Hi, glad blood work came back okay. The numbness still bothers me. By any chance have you had any unusual insect bites/stings? The reason I ask is because about 5 years ago I had a strange reaction to a bite. I was climbing onto the tractor and something ran up my left arm and bit/stung me on the elbow. I wasn't really concerned, just had a whelp pop up, but no pain. After bushhogging for about an hour the left side of my face starting feeling funny, kind of numb or swollen. A few minutes later my left arm and leg both began to feel the same way, my leg was visibly swollen. I started getting kind of worried, so I called a friend who was babysitting for a doctor (how handy), the doctors first reaction was that the bite had somehow hit a nerve and wanted me to go to the ER, I had no insurance and refused to go. Next morning everything seems fine. Never told another doctor about it even after getting insurance, to this day I still have bouts of numbness/swelling/weakness in my face and arm. Never figured it out. The bite took forever to heal. Take time and check yourself over for a bite, think back, do you remember being bitten by anything. Research insect bites/stings abd see if any of them fit your symptoms. Even though you aren't a diabetic, keep in touch and let us know what's going on.

Thanks MM. The only insect bite I'm aware of are a few chigger bites I got fishing the other day. Never had any kind of reacton before. I'll do some research on it though. If I do sort this out I'll let you know what I found out. Thanks
