  • Pinched nerve? Are you on any medications that could cause this?

  • It has to be nerve related. Have you ever had an accident? Car accident? I think a scan will tell you what/where the problem is. GL!

  • not on any meds. Doctor said she didn't think it was a pinched nerve because that is usually localized or something like that.

  • I would get numb in my limbs and my nose when I had migraines, bt other than that no.
    Good luck.

  • I occasionally have numbness and tingling in my hands and feet related to my sjogrens. My flare ups of it are brought on by stress.

  • Raynaud's phenomenon/disease? I think that's what missanc is talking about; it occurs along with sjogren's sometimes.

  • I agree with mommy_jules but also could be some problems with your back. I have numbness in my hands from my cervical spine and leg numbness from my lumbar spine...but if that was the case you would probably know it.

  • I have numbness related to fibromyalgia and Sjogren's and also when migraines are coming on. Do you have pain or other symptoms besides numbness? Have you been tested for autoimmune diseases?
