Can you tell me about getting numb hands and feet after taking a shower or know what this may be?

Unusual: It would be unusual to experience this in a warm shower as this would bring more blood to your hands/feet. So if doing cold showers: stop. It may be what is called small vessel disease (pad), may be related to a collagen vascular disease and there are a few. Look them up. See internist who will start with blood work. ...Read more

I wake every day with numb hands and feet. Then it changes to pins and needles, then the feeling comes back. Should I have this checked?

I wake every day with numb hands and feet. Then it changes to pins and needles, then the feeling comes back. Should I have this checked?

If never checked-yes: If these symptoms've never been looked at by a doctor then, I think having a work up to check for some simple things makes perfect sense. Gives you a chance to say hello to a doctor who you probably haven't seen in awhile which is good once in a while, even for a youngster of 32! LOL.....maybe a little bloodwork just to be sure everything's good (Vit. B12, D, folate, (folic acid) thyroids, etc). Cheers! ...Read more
