Can numbness in my right arm and leg be caused from stress?

Posted by Mrs. V

I am 41 years old, and had a hip replacement last July. Can this numbness be caused from the surgery? It just started about 3 weeks ago, 6-7 months after the surgery. I have read that stress may cause it? Don't know where to go for help.

Hi Mrs.V,

It is difficult to say.

First I would  suggest that you check with Doctor to see if this is a normal side effect of your operation.

If It is not - Then I am wondering what emotional challenge or what negative thoughts have you entertained about 3 weeks ago.
