Last night I kept waking up with my arms tingling, numb and full of pins and needles. They were so numb at times that my fingers curled in as if paralyzed. Right now I can feel the tingles going down my shoulders into the back of my arms and into my pinky and ring fingers on my left side and into the back of my thumb and index finger on my right. This is taking forever to type. The last time I had this symtom to this extent was 4 years ago after the birth of my daughter. At the time my Mom said it was the weight of my chest pulling down my bra straps and cutting off circulation. But I was sleeping and I am not nursing right now. It is just happening. I just want to crawl into bed the rest of the day and hide. But....there is too much to do. I thought I was depressed because of my frustration with the illness. However, maybe the illness is causeing the drepression.. I suppose I should tell my Dr. but, he already acts like I'm exagerating things. ARGHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!
