Hi,I am a 25yo female. I had a smear test last week and strangely the day after I have experienced numbness and slight pins and needles in the left side of the body for the last 3-4 days. I have also been waking each morning feeling nauseous.My Doctor seems to think this may be Anxiety related as I have normal bowel movement, can urinate fine etc.
Today I have woken up to a burning, numb, pins and needle sensation in my left groin & left hip although my leg isn't as bad as it has been? Do you know what may be causing this? I have had a blood test this morning but will only receive results after the weekend and I am very anxious.Please note I am a vegetarian and have been for 11 years (since the age of 14) Never been tested for iron deficiency.
