body parts falling asleep/going numb

i had decompression in aug. just recently in the past week and a half i noticed tingling in my hands alot. like now typing. if i am talking on the phone whichever hand holding the phone falls asleep or goes numb after a few moments. sometimes at night my arms fall asleep and im not even laying on them. and what ever side i sleep on, usually the right side, its hard for me to sleep on back or left side. i wake up and my neck hurts to move so when i go to lift it with my hands i realize my right arm is sleeping and hurts and also my right leg. anyone out there that can give me info is greatly appreciated. i told my ns tues and they just blew me off. didnt even answer if its due to chiari. this never really happened before my surgery unless i was layin on my arm or once in a great while its normal. now its happening frequently.

   Hi, it seems u have some post op issues and I am not sure if u r going to get answers from ur surgeon.

U may need to go to another NS that is well experienced with chiari to get the answers u r not getting from ur other Dr.

  But, it could be the nerves beginning to work again that were not working properly b4....when u heal they can mis fire or over work and cause many odd sensations. This is normal....and will happen especially around the 2 or 3 month time frame post op....it does get better with time, however , if it doesn't ur Dr should be able to offer suggestions, and should be able to tell u what is going on.

   Try to relax
