HI

Thanks for posting your query.

Carpel Tunnel with cause numbness only in hands not on one whole side of body. I am suspecting some problem with blood supply to your brain which is causing these symptoms.( including difficulty swallowing )

I advise you to get MRI Brain to check the status of your Brain. Kindly revert back to me with reports.

Hope this information was useful to you.

Regards.
