I noticed your question about your hands falling asleep. I had the same problem, but I take one little pill every night before I go to bed for water retention, and the problem is solved. It is called spironolactone. My hands would swell up at night with water, causing them to fall asleep. Good luck!
Hi Richard,I have the very same problem with my hand.The very similer way I have to treat my hand to get out of the numbness.(dropping my hands off the bed)If you find any cure please let me know. Thanks.marie.
Just a quick note to say hi!
Read about your numbness symptoms and I am the same. I feel that it is low blood pressure for whatever cause. It is more prevalent now than it used to be. I wake up and my arm is numb. Takes a few minutes to 'thaw out' . Either I am lying on it or it is lying on my head or I have hold of it. Never used to be as bad, probably something to d owith my age (62). I am and always have been active. Maybe my diet is not very good, also I like a drink at night , which lowers blood pressure. I won't be getting too inebriated as a cook on the rig I work on lost his arm lately when he got stoned and fell asleep on it.
