Hi,I get coldness down both arms and tingling. That comes with sometimes shooting pain in my arm and also my arms feeling very weak. I get sensation of slight blurred vision. My stomach tends to go numb all the way across and then a feeling of it going down my body. I sensations of heat into my arms and legs sometimes and also light headedness. I sometimes feel like there is a circulation problem as I get strange numbness. I have had an endoscopy to rule out and ulcer as I was getting stomach pain. And also had a heart monitor for three days and ecg which were normal. I still get palpitations especially when I lie in my left side. Sometimes if I get a feeling in my chest or arm I feel it in my eye or face.

Hello. I'm The Good Dr., licensed and practicing physician. Excellent service is my goal.

usually this is a neck issue

has this been checked?

Customer: replied 9 days ago.
No. What would make it a neck issue?

because a pinched nerve in the neck can cause arm symptoms

another possibility would be MS
I recommend an MRI of the brain and cervical spine

Okay thanks I know I’m asking a lot of question but it’s just quite worrying when all these symptoms come in and I get palpitations etc and feel really light headed it is quite a worrying thing

The mri was on my spine
