    Post numb left side, stress related?

    For the past few months, I have had a sharp pain underneath my left shoulder blade. I didn't really think much of it, i just thought it was from sitting at a desk all day and bad posture. Recently, the left side of my body, particularly my left cheek and left foot have started to become "tingly". Not quite numb but definitely feel out of place. I am under an enormous amount of stress right now (moving cross country in a couple weeks). Could this be stress related? My GP wasn't too concerned about the numbness, but I am!

    I forgot to mention that I have quite a bit of nausea/loss of appetite as well. Basically, I just don't feel myself.

    It could well be stress, but I'd go get a doctors opinion to rule out anything else.

    Stress can cause tingling by messing with your blood CO2 levels. I get tingling around my lips and in my hands when i get very stressed.
