Tingling / Numbness
Ever slept in a strange position, woken up with no feeling in your arm, and then had those oh-so-excruciating pins and needles as the numbness wore off? This kind of tingling and numbness is common and temporary, of course. But if you have this pins-and-needles sensation often, or you have numbness or weakness in your limbs—all for no particular reason—it could be a sign that something is amiss. Specifically, that the nerves that carry messages from your brain to your body are not working quite right, or that the nerves in your extremities might be damaged. This symptom is linked to peripheral neuropathy, which can be caused by traumatic injuries, many conditions (such as Lyme, diabetes, and lupus), vitamin deficiencies (particularly B vitamins, niacin, and vitamin E), exposure to toxins, and infections. With so many possible underlying causes, it’s a good idea to see a practitioner to help determine why you’re experiencing this distracting symptom. Unlike pins and needles you wake up with, you can’t just shake these off—much as you might like to! But you can try to figure out what’s causing them, and then work to treat the root of the problem.

does anyone have any recommendations for dealing with neuropathy? I’ve been having intense & increased nerve pain for the last few days, coupled with numbness, and I can’t seem to get much relief. I’m hoping to see my neurologist soon, but any recommendations in the meantime would be awesome. thanks!!
Feeling numb and empty. Feeling like life isn't real atm. Haven't felt like this in a while. ugh. I hate this feeling
Hi.. Any suggestions as to how I can stop watching the news and stop searching for anything related to the virus? I'm obsessed with always knowing the numbers, possible vaccine, treatment, symptoms... It's all I think about anymore.. I feel anxious all the time and if I'm not anxious, I feel like I might have it. 😢
at first, I really wasn’t too stressed about COVID-19, but the longer I’m home (mid-March thru now, with a 2 week stint at work in May) the worse my anxiety seems to get. the numbers are bad. everyone’s attitudes are bad. it’s all getting to me. I feel like I’ve let my coworkers down. I’m definitely a workaholic, but my family doesn’t feel safe being out in the world yet.
I was raped by my biological father that left my life when I was 10 and came back when I was 17 , moved back in when I was 18 and raped me a month after my 19th birthday. (literally a month) I’m numb , my relationship with my boyfriend is in shambles because I’m of my depression. my suicide thoughts . and my outrages actions that I can’t even explain . I just wanna heal, it’s been 5 months and I still can remember like it was yesterday. he ruined my life ,
