Woke up in the middle of the night to my arm completely numb (happens a lot as I sleep in odd positions). Next evening, my arm was sore feeling. Can it cause damage when it "falls asleep" in the night?

Sometimes: What you describe is nerve compression perhaps related to odd sleeping position. The brain will generally make you move in order to relieve compression and therefore spare permanent damage. Sometimes those who are intoxicated or otherwise impaired may not have enough sense to relieve pressure and cause longer lasting or even permanent damage. ...Read more

I was talking a nap and awoke suddenly to the phone ringing. I sat up and my entire abdomen cramped up to the point of bringing me to my knees. Why?

I was talking a nap and awoke suddenly to the phone ringing. I sat up and my entire abdomen cramped up to the point of bringing me to my knees. Why?

Don't worry: A cramp is painful, but it can occur without reason. Your sleep interruption and jerking erect can cause a muscle pull. You may want to watch your bowel and bladder habits for a few days to see if there are other symptoms. If you have a history of abdominal surgery, take care if there is any spot of tenderness or bulge in the incision lines. ...Read more

I sometimes wake up and a soft lump seems to travel from the back of my throat to the middle of the roof of my mouth. I can feel it but it goes back?

It is probably uvula: It is probably the uvula that dangles from your palate off the reroof of your mouth. Sometimes it can get swollen or edematous and it feels strange when it touches the back of our tongue. Take a look in the mirror. If it appears large and swollen and is touching your tongue then you have your answer. Salt water gargles for several days can shrink it back down to outs normal size. If that does not work, then see your doctor. ...Read more

Was eating last night the food when the wrong stuck in the middle of stomach painful and in the back will it go away can I do anything to help?

Consider these...: Difficulty swallowing ("dysphagia") can be distinguished as a "transfer" problem (difficulty moving food from mouth to top of esophagus), "transit" problem (difficulty moving food down esophagus & in your case thru stomach), "spasm", gerd (due to sphincter problems), or obstructive (webs, rings, strictures, ulcer, tumor). Stuck food may need to be removed--call your doctor now how next to proceed. ...Read more

Is it normal to wake up in the middle of the night and can't go back to sleep when your pregnant ?

Yes: You don't have to be pregnant to have this problem either. If you've slept long enough that the body has met it's minimal need for sleep it will be much harder to fall back asleep. If you have things on your mind that you worry about, that will make it harder too. And if the baby is active or giving you discomfort, that will also make it hard. ...Read more

Pain in my left arm and left leg in the evening after work and after i get up in the morning. Feeling tired in the mornings. How can this go away?

1st Rule out angina!: I'd have your internist evaluate you for the possibility of angina. Sometimes the narrowing of coronary arteries, from whatever reason, can lead to ischemia of heart muscle and a diffuse, difficult-to-pinpoint, aching pain can radiate in this distribution. The risk of this goes up with a positive family history for heart disease, or if you have elevated cholesterol or triglyceride; then proceed... ...Read more
