    I have had the stinging, tingaling and numbing in my arms, Mainly my right one. It isn't any fun. My Rheumy said it's just part of this DD. She did find I had carpal tunnel in my right wrist. But couldn't tell me anything about the other arm besides it was part of this DD. My prayers will be with you. LOL DGH

    I have been experiencing numbness in my right arm. I have been for about 3 weeks now. I'm not sure if it is from FM or if i am getting carpel tunnel. My doctor gave me a brace to wear when i work and when i sleep. If it doesn't get better he wants me to have an EMG done on my arm, which involves needles.........eeekkkkk...........i hate needles.
    I do experience numbness also in my feet and sometimes my legs, but i think that is from my FM.

    I think there are two contributing factors in my case. First, like others who have contributed to this post, it is part of these DDs, not everyone gets this but enough for there to be a strong connection.

    Second I have awful problems with sections of my spine, including my neck which cause similar and additional symptoms/problems.

    Might be worth having an emg done , or seeing a chiropractor or osteopath.

    Cheers

    I have had the EMG done on my left arm before but no problems were seen. Have been having some problems with my neck lately might be the cause I will tell DR when i visit next week.
