Pins and needles in hands when waking up
I have had pins and needles for about three days in my right hand thumb and finger tips,and quite frankly it is doing my head in!!! i have possibly layed on my arm/wrist/hand during my sleep but i have no idea as i was asleep...tying my own wrists to the bed posts is not an option as i am currently single lol anyone got a better plan of how to solve my problem would love to hear from you many thanks ..Row
Your problem does sound like Carpal Tunnel Syndrome.
Back to the pins and needles when you wake up.
That was my problem for years but it now seems to have subsided. I didn't have any neck problems then and I do now but the pins and needles are definately not as bad.
As for getting it checked out with your G.P.!
I have been to 2 G.P.'s with this and they just ignored it, so absolutely no satisfaction there.
Any prolonged pins and needles and/or numbness....whether in the extremities (fingers, toes) or anywhere else deserves attention from your doctor as soon as possible. Although it is more than likely a 'signal' malfunction from the spine...and probably something 'small'...get it checked out straight away!
I have experience of this....and until you are all 'checked' out....which may mean M.R.I.s etc no one can tell you definitely.
Don't overly worry...but GO TO YOUR DOCTORS !!
I've heard of a guy a few years ago who had the nerve sheath op. He is a climber whose forearm muscles developed too rapidly for the other tissues (nerve sheath etc). THe op was a sucess and he is still an amazing climber !
