chronic numbness on one side of the body

I have since my early teens, suffered from chronic numbness made worse by physical activity one one side of my body. Being left handed, it has confounded every specialist I have seen as to what is causing it, especially since the weakness occurs on my dominant side of my body. It does not fit in with any type of autism that I have been diagnosed with. Anyone, have a similar condition?

Hi Looking,

I haven't come across any information that relates to the numbness you are experiencing that ties into Autism.

I would recommend seeing a neurologist, if you haven't already. You don't mention what type of specialists you have seen.

Also, I would encourage you to ask your question on our Neurology - General Neurology Questions and Support Community. The community there is familiar with many different neurological symptoms and will be able to offer support as well.

Good luck! Please come back and let us know how you're doing and to share anything you found out.
