Tingling Sensations after a Truck Collision Are Not Normal
Were you in an Arkansas truck collision and felt like you walked away from the whole ordeal pretty unscathed? We often meet people like this who think they are pretty lucky, but then they start to feel weird, tingling sensations in their limbs. You know, that kind of pins-and-needles feeling that almost makes you feel numb. They assume it's nothing because it doesn't necessarily hurt, it's just annoying and inconvenient. If this describes what you're currently feeling after your accident, you need to see a doctor right away. That tingling may be the sign of something much more serious.
What's causing the tingling in your legs, arms, or groin? It could be one of quite a few things, including nerve damage, a pelvic fracture, or any type of back, spine, or vertebrae injury. Sometimes the tingling is a signal that there is internal bleeding going on or damage to the internal organs has occurred. Just because you look OK on the outside after an accident, doesn't mean you are on the inside. These are sometimes the most scary type of injuries because they go untreated for too long and develop into more serious, sometimes untreatable, conditions.
Whether or not you are experiencing tingling, we highly recommend that you visit a doctor after a truck accident. Your health should always be your main priority, and by taking the right steps from the get-go, you may be able to build a more solid trucking collision case.
