Left Side Limb Pain, Numbness

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

Does anyone know if there is a connection between Celiac and osteo/nerve issues?  Are Celiacs prone to osteopathic or nervous tissue degenerative diseases?

 

My history - diagnosed with Celiac about 3 yrs. ago - gluten free ever since.  Since then, internal carotid dissections and aneurysms thought to be caused by Fibromuscular Displaysia, Tension Migraines.

 

Recently - waking up from sound sleep with burning pain - left side only - from neck/chest/shoulder down to fingers.  Pain feels like it's deep in the bone.  Occurs a couple times per week with varying severity.  It does not seem to matter what I'm doing - sleeping, driving, just sitting there...  After the pain (and sometimes along with it) comes numbness, sometimes tingling.

 

I ask because I just came from the hospital for such pain.  I thought I had suffered a heart attack.  I didn't.  My doctors are bewildered and so am I.  I have a follow up with my primary next week and I'd like to offer some ideas as to what they might want to check for.

           

Thanks for your input!

I would be thinking more along the line of a TIA, than a HA.    keep a detailed diary, see if you can correlate symptoms with some sort of activity.  ?cervical issues?  spine doc/chiro ?

About two years ago I started experiencing tingling on the tops of my feet when I applied lotion.  A year ago I had a bad kink in my neck and couldn't move for two days. It felt like a pinched nerve and it wasn't muscle related.  I had to be very careful not to turn my neck as well as the rest of my body the pain was so bad.  A year later I had the same problem in my lower back.  About 2 months ago I started experiencing a burning sensation on my outter left hip area.  I think this is all related to neuropathy problems but I haven't been tested because I told my doctor the hip pain isn't bad enough to justify taking medication that would probably only cause other problems.  If I had the neck and back problem more often then I would look at testing because that felt like I was being tortured.  Good luck!

I spoke with a family member who is a chiropractor & he said to ask my doctor to check me out for 'thorasic output syndrome', so that's on my to-do list. 

 

I worried about a TIA also, especially considering my history.  Obviously I need more testing - symptoms are still present. 

 

To twe0708 - 'neuropathy problems'?  Could you elaborate?  Do you know what the testing is for that?  Everything you mentioned, I have had also at different times recently.

 

Thanks & Take Care!
