  • You need to call 911 it could very well be a heart attack. Are you sick or pregnant?

  • I had a shot today in my epesiotomy site... I'm only 20 and I feel fine, it's just my legs and left arm buggin me. Could it really be that serious?

  • You had a shot in your epi. site? Why and What was it? When did the symptoms start? Are you short of breath? Dizzy? Lightheaded? Or is it just tingling and numbness on your limbs?
    It could just be pressure on a nerve in your spine, which can cause tingling and numbness in your extremeties. The sweating could be anxiety or a a reaction to the shot they gave you. Put a call out to the MD that gave you the shot. They will have an oncall MD that can advise you!
    Good luck.

  • Call 911! Better to grossly over react then pay the price.

  • The sweating and left arm could be heart attack signs. I agree with the above to get to the ER.
