Hey guys I know most of us has had arm or leg or hand and finger numbness. But for the last few weeks it feels like my left arm is being squeezed. Has anyone encountered this? It feels like my circulation is being cut off in my arm. Lasts for about 30 seconds and then it's gone. I get it through out the day. Just wondering if anyone else had gotten this type of feeling, Thanks.

Debra

Debra,

Yes! This is the worst feeling! I get it mostly in my left arm and hand but in my other arm and sometimes legs and feet. It is horrible. Today I had to stay home it was so painful. It is helpful to know someone else feels this too. No one else understands.

Yes I think I know exactly what you mean. I get this feeling in my forearms, legs and feet at night sometimes, and it drives me crazy! It's the most uncomforatable feeling. I feel like massaging them to get circulation going.

I also get that periodically. Mostly in my legs and feet, but have gotten in my arms as well. Just another goofy thing we get to deal with!

I get this too. It feels like when you have your blood pressure taken. I think it has something to do with the lyme inflamatory issue. Mine gets worse at night as well.
