Tingling sensations

I currently struggle with weird tingling sensations (unpleasant) in my arms and hands at the moment...my hands also tend to shake a bit. Anyone else who experiences this and any advice? #Fibromyalgia #tingling #tinglingsensations


How much do you push your body when in an effort to fight for mobility you can’t control the nerve pain or the muscle spacticity and spasms?

I’m living with chronic intense spine pain with nerve damage and muscle atrophy in my lower body. Just a few weeks ago I was in a wheelchair for eleven days straight and could not walk at all. I haven’t been able to do anything besides the bare basics of caring for myself and my pup. Yes, the bare basics. I’m not in a wheelchair right this minute but I cannot walk without my rollator or walker with my attached cane. It’s been that way for a long time now, years.

Anyway, I’m trying to walk (via walker) and track my steps, push myself a little more each day.

The pain, burning and numbness take over my body and I have to stop repeatedly to bend my spine forward and relieve the pain and pressure, ease the burning. It’s horrible and the pain sucks but still, I want my life back and I’m not going down without a whole lot more fighting (again). Yes, I’ve been living with chronic pain my entire adult life, so it’s been an ongoing battle for years.

The problem I’m having right now and daily is: when I’m pushing for mobility and trying to save my lower body (mid spine to feet) from being permanently paralyzed I’m fighting nerve damage that only relieves with ice for hours (mid to low spine and bum and hips) but muscle spasms that only relieve with heat (legs/feet).

Just exactly how much muscle spasms/spasticity is too much and how do I know if I’m pushing way too much or just not enough? I’m really not knowing and I know if I don’t keep fighting and just stay in whats comfortable and least painful I won’t be out of the wheelchair very long. Any tips, advice? I welcome them all please. This pain is making me a little bit nuts and I’m using ice and heat at the same time to combat the different parts and symptoms on my lower body. I’m exhausted and frustrated to say the least. #ChronicPain #FailedBackSurgery #Nervedamage #DDD #Osteoarthritis #spinestimulator #migratedleadwire #Exercise #Neuropathy #MuscleWasting #Tremors #numb #tingling #Burning #Spasticity #musclespasms #mobility #Fibromyalgia


Numbness & Tingling Hands w/Sleep #PeripheralNeuropathy

Last night I was woken up several times with my hands asleep and had numbness & tingling. Each time I woke them up by shaking them and then went back to sleep, my hands would fall asleep again and wake me up. Other times it’s been my foot & half my leg asleep waking me up in the middle of the night. Of course my hands & feet fall asleep other times too like when I have a heavy bag on my shoulder, every time I do yoga, cross my legs or even just having my boyfriend put his hand on top of mine. But does anyone else have their hands an/or feet fall asleep while they’re asleep? How do you deal with it? #PeripheralNeuropathy

#Anxiety #tingling Does anyone else experience facial tingling when they get very nervous? Thanks

In addition to anxiety I have TMJ ( cannot open my mouth wide so maybe the tingling has something to do with jaw muscles #TemporomandibularJointDisorders
