Pre PMR diagnosis I had an occasional numbness amd tingling in a oval shaped spot on my right thigh above my knee. The neurologist said it was because i was over weight (i am about 55 lbs over weight) and my stomach fat was pushing in a nerve. When I asked why it wasn't on both sides je said he didn't know.
PMR diagnosed and I still have this spot, however it has been spreading to a bigger area and has woken me from a deep sleep with the burning. Also, on both of my legs, in the calf area I have been having pain and my legs and feet are more cold than warm. I did mention the coldness to my Rheumy, he didn't seem concerned. I have been dealing with a headache off and on for about a week.
However, today I woke up with a headache my arm and whole leg on the right side were on fire and tingling, I am nauseous, have a headache and neckache. After being awake for a while the burning sensation is gone but my leg just feels weak. Also noticed that now my left leg is tingling from the thigh down never had that before.
Don't want to appear as a hypochondric, but I am very uncomfortable sitting or standing. Any suggestions?
