left arm numb, blackouts, nosebleeds.. can stress cause this
    #3121347 - 09/11/04 04:46 AM (12 years, 3 months ago)

I dont know what is up with my body. twice in the past couple weeks my left arm has gone numb and tingled. Other limbs lose circulation randomly. I was at the vets with my cat and started to get lightheaded.. then saw spots, then went white.. so i sat down, then i had to lay down.. my nose is spontaneously bleeding.. i can't stay awake more than a few hours without a nap, i'm thinking my heart's getting fucked up.. quite the cigs mostly, started running in this lsat week.. I'm hoping its just stress from numerous points in my life and homelife. I'm feeling pretty fuckedup, going to the docs i think maybe next week. wtf. i just turned 20 i shouldn't be falling apart yet. I can't handle health problems now, :|. who do i ask for a refund, jesus?

numb left arms and blackouts are SERIOUS indicators of heart problems, sometimes even warnings, of heart attacks! i'm not saying you're gonna have one, but damn - maybe you need a physical.

i'm no doctor, but that all seems like a weakened heart and/or poor circulation to me..

maybe you should cut that running to longer, brisk paced walking. when's the last time you had some red meat? how's the iron in your diet...are you getting enough? just typing what comes to mind.

This is all caused by stress yes! When a part of yor body is out of whack, you start to stress about it. Causing more stress and tension, which then causes restriction of bloodflow. When at school I guess I suffered from social anxiety or something of the sorts. Same things would happen. Once I learned to let go of this "stress" and after I graduated all was well.

Does your neck hurt at all? My problems came from a bad neck. See I would crack my neck to try and releave the tension. But all this would do is infuriate that muscle. That muscle would constrict a blood vessel that would run up my arm into my neck then it would run around my ear into my templ where it would then go to my eye. When the blood gets all built up in this vessel it would put preasure on my eye nerves n wahtnot. Causing the same visual problems.

I've always had a bad neck.. it cracks alot. can't get an appointment till like wednsday unless something opens up. I've been diagnosed with hypotension years and years ago, but never had my limbs go numb from that, and that was when I was on meds and abusing alot of opiods, which neither is a part of my life now. I think i'm going to keep going on runs, I'm pretty fit and if its a circulation thing, running is going to help. I'm slowly trying to eliminate the stress in my life, but as soon as I deal with one issue, another one takes its place.. all issues that are out of my control like health of loved ones etc. I think i'm coming to a new point though.. basically this whole year has been a consistant beating of worst case scenerios being realized, stress has kind of won, I have kinda lost any kind of focus or sanity.. so i know thats what I need to find the most. I'm just hoping for a window of tranquility so i can try to get my shit together. and yeah, doctor next week for sure.. they'll probably just tell me I've got hypotension again.

white spots are a sign your eye or brain is not receiving enough blood/oxygen. With your other circulatory problems I nsuggest you see a doctor right away.

I had similar issues, and it turned out to be stressed combined with abnormally low blood pressure.

tingling is a sign of bad circulation, and as mnd said, white spots can be a sign of bad flow through the brain. It can also be a result of trauma (like a blow to the lower back of your head).

Go to a doc, definately.

Go to the doctor. Smoking never helps either.

I cut cigs back, I go in to the doc soon. I'm not worried about it too much now, running has been helping, just smoking a bit of weed now and then. Stress is minimal, I've gotten alot of shit I had to do taken care of and the state is done raping my bank account until december rolls around.

i'd go for walks rather then running. if you do have heart problems or something, running would be much more stressful i think. go for a nice relaxing walk

I am not a fan of doctors. I think a lot of physical pain and physical problems arise from past traumas and expieriences. The thing is to letgo of the thought patters associated with the ailgment. I noticed it to work in my life. Granted not all people are the same and not all issues are like my own.

I had the same things happen to me, minus the nose bleeds and all it was caused by was a pinched nerve in my head/neck/back...I'd go see a doctor all the same, but if the doc can't find anything wrong check out a chiropracter.
