Does anyone else get tingly hands, especially fingers and jelly legs alot?  I have been having this almost every morning.  I am wondering if it is my anxiety issues or related to the Crohns/UC (my doc says he no longer is sure which one it is :(  )
Thanks in advance.

Well I suffer with anxiety too and those could also be related to anxiety. Have you been feeling bad Crohns wise lately? I was wondering if maybe you are feeling bad Crohnswise then in turn triggering your anxiety about getting sick again. I know with my anxiety I tend to get where I start breathing a little faster and that will bring on the tingling. Another thought, have you had your B12 checked lately, that can cause some tingling too. Good luck!

I don't see Flagyl in your list of meds...if youare taking it, you should address the tingling with your doctor.
Other than that, I follow with nanners...I get a lot of tingling when I am B12 deficient. I also find I have the wobbly legs when my anemia is in a worse state---like the muscles feel shaky because they are oxygen deprived.
Dx'd '90 (emergency rupture), symptoms ignored long before that, '03 fistulas and bad flagyl reactions, B12 weekly, Pentasa [until I surrender to the bigger meds]
I'm riding on the escalator of life....

I have this also, plus cramps when I stretch, it's called peripheral neuropathy due to B12 deficiency. It progressed to my facial area and even feel it when I wear sunglasses or carry a shoulder strap pocketbook. Sometimes I don't notice it as much thank goodness. but in my case it is permanent, because I wasn't treated early enough. Anxiety can sometimes make you hyperventillate, which can make your fingers tingly and hands crampy.

Since it is in the morning after sleeping, possibly you have some kind of nerve pinching happening - possibly due to back issues? I see Cal/Mag on your list of supplements - do you have osteo? Maybe a referral to a specialist (rheumatologist, or ?) would be a good idea?
