My 56 year old husband woke up yesterday complaining of numbness in his left arm & shoulder. Today he says it is now both arms with pain & numbness. 3 pm and left had is now noticeably swollen. Being Superbowl Sunday, I can't get him to do anything about it, but I am concerned as it is getting worse. If it were a result of sleeping wrong on it, it would be better now, not worse. Any ideas what could be causing this? No heavy lifting, or snow shoveling, so we cant think of an obvious reason for it.
His age and lack of exercise make me concerned. I fiture tho, if it were a stroke , it would have occured by now. (LOL).
Thanks for the imput.
