My hands sometimes go to sleep but last night and this morning I can not get them to stop. Anyone have this problem. I'm on day 4 of my period. Not really bleeding now. It came on day 24 this month. My hands are driving me crazy right now. I'm gonna end up having a panic attack. I did order the book "the pause" like Andrea suggested.
i haven't had this, but my feet often go to sleep when i am sitting for a while. i was scared at first, but feel a lot better after reading the posts on this site. walking around fast gets my feet back to normal.
I had this problem. My father said it was from sagging muscles cutting off nerves and blood supply. He suggested lifting small weights to strengthen the sagging muscles. I bought two & three pound weights and used them while watching TV in the evenings. It worked along with trying to sleep with my arms down by my side instead of bent up by my chest. (When they were bent my arms would fall asleep every night) I am now advanced up to eight pound weights. I am not as dedicated as I should be because I would love to tone up the loose skin hanging under my arms.
No I'm not but I will. What is the best Magnesium to take?
YOu can take slow mag as Molly suggested on the board. You can get that at Walgreens, etc.
Or you can take magnesium by itself, but I would also take the calcium. Slow mag seems to be pretty good, Itake it. I still get the muscle twitches throughout my body and eye, but the sleepy feelings in your hands, I had that for awhile when I first started getting crazy with my periods and then I had horrible anxiety with panic attacks. But now it isn't bothering me anymore, just those jumping muscle twitches and eye twitch, drives me nuts.
Welcome to peri and anxiety. What a world!
Yes, I started having this and actually got so scared I went to the doctor. Nothing was wrong. Just a part of the whole menopause thing. Also, my hands fall asleep at night more than usual. I know it is normal to wake up with your hands feeling numb or "asleep" but this is far more severe - I really do think it is part of the menopause spectrum.
