  • Numbing sensation on arm lately

    Can anybody throw out ideas on what it could be? I thought about the possibilities:

    - I take 500mg magnesium 2x/week, on top of tons of chocolate and 1 bottle of sparkling water/day, and liberally salt my foods with pink Himilayan salt, so I don't think it's a mineral problem
    - I drink about 1.5-2L of liquids/day, so it's not dehydration? Although lately my pee has been yellower/smellier lately...
    - I easily eat over 5 lbs of red meat/week, 1-2 lbs fish/week, and 1/2-1lb liver/week, so it's not B-vitamins?
    - I eat at least 10 servings of dried seaweed/week, so it's not iodine.

    Help?

    Sounds like a pantothenic acid deficiency. Take a b complex. Also, yellow urine is a good thing.

      She said she eats over 5 lbs of red meat a week. It's almost impossible to be deficient in B5 at that level of intake, not including any other meats she may eat throughout the week.

      Just sayin'.

The metal in my head clangs and clings as I walk - freaks my balance out. So the natural thought is just clogged up. Totally clogged up. So we need to unplug these dams, and make the the natural flow... It sort of freaks me out. We need to unplug the dams. You cannot stop the natural flow of thought with a cling and a clang..."

        Not if she pisses it all out by drinking 67 oz of liquids a day

        Other than that, how is your calcium and carb intake, sakura_girl?

          Could be a Pinched nerve in shoulder or neck. Usually an easy fix for a chiropractor if that's what it is.

            Is it on your computer mouse side? Tense shoulder? Try switching mouse arms for awhile. That fixed my tingling arm trouble. Just a thought, could be wrong.

              Which arm is it? Left arm can be related to heart...
              "I think the basic anti-aging diet is also the best diet for prevention and treatment of diabetes, scleroderma, and the various "connective tissue diseases." This would emphasize high protein, low unsaturated fats, low iron, and high antioxidant consumption, with a moderate or low starch consumption.

              In practice, this means that a major part of the diet should be milk, cheese, eggs, shellfish, fruits and coconut oil, with vitamin E and salt as the safest supplements."

                Holy crap, you really have no concept of physiology, do you?

                I generally restrain myself from commenting on the various pseudo-medical/scientific drivel I encounter on this website, but the absolute conviction with which you provide a medical diagnosis WITH ABSOLUTELY NO INFORMATION and your absolute conviction that you're right combined with zero understanding of physiology is just mindblowing.

                  I'd recommend not jumping straight to a dietary hack. Rule out the more likely issues first.

                  Dinohunt and knifegill are on the right track. Assess the blood flow and check for neurological compromise first. But, seriously a numb extremity could be so many things that we have next to nothing to go on here. I really wouldn't even wanna guess without someone doing a physical exam...depending which arm you could even be talking heart, liver, or gall bladder referred pain, but....

                  How often does it occur? When does it occur (what makes it worse)? What makes it better once its there (shaking the arm)? Which arm is it and exactly which parts of the arm are affected? Any history of trauma/injury?.....

                    Definitely is my mouse arm, which is my right hand. It's been particularly bad these past few weeks. Coincidentally, I've also had more pressure put on me at work than any other time (more computer use) and I've gone off the deep end with D3 and Sc2....

                    What are the steps I can take to stretch it out? I try to move it around a lot like rotating it after using the computer, but it doesn't help much.

                      Also, I notice it the most when I've been sitting for a while. I don't know if it's numb while walking, since the improved blood circulation just feels like a bloating feeling in general. I feel the numbing the most after 3-4 hours of computer use, and it's persistent until I get off for a few hours, so I think knifegill hit in on the nail.

                        I honestly wasn't paying much attention last night. Intestinal inflammation, hypothyroidism, and a pantothenic acid deficiency could all cause continuous numbness, was probably my original thought(...and why I even posted that last part is beyond me), but her issue is likely nothing even serious that stretching, exercising, magnesium oil, etc would not fix.

                        Pantothenic acid deficiency is extremely rare anyway, and usually requires specific antagonists to even reach that.

                          Wow. I think it's a rotator cuff injury. I've noticed that it comes back mainly after I do OHP at the gym. going to lay off on those for several weeks...thank you again everyone for your responses!

                            How about not getting into a twist and just fucking tell her where she went wrong? You didn't even bother to do that.

                            Derpamix, your body only excretes excess B-vitamins, if she is lacking in a certain B vitamin, it will not be excreted.

                              It's cool, I deserved that reply, I was really messing around when I wrote in this topic initially.

                              Also, I know about the b vitamins! Thanks for your reply though, you're a cool cat.
