Hi - my wife gets a numbness in her arm when sleeping. Usually OK rest of day. Also occaisionally she complians of fogginess in vision in right eye for brief period which goes away with blinking. Monthly cycles are irregular. She is a thyroid patient. Eye doctor said eyes are OK. And gyne test came out OK (full check up include culture test). Evaluating whether to go in for neuro.
both symptoms can be attributed to poor circulation. when she is sleeping she may be laying in a way that limits blood flow to her right side, if she does not believe that this is the case i would see a nero cause it could also be a symptom of a tumor or brain anurism. hope all goes well best luck
