~ Arms & Legs Have Cold Flushing Sensation ~

Discussion in 'Health and medical' started by Julian Mummery, Jun 19, 2004.

  1. 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


    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


    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!
