Question Tingling in arms and legs and short black outs

My husband has tingling in his arms and legs about 8-10 times a month. He also has had 5 extremely short black outs in the past 3 years. These last about 15-20 seconds at any given time.

I'm not sure if the black outs and tingling are related. He has worn a heart monitor, had EKG, EEG, MRI, nerve tests, and blood test. All show nothing wrong.

Anyone else experience this? Or have any ideas?

Those are not good signs. I don't like tests, but if I were you I would push for more and would not stop until somebody figures something out. I hope you have good insurance.

Re: Tingling in arms and legs and short black outs

this sounds like something i went through years ago. I have an important question for you. is your husband on mellaril, trazadone, or paxil, or any other antidepressant or antipsychotic? If so it's pseudoparkinsonism. My doc thought i was crazy when i was younger because he could not find any reason for my migraines so he put me on those 3 drugs and when i started having blackouts, going numb on one side of my body and my face drooping on one side he still told me i was crazy. all tests came back negative so he increased my meds and told me to get a life. I threw my meds away my junior year of high school and since then my life has been a dream, but up until 2 months ago I still didn't know why i would black out and go numb when i was younger. It was in {removed}a book right there in black and white. 3 degrees of pseudoparkinsonism. 1 was unsteady gait with slurred speech 2 was trembling, unsteady gait, memory lapses and 3 was blackouts, numbness resembling a stroke with drooping face and drooling. I hope this is some help to you please email me {removed} if this has helped you.
