A couple of weeks ago my right leg was going numb off and on. I had pain in my side, which I thought was my kidney and ended up in the ER. They did an ultrasound and couldn't find anything. Now, two weeks later, my right arm is going numb/tingling off and on, and within the last two days I've developed some upper back/neck pain and burning. Today it feels like my bottom lip is tingling. I've had some stress within the last month, and am prone to anxiety, but it just feels like it's more than that. I am uninsured, but signed up today (YAY) but I probably can't see anyone for another month, if not longer. I'm taking ibuprofen every 4 hours and at this point, I am desperate to feel normal. Can anyone recommend anything? Does this sound like something serious or just a nerve?View Thread
