My usual posts concern my lumber spine and sacrioilic joint pain but I've now developed something new.
I used to sleep OK and that was my emotional haven but for the last 4/5 weeks I've been having increasing discomfort at night. The pain is pins and needles in my hands and tingling and aching in my upper arms combined with a numbness, burning sensation. It wakes me up and I change sides. The pain goes away then a couple of hours later starts again on the side I'm lying on. And so on. I've tried using pillows to rest my arms on and doing stretching exercises for my hands and arms during the day. Having been one who looked forward to bed as a relief from the back pain I now dread going to sleep. I've always had the waking up with a sense of dread and fear well ever since my back pain became bad but I'd learnt to deal with it. Now I have it several times a night and no joy in going to bed.
What's happening to me ? I was starting to accept and deal with the pain I had ( well mostly) but this is just knocking me back.
