What causes numbness and tingling sensation all over the body?
To check for ischemia brain and cervical spondylosis
Thank you for your query.
I'm Dr. Shuba Hariprasad and will be answering your query today.
Based on your symptoms I would like to primarily rule out ischemic stroke (transient) and cervical spondylosis (nerve compression at neck spine level)
Would you clarify a few things for me please?
*what is your height and weight?
*do you smoke or consume alcohol?
*do you have any other medical issues (diabetes, heart disease, for instance)? Or take any medications?
*any history of surgery or injury/accident?
*how often do these symptoms occur? Everyday?
Any particular triggers that you noticed? Like working for long, looking up with neck extended (bent back), bending, sudden change in position?
*any changes in the clarity of speech? (noticed by others)
*any headache, giddiness or sweating? Vomiting? Nausea?
I recommend :
- a physician consult
-an electrocardiogram a day echocardiogram
-MRI of the brain with MRA and MRV( for the blood supply in your brain) and of spine
-blood tests (complete blood count, Thyroid stimulating hormone, electrolytes, kidney and liver function tests, lipid profile, blood glucose panel)
Based on the clinical findings and test results, a treatment plan will be initiated.
I urge you to seek medical attention as soon as possible to avoid serious complications like a massive stroke or spinal disc collapse.
Hope this helps.
Please let me know if there is anything else I can help you with.
Wish you good health.
