    yes, I have just noticed in the past six months that I had the numbness in my arms its usually one or the other and its goes down into my hands , never had it before just another symptom to add to the list. It feels like pins and needles to me so you are not alone.

    My hands go numb. That's one reason I can't work right now, I'm a barber and I can't seem to find anyone who wants their barber to cut their hair with no feeling in their hands. LOL Oh and forget about strait razor shaves, hubby won't even let me near him anymore with my razor.

    They always go numb when I go to sleep, then when the feeling starts to come back, it feels as if I'm being electrocuted. *sigh* What a predicament!

    The left side of my left hand is completely numb. Doc says I have cubital tunnel syndrome, which is an impingement of the ulnar nerve that runs through the elbow. Ask your doc about that.

    Soft hugs!
