I have full body burning, vibrating, tingling, numbness all over?

I have full body burning, vibrating, tingling, numbness all over and feel as if my upper body (rib cage/lungs area) is always tight. Its everyday all day and constant in hands & feet with weakness for 3 months now. Waiting on blood work etc. Not sure if it can be compressed nerves affecting the pain all over. I read peripheral neuropathy is an HIV symptom

Hi
I need you to check your heart first do an EKG and echo to check your heart then explore other possibility like diabetes or thyroid imbalance
I do not see how a nerve compression can affect the whole body
Good Luck

It could be many things like peripheral neuropathy or compressed nerves,but to be more helpful please let me know your age/sex/other history?
Have you been through any lab tests like CBC,thyroid?

hi,
this can be a symptom of peripheral neuropathy,not necessarily due to an HIV.
you can start on multivitamin and protein supplements till you get ur blood reports.

Hi..
Thanks for the query..

Your symptoms are pointing towards Peripheral Polyneuropathy and it is not a symptom of HIV..

Rather it is commonly seen in patients with uncontrolled Diabetes and other causes..

I would suggest you to consult a Neurophysician and get evaluated and investigation like blood tests to check for sugar levels, vitamin B 12, thyroid etc has to be done..

MRI, and CT scan can be done to check for nerve compression and other causes..
Electromyography should also be done..

Hope this helps..

Regards..
