My anatomy and physiology professor had the best way of describing this, a kinked hose where the pressure is finally released. She had us actually sit on one of our feet for several minutes and had us all stand up and attempt to walk around. Incredibly hilarious woman and a fantastic professor
Once had to sit on the floor as part of a school assembly, because of the cramped seating my leg went dead but I couldn't move to release it - and then I had to walk and my foot was visibly unresponsive and heavy; not great
STORY BOUT MY LITTLE FINGER
(for the people who do/do not care :))
just a couple minutes ago my left hand got pins and needles and my little finger went proper NUMB. no tingles, just numb. I felt that finger with my right hand and I couldn't feel myself pinching it. instead of me feeling like I was touching my finger it felt like I was touching a rubber sausage or something. I'd wiggle that left little finger with my right hand and it was so weird. I gotta admit I also bit my finger and I bit harder and harder and them suddenly I felt it, but still it was weird.
I had arm surgery that damaged my ulnar nerve so I have partial numbness in my arm. When I hit my funny bone, after the pins and needles goes away my nerve damage is more severe and wide spread in that arm for a few hours before returning to normal. Normally only the back side of my arm is numb but when I hit my funny bone even the back side of my hand gets numb, really scary! Why is this?
Forgot one more thing, while you're standing up rub your legs or the affected area in a downward motion Or if it's the arm rub It gently so that you're going towards your hand. You'll notice a cold sensation and the feeling will return faster. Also you can have that pens and needles feeling when you lose all feeling in your appendages because you're cold
I'm confused, I've been diagnosed with CPTSD but have also been diagnosed with spinal nerve compression, bulging disk and b12/iron/vitamin D absorption problems as well as reflux and in the past has surgery on colon which is when my mental health changed drastically, very difficult to pinpoint which is what. Recently I've felt very panicked about my future because of some relationship and housing and work issues but also was sat working for a couple of days with limited movement, so hard to pinpoint if mental health is setting this off or stillness. I feel extremely stiff the more I've exercised and tickling sensation underneath the skin near my spine but now it's all over my body if I sit for longer than a minute which is difficult when you need the toilet or to sit at a laptop.
During night I felt pain in my right eyebrow and it was strong, felt like needles, and I just tossed and turned until I realized it was too painful and it wouldn't go away so got up from bed and it slowly went away. I felt a little pain in between my eyebrow and my nose and it comes and goes. I don't know if I should take this seriously. It didn't feel like when a leg gets numb and tingly, people think that's what I mean, it felt like straight up needles.
There was one time where I woke up in the middle of the night and my arm was so stiff. I tried to move it but it hurt so much and it felt like something was keeping my elbow from moving like the hinge it should've been. I managed to work out the problem but it left my arm real sore
The class of drugs that Levitra, Viagra, Stendra, and Cialis belong to are called PDE5 inhibitors. They work by relaxing tight blood vessels, allowing more blood to surge into the penis and cause an erection, says Gregory Bales, M.D., an associate professor of urology at the University of Chicago.
The little pills do the trick for more than two-thirds of men with Viagra protects the heart (ED). They also work for guys who simply need them for a short time to get their “confidence back,” says Michael Eisenberg, M.D., director of male reproductive medicine and surgery at Stanford University.
