Numb arm.. - October 28th 2011, 02:21 PM

So, the last week.. both my arms have been numb when I wake up and probs about an hour after waking up.. but mainly my right arm. It also looks swollen (right hand). My thinking is it's not getting enough blood flow to that area.. so I hang it over the bed and that usually helps, but only until I bring it up again. Also, throughout the day it get tired quicker and sometimes gets numb there too.

And this just started about a week ago.

What's going on with my arm

And please don't just tell me to go to the doctor. I plan on it.. but I'd like to hear input first.

Thanks!

Hi there Lynds!

Yup, you got it right. Your arms are not getting enough blood flow, or generally, your circulation might be hampered. Sometimes, just getting up and jumping about a little can help increase circulation. To improve your circulation, if that's it, then, you could just sit for a few minutes with your back straight, breathe in through one nostril holding the other and breathe out through the other nostril holding the first one closed.

Arm numbness could also mean a pinched nerve, so ya, you should get that checked out. Lol.

Tiredness could be maybe because you're working yourself out. It could be fatigue or something. I don't know your habits, but I'm just assuming.
If you're feeling really tired, then give yourself some rest, and don't overwork yourself, and get 7 hours of sleep a day. Hopefully it'll sort itself out.

Do let me know what the doc says.

Take care hun,
Kav.

Thanks for the input both of you

I don't go to school, but I lift a lot for my job.
It could very well be a pinched nerve. It sucks though. Lol

Do some kind of light exercise, to raise your blood pressure... something that will get the blood flowing. You could also get a light weight, like 1kg, and do some curls with it, or even just swing it about randomly if you feel like it, anything that gives your arm some movement. Don't swing it too violently though lol, it could worsen then.


"I don't care about politics"
Then politics doesn't care about you either. Truth. You've got to make your voice heard, if you want to be listened to. But that's too logical for some people, so let me go a step further. Not making your voice heard, leaves other people free to hijack it by speaking on your behalf, even if they don't actually give a shit about you. That's politics. So, make your voice heard. That's not a quote from anywhere. That's just me.
