Question: I was recently diagnosed with moderate carpal tunnel syndrome in both hands. I have also been feeling a weird numb tingling sensation with I touch my lower leg. Is it related to my carpal tunnel?

Brief Answer:
Get investigated as advised

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
I have gone through your question and understand your concern.

Carpal tunnel syndrome involves upper limb with compression of median nerve.

However, lower limb symptoms may be present if carpal tunnel syndrome is due to diabetes, hypothyroidism, joint disease.

Treatment should be continued as it may also improve lower limbs symptoms.
Do get yourself examined and evaluated by a neurologist.

Hope you found the answer helpful. Please let me know if I can assist you further.

I have a dear friend whom woke up one morning with a blackened/ red eye lid. There was a slight swelling but no tingle sensation/ numbness. The discoloration goes over her upper eye lid to almost her nose . She did not receive any trauma to the eye. There is no vision problems, and no other apparent symptoms? I am worried that this could be a secondary condition? I have researched this , and I have come up with no ideas. Any thoughts? Thank you in advance!

Doctor, I am an 18 year old male, I recently came back from a week in Cuba, and about halfway during my stay I started getting minor mouth sores (canker) and a slight tingling/irritation of the skin on the outside of my cheek of the responding side of the sores, very small bumps aswell leading from my lip/mustache line to my chin, slight redness, very small bumps (not visible, you have to feel) and slight dryness of skin, my oral hygiene is very good. I live in Vancouver and it is very cold. my doctor has prescribed me Cortate ointment for the skin on my cheek, but it does not seen to be helping.
