I experience numbness on my right side, specifically in my head, face, neck, interior of right arm and my last 2 fingers. It is not fully numb but that tingly feeling. Also, at times, I feel that it is a chore just to hold my head up. My right hand also gets colder than my left (I am right handed). I have yet to see a doctor again about this because the last 2 or 3 times, I was told it was nothing.

I am considering going to a Neurologist and asking for an MRI.

Any suggestions?

  • Most doctors who tell you a problem is "nothing t worry about" are merely suggesting that they do not have a clue and give you this ridiculous response so they do not expose their inept abilities.I experience the same as you, only on the left side and I have an appointment to see a neurologist.I suggest you do NOT take this doctor's word -- get another doctor who's not an airhead.
