~ Arms & Legs Have Cold Flushing Sensation ~

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hi,

I have been getting a strange sensation in my arms, hands,
legs, feet and sometimes in my

back, neck and backside. I have also experienced it rarely
in my left cheek. It's like a

coldish sensitive feeling. The best I can describe it is
like someone blowing slightly on

that area, the most common feeling though is a random sort
of trickling cold feeling down my

arms and legs. It feels like I have tiny trickles of cold
water running down my legs and

arms.

The feeling comes and goes sometimes for days at a time.
When it is really bad my legs feel

like giving way a little but they don't actually give way.

I have seen the doctor numerous times over the last year and
he says that the arms are

'carpal tunnel syndrome' but cannot explain the rest as this
shouldn't affect the rest of my

body? I have had an MRI scan at the hospital and this
showed nothing.

Diabetes has been ruled out by blood tests, Multiple
Sclerosis has also been ruled out.

I used to wake up with pins and needles in my hands but have
been on a small dose of 'Amitriptyline' only 10mg. This
seemed to help but made me feel quite tired and ratty at

first.

I have also had acupunture, worked on my shoulder in the
past but just gave me problems this

time around, loads of bruising.

I am going to see a 'Chiropractor' on Friday 18th June 2004
as I know that when I lift heavy

things the 'Cold Flushing Sensations' are intensified for
the next week or so.

It's really starting to get me down and was wondering if
anyone has any idea of what is

happening to me, I am a single dad with two lovely little
girls (4 & 6 years) and I hope

whatever is happening to me doesn't turn me into a bitter
old man before my time.

Any advise would be appreciated.

Thanks for listening Julian

Hello Julian,

 

I realize this is a very old post but I'm trying my luck here. I'm a 27 year old female and I have been having the exact same symptoms. I have been experiencing cold flushing sensations through my left arm, then one day it decided to go through both sides of my body, arms, legs, feet, back, stomach. It also creeped up onto the left side of my face one day which scared me. I have no weakness or numbness or tingling, only the cold blowing sensation that you speak of. I was wondering if your condition has been diagnosed yet, and if you could let me know if what we have is serious or not. If you could get back to me asap it would be greatly appreciated.

 

Have a merry christmas and happy new year!

 

Sarah
