Hand numbness during sleep - sugar?
I've been reading a lot of discussions on here about hand numbness during sleep. I'm very fit and healthy and 30, female, and I've been waking up with numb hands for a few months now. I'm starting to look into it and I'm wondering if maybe it's sugar. It looks like it might be caused by low blood pressure or hormonal imbalance, both of which are caused directly by eating too much sugar, which I tend to do too much. I've been reading Nancy Appleton on sugar and it's making me consider trying to give it up for good. ANyway just a thought.

Good luck with the numb hands! Hope we can fix them for all of us.

I have had similar problems. I went on the Daniel fast for 21 days for other reasons but during it which includes No sugar  The problem went away.  My cholesterol also went down 31 points.  I really only missed cheese. I am thinking of doing a modified one with no sugar or red meats.

Thanks for posting- I'm having similar issues.  I'm a 33 year-old female in my second year of medical school, and about eight lbs overweight according to the BMI scale.  When I stay up late studying I crave (and eat) sugar.  I have been a sugar addict for as long as I can remember, but I know it's not good for me so I try to control my intake.  The numbness in my hands and arms while I sleep started probably a couple of years ago.  I have never correlated it with my sugar intake, but I've also never thought about their possible connection.  I'm going to stop eating sugar and see if my symptoms subside.
