Foot numbness after steroid injection

I get intense shooting pains on the left side of my head, just above/around the ear, and I also have a very sore and stiff neck.
It sometimes feels like my heart beats irregularly and very hard.
I have dizzy spells and sometimes feel very foggy.
My legs and arms feel “weak”, not all the time, but frequently. My legs all the way up the thigh and down to my feet feels like they are tingling, the feeling you get just when your feet or legs fall asleep and then start to wake up, kind of an aching tingly feeling and it also feels like it hurts “inside the bones” in my legs.

There are a number of other causes of burning foot pain.  These include:

Alcoholism: Excessive alcohol intact can cause nerve damage resulting in burning pain in feet
Chronic Kidney Disease: Toxins may cause burning pain in feet
Hypothyroidism: Low levels of thyroid hormones can lead to swelling which places pressure on nerves resulting in burning foot pain, pins and needles and numbness
HIV/AIDS: Approximately one third of people with HIV/AIDS suffer from painful nerve damage
Vitamin Deficiency : A deficiency of vitamin B12 can cause burning pain in feet
Chemotherapy: Some types of chemotherapy cause a condition known as palmar-plantar erythrodysesthesia (aka hand-foot syndrome).  Common symptoms include swelling, redness and burning pain on the soles of the feet or palms of the hand and ulcers

Having a chronically numb foot is often a presenting symptom of a more serious underlying condition, and your doctor will often be prompted to think of all the various causes of such a symptom and perform diagnostic tests accordingly. This will most likely be done first with a brief history of the presenting symptom, ruling out any acute causes of having numbness in the foot, followed by a physical examination of the foot or feet in question. It will take the form of a range of motion test, nerve stimulation, vibration testing, and pain stimulation to get a good idea of the extent of the damage if present. Next, a series of diagnostic tests may be ordered, they may include the following, looking for clues to an underlying cause

Numbness in hand and in thumb and index finger after flu shot

few days after taking flu shot my left shoulder ,arm,hand,thumb and index fingers went numb and tingling and at night I can't lay on that side because of dull pain.

My finger are so stiff that I can't bend them very much. I had some discomfort in right side but very little and no numbness. It doesn't bother me during the day much. Hard to open bottle caps and etc. I have an appointment with my Dr in two weeks but trying to learn as much as I can.

Hello Joyce,
You should get to see your doctor much sooner. Whilst this severe reaction to the flu shot will probably pass, very occasionally it can have really severe repercussions.

Like Guillain Barre syndrome. It's most unlikely, but the numbness and weakness in your hand is worrying.

Scroll down: Tingling in arms and hands …

If your inability to open bottles is because of pain in the hand, I'd be less concerned. No pain, just numb and weak? See your doctor pronto.

Was is odd is that the numbness if following a classic C6 dermatome, suggestive of a pinched nerve in your neck. Any neck pain?

Go to Search this site … and type in Upper Limb Tension Test. Is your lower left arm much tighter, tingly, painful during the test than the right arm?

It's vaguely possible, unlikely, that this is quite unrelated to the flu shot. I can't see why the vaccine would affect only the C6 dermatome.

I would suggest you gently exercise the whole arm. Using that Search facillity you can find Frozen Shoulder exercises that would be suitable for the upper arm. You don't want to get a shoulder / arm problem from this shot.

Prick your fingers and arm and compare with the other arm. Look out for specific weakness. The triceps will often be affected by a pinched C6 nerve root. Does your left arm tire very quickly doing press ups?

Good luck, let me know how you get on.

This is known as Iatrogenic illness - doctor caused disease.

There are still many question marks surrounding vaccinations. We think they should only be used for serious diseases like polio. That's just my opinion, but I've had so many patients over the years react very badly to the flu shot.

Go from numbness in hand and in thumb and index finger after flu shot to other Chiropractic Conditions often treated…

I hope this has contributed. If so, this is my latest book of Chiropractic anecdotes, available on Amazon for $! Shameless! Stones in my Clog … Chiropractic anecdotes from the polders of Holland.
