Hi and welcome to question doctors.com this symptoms cannot be neglected at all you need to go to the ER as soon as you can get brain MRI and blood viscosity tests.. This indicated transient ischemIc attack..drink plenty of water .

this can be due to microvascular insufficiency. If there are minor blood related issues,especially clotting-related,then it can cause such transient episodes of tingling,numbness and weakness . You should see a microvascular surgeon and get peripheral angiogram done to see for any minor blockages.


Hello there
This can be due to peripheral neuropathy.get vitamin B6 and B12 tested. Associated brain problems should also be kept in mind. Get a mri of brain to rule out these possibilities. Start on vitamin supplements .
