My Hands And Feet Have Been Going Numb Very Easily Lately What Could It Be
Possible neuropathy: You may possess a mild developing peripheral neuropathy, but you may also have a hereditary sensitivity to pressure palsies, which means transient compression of nerves by certain positions like leaning elbow or crossing legs. There are other possibilities, but the intermittent symptoms suggest a benign condition. Have your doctor assess and examine.
Why do my hands and feet get numb easily. I just need to lie in bed or sit on a chair a minute later they are numb?
Nerves: Numbness is caused by nerves being irritated or pinched. These nerves can be pinched in the periphery, such as at the wrist or ankle, or they can pinched as they exit the spine. With both upper and lower extremities having consistent symptoms I would recommend evaluation by a health professional to rule out a general nerve health problem called polyneuropathy.See 1 more doctor answer

See a neurologist: Although your condition could be benign the length of time it's going on is of concern to me. There are many possible causes of your problem ranging from actual nerve damage to nutritional deficiencies, diabetes, and hypothyroidism. These and others must be ruled out. You should have a complete history and exam by a neurologist. Please have this done as soon as possible.

Possible raynaud's: Raynaud's disease is a condition that causes some areas of your body — such as your fingers, toes, the tip of your nose and your ears — to feel numb and cool in response to cold temperatures or stress. In raynaud's disease, smaller arteries that supply blood to your skin narrow, limiting blood circulation to affected areas.
Few causes: A systemic disease like diabetes. Side effects of certain medications or chemotherapy treatments. One can have carpal tunnel in the hands and tarsal tunnel in the feet. There can be herniated discs in the spine irritating the nerves to the distal extremites. This is a condition that warrants a doctor's visit.See 1 more doctor answer
Pinched nerves: The nerves exit the spinal column and go to your hands and feet. Imagine that a nerve is like a water hose. If you step on it, then less water comes out. Someplace along the way, you are pinching nerves and when you stop exercising, you take the pressure off the nerves.

Have it evaluated.: Topical capsaicin may be helpful for some, while others may benefit with oral medication such as Pregabalin (lyrica), Amitriptyline (elavil), duloxetine (cymbalta), Gabapentin (neurontin), Carbamazepine (tegretol), or valproate (depakote) to reduce the painful symptoms in the feet due to neuropathy.
