Suggest Treatment For Locking Of Right Hand And Jaw

My teenage son plays baseball. For the last few years, during sprinting exercises, he loses feeling in his arms and legs. He also revealed that his jaw and right hand lock . Once he stops running it takes 15-30 seconds tops to feel normal again. Does this sound like anything you ve ever encountered? His pediatrician didn t have any answers.

I think we need to consider myotonia here. Please discuss this possibility with his pediatrician.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care.

my hubands right hand has non stop tremors, has been this way for over 8 years. does not shake when he sleeps. it has not spread or gotten any worse. Is it some sort of palsy? We do not think it is Parkinsons since it has been many years and it is localized to just his right hand.

I have sensitivity to cold on my hands and feet, but primarily on my hands. Three days ago I noticed my right thumb was numb. Then later a bruise appeared on the tip. I do not remember hurting my thumb at all. Can you help explain what this could be? Thank you!
