Tingling foot and arm

Hi! I have a question and I will try to add anything I think may be relevant here. I know that this is no substitute for a doctor but I am broke right now and this is worth a shot. I am 29 years old, relatively healthy, hypothyroid, and about 30lbs overweight. I have quite a few problems going on right now, I have spondylolisthesis of l5, several (5?) collapsed/bulging/herniated/and/or/dessicated discs, and some stenosis. Ok anyway, I went for a ten mile hike today, during the hike my left foot started getting that "pins and needles" feeling on the bottom. Now, hours after the hike my left arm has been hurting, from about the middle of my forearm down to my wrist it just aches, and my finger tips are tingling. Do you think it could be from my back? Why would it have started up right after the hike? And on the same side as my foot that was bothering me during? Any advice is appreciated. Thanks


  • You have several damaged discs which, in most cases, are the cause of pins and needles. And these symptoms can show up with no particular reason, just because of the fact that you already have damaged discs. It's like a house which was built on weak foundations (living with damaged discs): it's a matter of time when the house will collapse (when the symptoms will appear). Sorry for this corny example, but I hope you get the idea.
