What causes pain,numbness and tingling in the left hand and foot?

For about 6 month I have been having severe left hand and foot pain along with numbness and tingling. For the past 2 weeks I have had severe headache on left side with nausea, sometimes seeing dots, dizziness and the pain in hand and foot is worse. Last month during the night I was even able to speak! Neurologist says its just a migraine, but I think its something more

Hi,

I have gone through your details and in my opinion, it is due to some activity in the brain like a migraine. However, if you feel otherwise, please get CT of brain and blood levels of Vitamin B12.

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

Regards,
Dr. Gopal Goel, Orthopaedic Surgeon

My 30 year old daughter still sucks her thumb and a pacifier. (Gave up smoking a few years ago). She lost her only sibling at age 14 yrs. to cancer. She is a child of divorced parents. Suffers from migraines, depression, anxiety and ADD. I find sucking a pacifier at her age extremely odd and wonder if something deeper is going on.
