I have heard of members with numbness and tingling, but I do not remember it being only on one side. Also you mentioned you will be driving and all of a sudden not know where you are.
I would suggest seeking a second opinion as there may be something other than anxiety causing these problems.
It also sounds like your doctor is blowing off your concerns which does not seem to be a lot of help to you.
Keep posting and Happy New Year.

I also have numbness and tingling on only one side, my left. Sometimes it will start with my lip, and move to my eye, and then it will be my pinky finger, and then my had will feel funny.This usually lasts for days, or weeks, until I come out of my anxiety. I went to the ER for this once and had a cat scan, and the dr told me it was anxiety. They gave me a instant pill, and yup, it made it go away, or maybe just knowing the cat scan was ok made it go away, i dont know. I just wanted you to know that even though its not listed in all the symptoms of anxiety, this could happen too. Good luck
