263 Possible Causes for Paresthesia of Lower Extremity

  • Lumbar Disk Herniation

    Lumbar nerve roots feed the nerves of the lower extremities, so symptoms from lumbar disc herniation are generally felt in the lower extremity, although pain may be felt in[] Sensory symptoms include sharp, shooting, electrical-type pain sensations, as well as paresthesia (pins and needles) or numbness.[]

  • Restless Legs Syndrome

    […] creeping or crawling sensations) and sometimes pain in the upper or lower extremities; symptoms are more prominent when patients are inactive or recline and peak in severity[] Vesper's curse" is a transient lumbar stenosis caused by venous plexus engorgement from increased right atrial filling pressure while lying down; the stenosis results in lower-extremity[] RLS is a sensorimotor disorder characterized by an irresistible urge to move the legs, arms, or, less commonly, other body parts, usually accompanied by paresthesias (eg,[]

  • Tarsal Tunnel Syndrome

    Abstract The accessory soleus muscle is a rare anatomic variant, which presents as a mass in the posteromedial aspect of the ankle. This anomaly has been linked with compression neuropathy of the posterior tibial nerve. The authors present a case of tarsal tunnel syndrome in which the presence of an accessory[…][]

  • Spondylolisthesis

    OBJECTIVE: Segmental instability traditionally is investigated with flexion and extension (F/E) radiographs. We sought to determine whether motion between upright and supine (U/S) views can serve as an alternative sensitive diagnostic tool that predicts similar outcomes. METHODS: Ambispective collection of data was[…][]

  • Lumbar Radiculopathy

    […] in the lumbar spine with a distribution of symptoms that has extended distal to the gluteal fold on at least one lower extremity within the past 24 hours based on the patient's[] […] information Ages Eligible for Study: 18 Years to 60 Years (Adult) Sexes Eligible for Study: All Accepts Healthy Volunteers: No Inclusion Criteria: Chief complaint of pain and/or paresthesia[]

  • Pernicious Anemia

    We describe a case of a young black woman with gradually progressive lower extremity paresthesias, weakness, and ataxia as the primary presenting symptoms of pernicious anemia[] The paresthesias usually first occur in the lower extremities. At this early stage there might be no objective signs on the neurological examination.[] Peripheral Neuropathy The most frequent manifestations of peripheral neuropathy are paresthesias and numbness.[]

  • Meralgia Paresthetica

    It is second only to sciatica in peripheral nerve diseases of the lower extremity.[] We present two patients with classic symptoms of meralgia paresthetica and nonscarring alopecia overlying and demarcating the areas of paresthesias.[] Abstract Meralgia paresthetica has been described as a common affliction of the lateral femoral cutaneous nerve, creating the symptoms of numbness, tingling, and paresthesias[]

  • Lumbar Spondylosis

    OBJECTIVE: The aim of the study was to evaluate the efficacy and safety of transforaminal lumbar interbody fusion (TLIF) versus posterolateral fusion (PLF) in degenerative lumbar spondylosis. METHODS: A systematic literature review was performed to obtain randomized controlled trials (RCTs) and observational[…][]
