Question: My 9 yo daughter experienced cold hands and feet, tingling sensation of the face, legs and arms and clenched hands and feet for an hour, or so last night before the symptoms subsided. She never had this occur before and I'm wondering what might have triggered these symptoms?

Thanks for getting back to me. There was no loss of consciousness, no Clonic movements, no past history and no emotional trauma, or stress issues I'm aware of. She was eating a bowl of canned soup and the symptoms came on abruptly.

Brief Answer:
Needs observation.

Detailed Answer:
Hi XXXX,
Thanks for being in follow up and providing further details.

In view of detailed clinical history,this episode does not appear to be fitting into a true neurological/organic event as yet.

Though,it appears to be paychogenic in origin.However,the possibility of an atypical seizure can't be ruled out.

It needs further observation.It should be evaluated if it recurs.

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!

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.
