Hello. Symptoms are numbness in upper and lower arm. pins and needles in hand. very little use of hand and arm. I can touch and feel with the fingers. if I move around a lot I feel sick. If I stretch the arm it hurts at the middle. the upper arm will also ache. Diagnosis, proding the arm using stick/tool and saying if I could feel it or if it tingled.
I woke up realising I had slept on it and thought it was just pins and needles, until I realised it more serious. I cant drive, cook, ect I am unable to control direction of The lower part of the arm and wrist.
thank you. Should I contact my GP to discuss these options and be referred to hospital?
thank you. how do I get back to you after ive spoken to my GP?
I will be contacting my GP tomorrow, meanwhile should I be moving the hand/arm at all or completing relaxing it? thank you
Just bathing/washing hair is a huge effort and the arm aches afterwards.
I assuming this will be a long recovery. how can I take care of the rest of my body? I normally exercise 5 times a week.
What type of exercises can I do? my normal ones all seem to need the arm, crunches, planks, squats. thank you
I forgot to ask my GP if I can use Slender tone EMS for my abs, wasn't sure if this would affect my arm at all? Thank you
Great. thank you
