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...
Most of us with RA have pain in our feet and ankles. According to an article I read on Medscape, up to 85 percent of people with RA will experience painful feet or ankles at sometime during their life with this disease. During the first year of diagnosis, 57 percent of patients report foot and/or ankle pain.
Statistics are important, but statistics are numbers. What really matters to us is that our feet hurt . When our feet hurt, we have trouble getting around, and that is a bad thing for anyone. Not being able to walk keeps us from going places we want to go. It limits even more the amount of exercise we are able to do on a daily basis, and it isolates us socially.
A few weeks ago, I was experiencing a lot of pain in my feet and ankles. I noticed that I was “shuffling” instead of walking, and I was walking on the inside edges of my feet. My ankles were turning in, as evidenced by the shoes sitting in my closet. They all looked as though a I was wearing them w...
Q. I definitely want to avoid lymphedema. Is there anything I can do to ward it off, or is lymphedema totally random? A. The very best thing you can do to help prevent lymphedema is to make sure you get full range of motion back in your arm, whether after surgery or radiation. Favoring the arm on your affected side, hunching your shoulder protectively, being too stiff to stretch your arm up over your head and around towards your back–these are all things that will make it easier for lymphedema to gain a foothold. I have a friend who’s a physical therapist specializing in lymphedema treatment. In fact, we became close as she gave me daily massages to relieve my own swollen arm. (Just as getting a tummy tuck is the silver lining of a tram flap reconstruction, a daily massage is the big plus of having lymphedema!) This friend says that women who’ve had surgery, particularly a mastectomy with lymph node removal (even if just a single node) need physical thera...
