I was dx'd with carpal tunnel syndrome which would explain the tingling in my arm and fingers, but now the tingling is in the back of my right leg and it's in my face too. My right cheekbone, rightsided jaw and throat all tingle now. It doesn't interfere with my swallowing though. Sometimes I feel like I'm off balance too if I'm really stressed out.

any ideas?

2 ct scans normal, heart tests normal, blood normal. I go for mri of brain tomorrow.

  • Have they done a EMG to see if you have any nerve problems, maybe in the neck area? It's amazing how the nerves all seem to meet. Sure can give you more problems. I have constant nerve pain in my ankle from Tarsal Tunnel. It's something I think I am going to just have to live with.

  • Sorry I forgot to say this. The doctors also told me that nerve damage can hit a point of no return. So don't let this go.

  • I also have a strange tingling right above my R upper eye that comes and goes, and then a constant superficial numbness in my L cheek. I also have tingling in my L arm/hand and it feels heavy. I have only had these symptoms over the past day or so, and I am really hoping it is because I have been under a lot of stress lately. I don't have any balance problems or anything else. I guess I will wait to see if these symptoms go away. I am interested to hear how your MRI goes.
