Pain/numbness in right leg and right arm-sometimes to right side of head

I have posted a few times before and am still having problems- back in Sept after working out at the gym the right side of my body went numb and weak from leg up to arm eventually to face- CT scan was normal then went to two neuros who both said nothing wrong with me per MRI MRA blood work ultrasound on calf-I am still experiencing a burning pain in right calf and up back of my thigh when sitting for periods of time- like when I drive or sit at my desk working- also inner elbow is extremely painful down the underside of the forearm - this is constant- every day- somedays worse than others -sometimes pain sometimes numb or dead weak feeling- I am not sure where to go from here- a Rheumatologist??Do you think it could be circulatory ? Sometimes it feels like my circulation is being cut off - any advice would be great- no one has suggested an EMG or cervical spine MRI yet- feeling on that ?? Thanx again for the help !!!

Although I cannot make a clinical diagnosis over the internet, its possible that you are pinching a nerve when you put pressure on your thigh or your elbow
An EMG might show abnormalities if they are severe or persistent enough - this test may be the next step in your evaluation - check with your neurologist
Good luck

Would this mean I am pinching one nerve that affects both my calf and my elbow?? Neuro I saw last said I would have to be pinching two or three different nerves- He said he thinks it's brain related but can't "measure" what it is- exact words " I can tell you what it is NOT but I can't tell you what it is" Gave me an anti inflammatory which did nothing to alleviate the pain or weakness- my arm gets very weak when I do something as simple as blow drying my hair- would I get an EMG on both the arm and the calf?? I did have an xray of my elbow which showed nothing - thanx again for this help ! I am getting very frustrated!

If it is a pinched nerve that is affecting the arm and leg then it would probably be in your neck area.  Have you tried a chiropractor to realign your spine?  Also, yoga type stretches help to stretch your entire body and keep the correct posture for your spine to stay in balance.
