Right arm tingling when I have the urge for bowel movement

Hello everyone,

I have been diagnosed with mild gastritis and chronic esophagitis. Recently I've started to experience my right arm tingling when I have to pass bowel movement. Has anyone else experienced this? Normally once the I pass the bowel movement it goes back to normal.

Hi!  So, tingling like that has sometimes been linked to celiac disease.  I, of course, don't know that to be the case with you but I would talk to your doctor about it.  https://www.cureceliacdisease.org/wp-content/uploads/0410CeliacCtr_News.pdf  

What other symptoms do you have?  Here's an overview of celiac disease to see if anything going on with you matches.  https://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/celiac-disease/symptoms-causes/syc-20352220

Let me know what you think!
