I got woke up my left arm numb like I had been sleeping on it all night but had not. It almost feels as if I have on a tourniquet . I feel fine other than the numbness won't reside. Should I be worried

The same exact thing has been happening to me.. no meds, no prior conditions. It’s been at least a month now, and it does seem to go away when I wake up, but will occasionally come and go during day time. Majority of episodes are from evenings/nights.

Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to EmpowHER. Thank you for reaching out to our community.

Do you experience the numbness only in the morning upon waking up?
How long has this been going on?
Does the numbness go away as you move about?
Do you have any medical conditions or take any medications?
