I just had the worst pins and needles in my life. I kept my foot in a weird spot for 3 minutes and I felt it, was weird. Couldn't move my toes at all, then I put it on the floor and it felt like it was melting.
So several times in the last couple months I’ve woken up and my arm was completely dead. No feeling at all and I couldn’t move it, it was like a sack of meat dangling from my shoulder. And it took like 10 min to reboot, and its always the same arm. What is that called?
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?
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.
