Tingling feeling all over body.

Posted by @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!
