Loestrin numbness

Common Questions and Answers about Loestrin numbness


Then one week after I started I had the worst headache of my life in addition to numbness in my whole left side, and face, and nausea. I thought I was having a stroke at 21 years old! I endured multiple tests and the doctors found nothing wrong. My anxiety is through the roof! I gave speeches to crowds of 300+ people before without feeling the slightest bit nervous! Today I was scared to stand in the bank because I thought it would be robbed or held up, and I convinced myself I had tetanus!
Hi, I'm a 16 year old and have been experiencing spells of dizziness for about the last year as well as random numbness/tingling in my toes, feet, fingers, and hands. I am currently on zoloft for depression and sleep related problems but am coming off the medication with lowered dosages I also take loestrin.
I am 17 (Almost 18) Years Old And I Have Been Taking Loestrin Birthcontrol Pills For Atleast 9 Months. I Have Never Completely Missed A Day, Meaning I Take A Pill EveryDay, But Maybe Not At The EXACT Same Time. My Boyfriend And I Attempted To Have Sex For The First Time On The 17th Of This Month.. About Two Weeks And 2 Days Ago. He Was Not Wearing A Condom.
Symptoms are all over the body, from feet to scalp and consist of joint stiffness, muscle pain/soreness, twitching, burning, tingling, numbness and occasional stinging. Skin usually feels raw, like a sunburn, and sensations of cold feel a lot more pronounced. Had all neurological testing done about 2 years ago and I just repeated a brain MRI, EMG and now had a lumbar spine MRI. All were fine. A Rheumatologist and an Allergist also tested me for all types of disorders.
When I finish eating, the sensations go away, although I will have lingering feelings of very slight numbness to the skin. I have searched all over the web & can't find anything. I am ruling out allergy since nothing I eat is similiar. I had my blood sugar tested recently & that came back fine. I am on Toprol for borderline hypertension but I have my BP checked regularly & it has also been fine.
Spondylolosis and Disc Degeneration at L5-S1, and Degenerative Bone and Joint Disease. Numbness in tips of fingers on both hands and wrist pain (already had Carpal Tunnel Surgery in both). I sweat profusely, but am cold and clammy at the same time. I have also been having "hot' sweats lately. Also, In 2005 everything changed and I became ill with what was then diagnosed as Pancreatitis. I do not drink any alcohol and my gallbladder ( healthy) was removed.
I have been dignosed with General Anxiety Disorder.Now at times I expierence numbness in hands and feet, Didnt know if that was normal or not. I have not had an actual anxiety attack in the past week. But still feel the numbness, in my feet and hands the Dr says it normal but I think they are full of it..I think anxiety affects people differently, but I didnt thinbk it could cause this to hppen and feel like it never goes away.
My OB is suggesting I switch to Loestrin 24 fe but I just don't know if I'm willing to go through another potential merry-goround.
Thank you all for your posts. I'm writing this while I sit in the ER for my 3rd time in 3 weeks, hooked up to my "migraine cocktail" of diluaded, zofran, toradol, & decadron. I don't even know what the last 2 are, but I'm finally headache free, at least for awhile. It always comes back several hours after this IV. To answer your questions, I have had a CT of my head with contrast, but no MRI. Should i request this?
I've been on the Nuva Ring for a year and at first i didnt' get any side effects but maybe 3-4 months ago ive had terrible mood swings, i feel very depressed, mayor loss of hair, i also got a tingling on my right arm and currently experience leg pain..often get headaches, weight gain, breast enlargement, spotty darkening of my skin (face). I'm getting off the Nuva Ring this month. I don't recommend it!
I went to see a Neurologist today-he told me there was nothing he could do regarding my /bacl/sciatica/SI joint problems. This seems to be causing pain/numbness in my ankles/feet/toes. Has anyone ever had these symptoms and did they go away? I am really upset that visiting him was a waste of time and wondering what do I do next?
About 4 weeks ago my Dr. switched me from Loestrin to Seasonique... At first I thought everything was great, but today I realized that it was about 4 weeks ago that I started having really strange headaches. They are not exactly a miagrane yet they don't feel completely like a stress headache either. However, i teach so that could definetly be the probelm. I have been mood recently too. I just thought it was the headache caused by stress.
If I am just sitting, then the pain is generally bearable, still quite sore and occasional strong twinges and feeling like I've got a very full bladder all the time, but walking, man, the abdominal pain really flares up and the leg pain/numbness is crazy and totally unexpected and I don't really get why it's happening in the first place...
Only one worked, which was loestrin 24. The Bleeding is moderate with smaller clots, I have cramping and these weird contraction type things. I am now on a pill called Low Ovural that is bogus I was on it 1 month the bleeding never stopped-my Doc keeps saying give it time....hope much time Lady? Until I bleed over? This whole situation makes me wish I was born a male!!!!!
