Hypochondria, anyone? [Jan. 21st, 2008|09:31 pm]
Peripheral
Okay, just putting it out there in case anyone might know.

Over the past few days, my feet have been going numb, and starting today, so have my hands. It's a really weird feeling like right before you get pins and needles, but the pins and needles never come. I believe I am running a low-grade fever, and my eyes have been dry lately, but that could be unrelated. Last night, the numbness in the feet/legs was really bothersome and it was difficult to get comfortable enough to sleep. I've already WebMDed it, but don't want to over react. Thought about phoning TeleHealth, but haven't for the same reason.
I have a doctor's appointment in a week, so I am hoping I can wait until then.

going to the ER would be over reacting, calling TeleHealth is proactive and smart but not overboard. i would do that.

Thank you. I'll do that if I feel worse in the morning.

That's how my left hand has felt, right before th pins and needles, and I actually get the pins and needles and it starts to go numb if I put pressure on my elbow (like leaning on it). It's been better. Either that, or I got used to it. It's probably the later.

well, it started with both my feet, and now both my hands. Yeah, I'm worried that I won't be able to tell if it gets better or if I'll just get used to it.
