Hey, does anyone know what this could be?

Hello, I am Kaylee and I am 17.  In November last year, I had what I would call a funny turn. I was in a museum when I suddenly started to get numbness and tingling in my right food, I thought it was just pins and needles but it lasted for a while and moved up my leg through my body, face lips and tounge then down my arm to my fingers each part of my body it went to, it was there for longer than five minutes, and now i get headaces and feel week alot it has happened once since then in January this year, has anyone got any ideas on what it could be? (it has only happened in my right side)

Have you been worked up by a neurologist? Please read some of my posts, I have some of the same issues going on.

Could be any number of reasons - talk to your doctor. It's only happened once so it could just be a nerve thing.

An ECG is for your heart.  Did you mean EEG?  Which checks for seizure activity or EEG which is for nerves.

An EEG cheaks for seizure activeity in the brain the doc will put a ton of sencers on you head ( does nothing for your hair) then you've got to sit there for like 2 hours ansering questions and then they flash a light really fast trying to induece a seizure.

Ooops sorry, I had wires on my head and got lights flashed at me, which is the EEG and I have went in a machine which your brain gets scanned. Yes I was picking the glue out for days lol.

Have you been eating right? I got that alot when i was younger because i wouldnt hardly eat. tingling is because of sugar problems. There can be alot of things maybe you are lacking also. Like vitamin B.
