I wish I could help you, but you'll need to see your doctor to get an accurate diagnosis for your symptoms. There are a number of different possibilities. It will take a physical exam and possibly some tests to identify the source of your problems. 


Wishing you the best,

I have a simular problem , except I tingle all over. I feel it in my throat and feet and legs. Even sometimes in my lips. I cannot find a doctor to tell me what this is . I guess because i am female they think it is in my head. I wish.

My left an right leg front, inner thighs and once in a while outer thighs discomfortably tingles all the time to an extent of me putting a pillow in between the legs. The pain at times becomes with sharp needle like pains and of late with numbness on the left leg that makes it difficult to walk. Once in a while too, the first three smaller toes twist with cramps to an extent of calling for massage to go back to position. What would be the best pacacea for my illhealth. I have so far done CAT and MRI scans, taken physio and nothing seem to be working for me. What can I do more and what is this ailment. Please help me
