4-5 days ago i was lay in bed falling asleep, i started to feel tingles in the left of my face, this went into my arms and slightly into my legs.
I went to a+e because i'd never experienced this sensation before, CT scan was done as were reflex tests and docs said everything was ok
Since then the feeling has somewhat persisted
I generally wake up feeling somewhat ok but a little uneasy because the sensation is bizzare and its somewhat there in the mornings.. as the day progresses i tend to feel the sensation but nothing too bad but im always thinking of it, then from nowhere it will intesify
Theres no pain, like i was sat eating my dinner and the sensation hit, a feeling of lightheadedness, my face started to feel weird i can only explain it as like a heavyness along with a weakness and it almost feels numb and off but i still have sensation and i can still pull faces.. usually its one sided but today it hit me in my face, under the eyes and in both arms and i had the usual sense of dread.. I lay down for an hour and it helped a little
Im now sat at my PC typing this and all that's left over is my left arm feeling funny and weaker like its tired after what happened, and my left eye is feels tired and the cheek also feels a little weak and droopy but theres no physical changes and i still have control
I did go to a walk in centre yesterday and the doc there said from the CT scan, emergency tests and from the few tests he did to check my feeling he said hes positive it isn't related to a stroke or mini stroke, even more so because its been going on for a few days now and either a stroke or mini stroke would be noticeable and a mini stroke would wear off within 5 minutes to a day
He thinks it could be anxeity related but of course i had to google and i've come across a few things such a pinched nerve... or other more serious issues i'd rather not consider
Could a trap nerve cause this? in my face, arm and leg?.. could this really be anxeity even when it seems to be persistant and itensifies at random moments?
