Weird numbness

Today I have had some really odd symptoms that I used to put down to migraine, but I now think that they are fibro related. I woke with no feeling in my right hand, elebow and upper arm and with limited sight in my right eye. This cleared after an hour or so, but I am left utterly exhausted and with a bit of a heavy head. Does anyone else experience this at all?

Hi CraftyTeacher

I am so genuinely sorry to read this my friend and although it could be Fibro related I agree with Daddysgirl113 that it should be checked out just to have other medical conditions ruled out of the equation. I want to sincerely wish you all the best of luck and please take care of yourself my friend.

All my hopes and dreams for you

Ken

I think anything that alters your vision needs checking. Could be something as simple as crushing a nerve while you sleep but best to get it checked.

Not really - It sounds like to me you need to get to the doc... immediately... Not to scare you, but those would frighten me..

Thank you all for your responses. I am going to contact the GP. Wether I can get an appointment is a completely different thing...

I have pins and needles in my hands. Mine is a neurology problem.

Good luck with your GP.
