I am a 48 year old female and have had numbness and tingling (more like when you have had your fingers in ice and then run warm water over them) in my fingers and the three middle toes on my left foot. It began about the middle of June this year. It began in the two middle fingers alternating on both hands, it is now less in intensity but in all fingers and the inside of both thumbs. Still only the toes on the left foot. It resently moved up to the palms also. At this same time I had a sensation of pressure in the throat as if someone had their finger on it. After no diagnosis except to say that my body was changing and was treated for thrush, I went to get a second diagnosis. The second doc said it was Reynauds and prescribed a low dose blood pressure pill. I was told all blood labs were okay. And was in no way due to any back or neck problems. My white blood count was 10.8 thous. The red blood count, hemoglobin and hemocrit were blanked out for some reason.
Thanks for listening
I decided to go to my chiropractor did xrays and found arthritis in c3 thru c5 and calcification over the right fifth rib. I'm not sure where to go from here. I get minor relief after a treatment, but it returns a day later. I wake up during the night with my fingers totally numb or from my husband waking me up telling me I sound as if I am gagging in my sleep.
Any ideas. Should I take the chiropractors findings to the MD?
