What is the cause of tingling feeling around the arms during which neck and arm veins bulge out ?

For a year my husband has had several issues and symptoms...we have been to the hospital with chest pains, his arms tingle up to and around his neck. Says he feels sort of electricity feeling from lower back up to neck and then gets a slight headache . We have been told hypothyroidism and been given meds that made it worse. We ve been told Mono, Hernia , enlarged prostate, kidney stone, etc... Now when the tingling and cranpy feelings come on, his arm and neck veins bulge out. He seems pale, sallow, and seems to have aged since all this started. He has never had any health issues. His mom died of a stroke, Dad lived to 92, but was diabetic.

welcome to healthcaremagic
from the complains it seems that a total medical check up is essential for your husband from ahospital of repute
the main complains of pain demands a orthopedic consultation also to rule out cevical spondolysis/thoracic inlet syndrome
so many problems have been told about your husband and all need treatment
it is better to attend a good hospital and get total medical check up and get treatment as decided by doctors

I have a tingling feeling in the left side of my neck shoulder, arm, and leg. I had a headache earlier by my left temple, which I took an 800mg Ibuprofen for. The headache is still kind of there. I ve also had a dry cough (I will produce mucus occasionally) for the last week. What is this and what should I do?

I am a 54 y/o woman , in September I made a poor choice and jumped off a landing at a charity thingy . in my mind I said that s going to hurt later ..a week later I awoke and couldn t move my arms or legs I made an appt. with my doc ( took two weeks to see her ) and she had me sent to xray my chest , vascular testing, circulation testing , 2 weeks of blood testing , blood/fecal/urine , ears nose and throat guy , orthopedic doc who did xrays and ordered an mri ,my knees are beautifully healthy he says , though he never looked at my swollen fat painful knees in person . and next is a neurologist , so far everything looks fine . I am in agony daily , nights are worst, I keep pointing out that it is the bone between my shoulder blades that is pushed out I can feel the thing, a wrinkle in a shirt/sheet produces tremendous pain and no one has addressed this issue at all . however I had Lyme 5 years ago and am wondering if this is what is causing all these nerve issues ..neuropathy I think it was called ,,let me tell you what I am experiencing ,, tingling . numbness. heat/cold in the joints/muscles , spasms that feel like my veins are wiggling when I stretch my legs , pulses in my knees to feet area and shoulder to finger tips which are also very painful, like little knives cutting me , also my neck cracks which freaks me out , my toes turn blue ( yesterday I broke one so it is black/blue PAIN ) it has been six months and I walk like an 80 y/o, my calf muscles feel locked up and painful so walking to get my grandsons from school every day ( an hour ) has me literally in tears as my legs feel like they weigh 100 lbs each . my shoulders/arms are still locked up but have let go 3/4 of the way I can now move them halfway up and away from my body by slowly adding stretches and exercise every day . could this be neuropathy without diabetes , or the dreaded Lyme ? and what doctor should I actually go see to find out exactly what is going on here ? please and thank you

Hello Doctor, My name is Careyanne Johnson I am a 21 year old female. I am growing concerned with my well being because I have been experiencing some foreign symptoms. Starting with today the right side of my mouth has been partially numb for going on several hours now & I am having throbbing headache that comes and goes behind the back of my lower head & temples. Just a couple days ago my toes (on the right side again) were numb as well. I have also been having sharp, deep chest pains for a few months now. At first I thought it could maybe be heart burn but realized it is a much different ache. I think its safe to say the chest pains have grown more frequent because I m counting them every day now instead of once or twice a week. The only other symptoms I can think of is my ears will ring every now and then but still more so then I would think is normal. & I feel like I have poor circulation to my legs cause sometimes they feel stiff, however I also have a job where I stand without sitting for up to 8 hours a day. I have had Health issues in the past where I would become very light headed, my vision would go black, and I sometimes would faint. the fainting spells never lasted more then 5 mins. I was only unconscious for 30 seconds to 1 min. I have seen a neurologist and he conducted many tests, an MRI or brain scan being one of them. My results were all negative. The dr. did refer me to a cardiologist that I never went to. My fear is I may have a stroke or heart attack please help!

43 year old female, normal weight in good health. .Total hysterectomy done Dec. 2010, benign ovarian mass; 2 weeks after episode of PSVT, then next week chest pain and spasms. 1 episode of tachycardia of 140's bpm sustained for 1 hour. Preop ekg normal and new ekgs show slight t wave changes. Checked for PE, CT clear and lower ultrasound clear. ECHO 67% EF, normal nuclear and treadmill stress test, normal cardiac cath, carotid us. TSH was 5.4 at the beginning of Jan. but returned to 2.3 2 wks later. Taking Cartia 120 mg once daily and Metoprol 12.5 bid. Sent to cardio EP, who states that condition is due to low sodium levels and advised to up sodium. Sodium levels taken 3xs over this period have been between 133 -135. Intermittent slight chest pain continues, returning to work next week. Primary care does not believe it is due to low sodium levels, doing 24 hr osmality and sodium tests. Is there anything else we should look for?
