Question: Tingling and Sweats

 gr8jimbo - Fri May 04, 2007 7:36 pm

I am a 44 year old male, thin build. For 3 years now, tingling in my head, extremities. More predominant at night when sleeping. Get awakened by tingling and feeling of jittery nervous excitement but pulse is normal. Always cold, my temperature is between 96 and 97.6 F but a bath will bring it up to 98.6 F. Picture of health my whole life. MRI, CT Scan, ultrasound, xray, EEG, sleep studies, bloodwork (CRP, basic thyroid and such) normal. Have been told it is nothing. 1 month is nothing, 3 years is something. My mother died of an aneurism 2 years ago and suffered from many of the same symptoms with no solutions either. Neurologist prescribed .5mg clonazepam but it doesn't do much. I stopped taking it. Any ideas. Thanks.

User avatar Most of my thoughts sound as if they have already been tested for. It may be worthwhile rechecking your thyroid levels to be sure that they are ok.

Being sure to get good aerobic activity is important as it may be an issue of poor circulation causing some of these symptoms.

If these symptoms continue I would recommend that you follow up with your doctor. Persistent is usually the key to finding out what is going on.

Best wishes.
