Has anyone had one part of their body like a hand that stays swollen, lost feeling and strength in left side, like your hand goes to sleep but it never woke up? pain under the arm pit/shoulder, radiates down to your feet and you take on infections like the shoulder or knee, where it is 5 to 6 times the size of the other side? Now it is creeping into my right side and loosing strength to the point I can’t even screw a screw driver a couple of times without cramping, loosing vision but not blind but all on left side so far things have gone down hill??

Hi @walden0228, and welcome to Connect. I found some information on the causes of numbness in hands and arms that I think you may find helpful (http://www.mayoclinic.org/symptoms/numbness-in-hands/basics/definition/sym-20050842).

You’ve mentioned a variety of symptoms that you’re experiencing, so I’m wondering if talked to a doctor yet? If not, I would encourage you to visit your physician to determine the cause of the pain, loss of vision and weakness. I’ve included a link to request an appointment at Mayo Clinic, if that’s something you’re interested in. (tp://mayocl.in/1mtmR63).

I’m also tagging @calico93, who wrote about similar loss of feeling in an earlier post.

Thanks and I have been to several Doctors but the fluids have not been ID that is causing the mysterious swelling in the legs where I just had leg/knee drained but left hand is huge, purple, and no feeling in fingertips along with areas of my face which I had a episode yesterday that was on the web thru that link I ran into about MS where I going to the bathroom getting hit out of the blue and not being able to get there in time, which I didn’t know that was a part of it, also the newest thing that really freaked me out was a electrical shock on the right side of my face that stemmed from my Jaw to neck upward through my eye that actually was hard to tell where the heck it was coming from until after about 10-15 minutes it felt like my face was numb and hanging cause I could not keep my right side of lips closed and I was drooling in a napkin. The video where the Mayo Doctor did his 12 minute video on symptoms hit 100% which I felt like what I have documented and been through over the past two to three years looking back which I didn’t start taking pics of my hands, knee, face, or shoulder and feet/legs until after the drains were removed from my shoulder and had surgery later due to whatever the fluid was that infected my shoulder ate up all my shoulder leaving it noodle like to work with and the only thing to truly fix it and keep shoulder from coming out of place was to drill a screw in the labrum and muscle which with my SED RATE as high as it was he was worried it would get into my bone which I feel like it may have got into my bone since that bone spur was taken off by another Dr a month before!
My blood work came back today with a 130 enzyme count in my Liver and White Blood cells elevated which was like this last year and they thought they had made a mistake because it was so high they made me come back in a few weeks later and it was back down within a tolerable range but now here we are again, they want me to seek Mayo or Emory which I just set myself up with Rochester, Minnesota MAYO since Jacksonville, Fla does not have the MS doctor anymore cause she left last year! SO that sucks since I have family there and could of stayed with them but I can travel up there alone and hopefully find out or get to the bottom of all this if I am still here in 3 months cause they said it would it take that long but I can’t afford to keep traveling back and forth so hopefully these symptoms will settle down in the mean time but the progressiveness of it all has been relentless!
Thanks again for your help!!
