I'm a new user and I'm not sure if I'm posting in the correct area. I'm looking for advice on my current situation.
I'm a 24yo F and I've recently started having some medical issues. I've had Focal Atrial Tachycardia for several years, but within the past 4 months I've had abnormal weight gain (about 60 pounds) and pain in my joints (mostly my knees).
Today I had sudden numbness in some of my fingers. In my right hand, my middle finger and ring finger. In my left hand, my pointer finger and my middle finger. It's been going on for about 4 hours now. A little bit of dizziness accompanied and a HR of 132. I'm currently at work and very conflicted if I need to leave to see a doctor. So I was looking for any sort of advice or possibly if someone has been through the same things? Thank you for your input in advance.View Thread
