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.
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.
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.
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?
Thank you both for your quick responses and I hope you both can beat this awful anxiety soon. Do either one of you get the head numbness symptom? Almost like you can't concentrate, feel like your going to pass out, just weird can't really describe it type feeling? That one scares me the most.
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!!!!!
