I have read a lot about paresthesia but nothing specifically about direct heat causing symptoms. I have been experiencing a tingling or numbness and delayed sensation when i put my hands in hot water - like when I wash up. The feeling lasts for 5-10 seconds after the heat is removed - about as long as it takes to restore normal body heat. I also have numbness in my arms and hands, and also in my face around my mouth and lips. Ive also had strange feelings in my lips when eating heated food - like I've been eating spicy food.
Does anyone else have symptoms like this, particularly those triggered by direct heat?
My history - 43yo Caucasian female. symptoms have been occuring for - at least - 2 years but I have history occuring up to 5 years ago. The heat issue above only started 4 months ago. I have seen a neurologist and had 2 MRIs in the past 18 months. I have 17 lesions on my brain but the neurologist noted that there were no changes between the 2 MRIs and feels that the lesions could have other origins (I dont agree). I have had a lumber punch which did not show any abnormalities. Neuro has suggested another MRI in 6 months, and another 12 months if that shows nothing.
I am getting a second opinion - is there anything I should ask?
