I went to a neurologist & theses are my test results
Positive ana titter 1:80 centromere pattern
The neurologist told me it was nothing to worry about, but he referred me to a rheumetologist. He said all of my blood test came back good other than ana & that some women just have a positive ana. My CTwas good my EEG good carotid ult sound good. My problem is that my feet turn numb from time to time & he knows that. His response was that's caused by stress. Is this true???

Well, you may have some disease process going on where stress makes it flare up and that causes inflammation and then numbness in the feet.

But follow his directions, see a rheumatologist and get everything checked out. Your feet shouldn't be doing that without some good reason behind it.

I also wanted to add was that it all started with a pain surrounding my ear. Tenderness surrounding the area I went to an ent & he thought it may be tmj. Could tmj cause this reaction? Also it wasn't till I had iodine injected into my right hand. It was the day after my CT with iodine contrast that my hand that the IV was in that it went numb with my right foot. Please let me know if tmj & stress could cause this?

You might have had a reaction to the contrast.
