I started having strange muscle twitching in my lower legs and feet, then numbness and tingling in my left arm, hand, leg and foot in March. Now the tingling is in both arms, hands, legs, feet . I was diagnosed with Benign Fasciculations/slight cord compression C5/C6 from a neurologist after MRI, EMG and Nerve Conductivity test came back fine the end of March. These symptoms are continuing today. I’m currently getting chiropractic care and physical therapy. They both seem to help but it never goes away and then comes back a day or so after treatment. I was hoping you’d share your thougths on this what you think this might be and what I should do next, or just accept this diagnosis and deal with it. I have no weakness at all. It’s just very annoying!! I've been doing Low HR training using the 180 forumla since 2009 to build up my aerobic base. In October of 2011, I started Primal Blueprint fitness and eating Primal (Mark Sission) and still am today. I do still have some grains in the form of a few of beers on some weekends. I feel great other than this damn twitching and tingling. Thanks!
Well the question is - how much of the tingling is from the C5/6 cord compression because you're getting similar symptoms in your lower leg and feet - clearly not a direct result of some cervical cord compression. So perhaps there is no connection, just a coincidence.
Whenever I see someone or hear about numbness and tingling in their extremities I think about dysglycemia - blood sugar handling. Maybe you already have a handle on that since you're following Sission. Maybe not though. Have you had a HBA1C blood test done? That would be good to check. So would a CRP and a lipid panel.
The other thought is that maybe you're eating something you're allergic to that still is "Paleo" such as nightshades (tomatoes, potatoes, peppers, eggplant, paprika) or even eggs or coffee/cocoa.
Those are my thoughts!
