I have migraines that cause my face to go numb, both my legs to go weak and get pins and needles and burning sensations. I can have altered sensation in both my feet and legs at the same time, this usually only lasts for short periods of time but happens on and off with twitching in the numb areas. Sometimes this can make it difficult to walk. I can also get a tingling tongue. I also sometimes get stabbing eye pain. I never feel sick or light sensitive but I have stabbing like pains in my head, like an electrical bolt. I have had repeat brain MRI on a T3 machine which have been normal. I never usually get severe headache just more weird sensations in my head.
Can migraine cause both legs to go numb at the same time? Or both arms at the same time? I was told migraine is only one sided? I have had spinal MRI and this is normal too.
Thank you for any info. Cheers, Eleanor.
Although the headache and many of the other sy...
What do knee pain, loss of motion, and decreased muscle strength have in common? They're all symptoms of knee osteoarthritis. Osteoarthritis (OA) is a condition of joint and bone damage. Knee OA is found in many people over age 65. Exercises to reduce pain and improve strength and motion seem to help with knee OA. Physical therapists are always looking for new and better exercises to use. Knee OA causes some of the same problems as knee ligament injuries. For example, patients may feel that the knee will "give way" or buckle during daily activities. They may also feel that the knee joint is "slipping." Physical therapists tried using an exercise program for ligament injury to help a patient with OA. A 73-year-old woman with mild knee OA in both legs agreed to try this program. The program worked on two things: balance and agility. Agility is the ability to move quickly and easily. This helps the knee handle sudden changes in direction and twisting movements. Balance helps keep the knee...
Studies show muscle weakness after total knee replacement (TKR) is common months and even years after the surgery. This study compares the force produced during a single-leg press after TKR. Nine patients with TKR were compared to nine adults without TKR (the control group). This is the first study to measure force produced by the leg after TKR in a weight-bearing position. It's unique because force is examined across several joints using many muscle groups. This gives a better idea of what's going on in a fully weight-bearing position. Other studies have reported on forces in one joint at a time. Often only the knee extensor muscles are tested. The authors report that there is much less force through the leg with the joint replacement. These measures were lower when compared to the patient's healthy leg and when compared to the control group. This shows that the entire leg, not just one set of muscles, has less power. The researchers suggest that the loss of force in the leg with the TK...
