Brief Answer:
A neurological condition to consider.

Detailed Answer:
Hello and thanks for using HCM.

I have read the question that you posted and understand your concerns.

Numbness is mainly an attribute of the nervous system dysfunction, so, since there is a localization in the left extremities, a problem ( compression ) of your cervikal spinal cord or right side of the brain ( a lesion for example ) should be considered.

Multiple sclerosis also may result in such symptoms.

Before to go further with tests such MRI, a neurological examination is necessary.

Discuss with your Neurologist about these issues.

Hope you found the answer helpful

Take care.

Brief Answer:
MS to consider then.

Detailed Answer:
Welcome back.

Okay then, multiple sclerosis should be considered as a possibility.

Besides brain MRI, it is necessary for a cervical spinal cord MRI too, and, probably for a spinal tap and cerebrospinal fluid examination about oligoclonal bands.

Discuss with your Neurologist about these issues.

Hope this helps.

I'm a 40 year old female, healthy, although I am overweight, prediabetic, and on medication for a rapid heart beat. I was diagnosed with a bad sinus infection last week and given a course of zithromax (finished it yesterday) other than a lingering sore throat and some ear pressure/pain i'm improving. Today while crocheting with my head bent forward my nose started to drain from the left nostril a clear but to my shock a bright yellow watery fluid (think a highlighter yellow) is this just ear/sinus fluid draining as I get better or should I be concerned of something more serious like csf fluid leakage (no head trama suffered) I guess what I'm asking is should I go to the er or ignore it?
