297 Possible Causes for Hypesthesia, Paresthesia

  • Peripheral Neuropathy

    Sural nerve biopsy leaves a patch of hypesthesia in the lateral aspect of the foot that is usually well tolerated.[] Chemotherapy-induced peripheral neuropathy is a debilitating side effect of chemotherapy, which manifests as paresthesias, dysesthesias, and numbness in the hands and feet[] Patients present with pain, paresthesias, or weakness along a specific nerve distribution or experience generalized peripheral neuropathy.[]

  • Leprosy

    The hallmark signs of leprosy are hypesthesia (an abnormally weak sense of pain, cold, heat, or touch), skin lesions, and peripheral neuropathy.[] 18-year-old man presented with a 4-year history of erythematous patches on the trunk, followed 2-years later by multiple nodules, mostly located on the limbs, and distal paresthesias[] […] multi-systemic symptoms and signs 3,6 : cutaneous erythematous plaques peripheral lower limb oedema mixed peripheral neuropathy (often with resultant injuries) /- hypoesthesia/paresthesia[]

  • Small-Fiber Neuropathy

    Correspondingly, mild sensory symptoms including diffuse dysesthesias, paresthesias, and hypesthesia were found in 7 patients.[] The most common symptoms of SSFN recorded were numbness, pain and paresthesias (an abnormal sensation, such as numbness, tingling, or burning), mainly in the face, trunk,[] Painful sensory paresthesias can be treated with anti-seizure medications, antidepressants, or analgesics including opiate drugs.[]

  • Lyme Neuroborreliosis

    […] patient developed night sweat, arthralgia in elbows, wrists, proximal interphalangeal joints (PIPs) and strong neuropathic pain in both legs, followed by paresthesia and hypesthesia[] The most frequent symptoms/signs were radicular pain (100%), sleep disturbances (75.3%), erythema migrans (59.7%), headache (46.8%), fatigue (44.2%), malaise (39%), paresthesias[] […] the 63-year-old patient developed night sweat, arthralgia in elbows, wrists, proximal interphalangeal joints (PIPs) and strong neuropathic pain in both legs, followed by paresthesia[]

  • Cervical Radiculitis

    In addition being alert to the fact that periods of myofascial pain may be associated with what the patient calls numbness of the thumb without hypesthesia to cold or touch[] Tingling, “pins and needles” sensations (paresthesia). Muscle weakness or twitching in the affected area. Frequent feeling that a foot or hand has “fallen asleep.”[] Case Presentation: A 35 year old woman awoke with acute onset of severe diffuse neck pain accompanied by tingling paresthesias of both arms and hands.[]

  • TTR Amyloidosis with Polyneuropathy

    The 6 patients presented with polyneuropathy and autonomic dysfunction such as diarrhea and/or impotence and other neurologic signs, including hypesthesia, hypalgesia, numbness[] Characteristics [ edit ] Usually manifesting itself between 20 and 40 years of age, it is characterized by pain , paresthesia , muscular weakness and autonomic dysfunction[] Sensory neuropathy starts in the lower extremities with paresthesia, impaired pain and temperature sensation, followed by loss of motor function.[]

  • Chronic Inflammatory Demyelinating Polyneuropathy

    After 8 months, quadriplegia and hypesthesia recurred. Immunoglobulin therapy at this time had no effect, but steroid therapy had some effect.[] The authors present the case of a 65-year-old woman who was admitted for paraparesis and paresthesias in the inferior limbs.[] She had distal numbness and paresthesias, minimal distal weakness and impaired vibratory sensation.[]

  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

    Carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) is a common and sometimes challenging condition, which causes pain; paresthesia; tingling of the thumb, index and long fingers; and even thenar[] Symptoms include pain and paresthesias in the median nerve distribution.[] Distribution of paresthesia throughout the skin area without median nerve innervation is frequently seen in carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS).[]

  • Multiple Sclerosis

    A 35-year-old pregnant woman was admitted with acute onset of paresthesias and word finding difficulty. Initial MRI scan of the brain was suggestive of ischaemic event.[] The patient presented with progressive decrease of visual acuity, intermittent diplopia, paresthesia of the left arm and equilibrium disturbances.[] MS symptoms may include visual loss, extra-ocular movement disorders, paresthesias, loss of sensation, weakness, dysarthria, spasticity, ataxia, and bladder dysfunction.[]

  • Guillain-Barré Syndrome

    CONCLUSIONS A case of a rare variant of GBS is presented with facial diplegia and paresthesia and with unilateral facial palsy.[] Lower extremity weakness with upper and lower extremity paresthesias developed progressively 11 months post transplantation, coinciding with immune control of CMV.[] The patient was treated with intravenous immunoglobulin and experienced near-complete neurologic recovery, reporting ongoing mild paresthesia up to 2 months later.[]
