I’m a 36 year old woman. For the last few years I’ve had periodic bouts of tingling / mild shooting pains in my arms and hands, and heel pain (without having had a heavy day on my feet). For the last few months, I’ve also had what Google tells me is “post-void dribbling”; ie I go for a wee and when I stand up I dribble a bit, no matter how careful I am, and how sure I am that I’ve finished. I have to hold some loo roll between my legs when I stand up, to avoid a drip or two running down my leg.
I think the tingling could easily be a touch of carpal tunnel could it not? And very possibly it could be a back problem, or sciatica or something, that’s causing the pain in my feet. Nevertheless, I have a nagging worry.
The symptoms seem mild really, if I’m honest, and as I said, they’re only periodic, so I’m a bit embarrassed to go to my GP.
What do you think?
