What Does It Mean To Waking Up With A Numb Hand
I'm 18 and I have foot and hand numbness or tingling half an hour each day, does that mean neuropathy? And is it diabetes? I'm too worried :(
22 yrd old f, history of migraines, new symptoms of left arm and hand numbness, blurry vision, & sharp head pain waking me up at night--is this bad?
I woke up with a numb hand/arm after accidently sleeping on it and now I have pain on my antecubital space & the forearm when straightening my arm.
2 times a night i wake up with a numb hand and tingling fingers, unless i sleep totally still on my back (impossible). Doc shoves it off. Ideas?
