i hope you’re bearing up.
I just wanted to write this post to give you an update on my 2 year investigation on why both my hands go fully numb at night.
I’ve had numb hands every night for the last 2 years. About 18 months ago I went to see a specialist who diagnosed mild carpal tunnel syndrome. I was told it was so mild I didn’t need treatment but it was likely the cause.
With a lot of research in that time and on a lot of advice by GPs I’ve realised it’s not Carpal Tunnel. My MS Nurse wants me to rule it out so I’m going back to see the hand surgeon again! Apparently Carpal Tunnel only causes numbness in part of the hand.
It’s so frustrating as my hands go completely numb, and tingling in my hands was my first MS symptom.
I’m at the end of my tether with it all. I can’t sleep because my numb hands wake me up all night.
I’d be interested to hear from anyone else going through the same thing.
I’ll let you know how I get on with the specialist.
