Tingling in the legs and arms after a bowel movement. Could this be due to a cardiac related problem?

I was having a bm and went into a major sweat, my legs and arms went tingly and felt cold , but mostly I was dripping sweat in about 30 seconds...I never thought of it but is there a possibility that it could have been cardiac related? I have never felt like I was going to die...but with this I did. After about five minutes it let up and I went outside and colled was strange...

Hi there,

Thanks for writing in.

I definitely think this warrants further investigation like ECG, ECHO, Blood sugars , lipid profile, etc.

The possibilities are diabetes, coronary artery disease, panic attack/anxiety etc.

Please visit your doctor as soon as possible and get evaluated.

Have a nice day.
