Hi everyone,
I'm still undergoing process of diagnosis. I've had tingling before, but only on the left side. Now, it's on both sides. It starts going down the side of my head and down through my right or left arm. Then my arm becomes numb, like I'm coming off of novocaine. When the numbness comes, my arm then becomes weak and normal strength is diminished. I can't lift things. I can't even write.
The weird part is that while I have tingling, I'll get the sensation of cold water being poured down the inside of my arm. Then, I'll get goosebumps all down the arm, but the arm that doesn't tingle, is completely normal. No goosebumps. Has this ever happened to anyone? How can I get goosebumps down one arm, but not the other? What does it mean?

My doctor told me something about autonomic nervous system being messed with I think. Sometimes it can be hot and I don't sweat at all and I have chills and goosebumps on one or both arms or my neck like I'm cold. Then when it is cold out I will start sweating and turn red as a beet. I also started with left arm tingling and numb but recently they both are doing it. I feel like a fan motor is attached to me the vibration is so bad I swear I feel it in my teeth. This happened after a big thunderstorm I didn't even know was going on until I paused the DVD I was watching because I felt like I was being electrocuted or something. Hang in there!
