Tingling feeling all over body.

Posted by Ryman @ryman, Aug 27, 2017

Yesterday we went to a small state park. It was about 8 hours and was mostly riding. I awoke this morning around 4 AM with a tingling feeling moving all thru my body. It lasted till I got out of bed. I have vertigo, Lyme and a number of other things. Dehydration was suggested as a possibility. Any ideas? I happen to have an apt with my neurologist Tues so maybe she can shed some light on it. I have had at least one TIA, so weird things concern me. Thanks.

Hi @ryman,

I’m tagging Connect’s volunteer mentor, @johnbishop as he may have more insight. Is the tingling still present?

Hi @ryman,
I would just be guessing but I can share an experience I’ve had fairly often. I’m a side sleeper and most of the time my arm is under my pillow. I often wake up in the middle of the night with tingling in the hands and arms which the doctor has told me was most likely caused by pressure on a nerve (ulnar nerve I think). I will get up and after shaking my arm for a bit the feeling will return to normal – by normal I mean I still have some numbness and tingling in the hands and wrists from my polymyalgia rheumatica and carpal tunnel. Let us know what you find out from your neurologist on Tuesday – weird things bother me too!

Was the riding at the state park on a motorized vehicle? Just wondering if the vibration from 8 hours of riding might have caused it.

Thank you. No, it was gone in a few hours.

Thank you for the reply. Yes, it was mostly in a large pickup truck. We are planning a longer trip this weekend but it will be broken up by stops along the way. It will give me some idea, tho, if it was the trip. I actually had no problems while on the trip. I will see the neurologist tomorrow, so she may have an answer. I will let you know.

The neurologist thinks the weird things that I have been having are a form of seizures. She said something in my brain causes it. I also have hallucinations,I see and smell things. So she ordered a n EEG and a prescription for a low-dose anti seizure. I also have to have a sleep study and see a cardiologist. And have some blood work. So!

Hi @ryman
I'm having similar symptoms. Wondering if you ever got any answers from the EEG and cardiologist?

Hi. No, the tests didn’t seem to show up anything. I still have hallucinations tho not as bad as they were. I had untreated Lyme for over a year. The doctors don’t agree with me, but I think some of my problems go back to that. Except for the prescriptions I need I have pretty much given up on doctors. I hope you can find some answers.

Seizures? I habe a form of them and have had it since I was in my early 30's. Mines called Clots of Microangiopathy. All the doctor about that. I'm having another MRI son because of other complications to my head and brain. But….i hope this helps. You see I have 4 different cancers running through my body that I habe to watch constantly but my brain going off into jolts is scary. I take trileptal 1200mg from my doctor for it. Some days I spark off anyway and can't see anything but shadows but I come out of it. The care givers MUST REMAIN CALM. Then it's over till next time. My heart is with you.
