Hello, I'm writing this because I have had this happen twice so far. What happens is My face starts going numb and then it spreads down to my chest and my arms, its followed by anxiety, trembling/shaking, (its pretty much a panic attack but, what is its cause?) I got rushed to the hospital and doctors weren't sure of what it was. After I am tingly/numbed I do get the shaking, anxiety, The numbness/severity of all this gets worsened by about 10x for about 5 minutes and then stabilizes out to what it originally was. This again has happened twice, but this time 2 days after I have a really bad migraine and my mouth is numb, its like I can't really tell I have food in my mouth, it's really strange.

If anyone has any idea to what the heck this is PLEASE reply, Help me Identify this so I can get help.

  • Please seek the help of a very experienced Endocrinologist. So many endocrine problems can cause these symptoms. You need a complete workup for all of your hormone functions.Good Luck to you.
