Re: Very nervous about the numbness growing

Hi guyp, I think you are describing what I am experiencing. Where I had originally felt the tingling has recently turned numb and at times painful. I know...numb but painful sounds like a double edge sword but that's the best I can describe it. There are days that's it's worse than others and like others have said there is no rhyme or reason that we can explain. However, stress and anxiety seems to make it worse or more noticeable.

By all accounts, I am told it's completely normal. My neurologist says some ppl see improvement within 6 months to a year but each individual case is different. But I agree with you it is very un-nerving and wears on me...moving and the oh so slight touch is painful. I also have the hypersensitivity.

Don't give up on hope,
