Numbness Arms

Numbness Arms

Has anyone woke up with pain in middle of back and arms numb or occasional its fingers. It has been worrying me a lot more lately. Having more and more nerve pain. Sometimes I wonder if its something then fibro.

I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia for the past 20 years but found out in Oct that I actually have Lyme disease.
Especially if you are having any neurological symptoms (I have peripheral neuropathy in my feet, and blurry vision) you should get tested for Lyme infection. Contrary to what the government wants you to think, Lyme is all over the US (lower 48) and Europe. I lived in AZ when I was bit by the tick and I even had the classic bullseye rash (50% dont ) and still it was missed by the doctors.
If you decide to get tested, only use iGeneX lab in Palo Alto Calif. Don't have the ELISA test done (very inaccurate) get the Basic Lyme Panel (Western Blots IgM IgG and IFA) and it is only $275. Very much worth knowing if you have Lyme, which is treatable, although not easy. You can contact iGeneX lab and they send the blood tubes to you, a local lab can draw the blood and spin the tube for a small fee (mine charged $32) and you need a doctor to sign the order form. And you mail it back
Feel free to contact me if you need more info.

I experience numbness in fingers, arms, legs, and my toes. When it's my legs and feet I try not to walk around much. I haven't found anything that relieves it.

I had the same problem. Turn out to be a ruptured disc in my neck. A bone was pressing the nerves that went down my arm. Talk to your physician about a MRI.

sometimes I wake up and my arm is "dead" I cannot move it at all, cant lift it up...just strange. it takes 10 minutes or so and slowy it starts again but it is scarey!! I also wonder if I have sommething other than fibro, I feel they only go so far trying to figure it out and then throw you into the fibro trash bin, from there on out you can have alot of trouble getting someone to listen, really listen. I know that what ever this is is slowly going to kill me...it is progressively worse and no one seems to care.
