numbing tingling

Posted , 5 users are following.


I am a 21 year old female. I have been getting weird tingling in my hands and fingers right side of arm and numbing in both ankles. It feels like it spreads to my legs and like its locking them in place. Its ver scary and annoying. I have been to a rheumatologist and said everything is fine. No diabetes. I do have anxiety and so on. Has anyonr experienced this ?

Thank you

    I did a google search using these words: tingling in limbs feeling of locking

    And found a list of conditions which could include these symptoms.  Polymyalgia was not on that list.  I hope you can find some answers soon.

    Whatever it is you have it is very unlikely to be polymyalgia rheumatica as all the patients on here are old enough to be your grandparents - it is a disease of the elderly (well, over 50 at least!).

    As Anhaga says - could be a lot of things and isn't PMR so you can rule that out. Hope you get an answer - though I'd have thought a neurologist might be more helpful than a rheumatologist.

    How is your Vit D level and have you had glandular fever in the past? I'm not a doctor but tingling hands and feet combined with the above risk factors if you've had them, also being young and female, I would suggest you go back to your local doctor and ask to be tested for multiple sclerosis. Have you had an MRI?
