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

I thought the nerves physically get squished, and they send garbled messages back to your brain which equates to the pins and needles feeling? no?

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

In Denmark we describe it as my leg or my arm "is sleeping". Oh, and hitting the funny bone is usually called "getting stunned" or "getting a shock up/down through my arm" or "my leg"

Friendly reminder that if you ever are in a situation where you have to stand for a long period of time, don’t lock your knees. The restriction of your blood flow can make you pass out.

So... If that's what's happening to my arm/leg/hand/foot... Why does continuously waving the unfortunate limb around make that feeling go away?

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.

how I fix this problem when my small finger falls asleep from not using it to type is dunk it in some cold water. Usually works.

i have a question for a video: Why does that area right below your ear sometimes hurt when you chew something or smile?
Travis Negrete (10 месяцев назад)
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?

I was sleeping in a car using my arm as a pillow. My arm was bent with my hand supporting my head and my elbow on the arm rest. I did this for 1 hour and my arm was numb for a LONG time.

What if you really like the feeling of pins and needles? Can you cause serious damage if you intentionally trigger it somewhat regularly?

Who else got paresthesia watching this while sitting on a toilet in the thinker position
light564 (11 месяцев назад)
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
Scarlet Peoni (11 месяцев назад)
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. Anyone similar?
