For the past 2 months, every time I take a nap or go to sleep, I wake up with anywhere from moderate to SEVERE numbeness/tingling in my left arm, and sometimes my right as well. Sometimes both arms and hands are completely numb. It often takes 15 mins or so for the feeling to come back, and sometimes upwards of an hour or two to feel normal and relaxed again.
I have had a major problem with gas, bloat, belch, for the past 8 years of my life. Anything I eat; even fruit, vegetables, raw vegetable juice, steamed veggies, meat, no matter what it is, I start burping like a maniac 45 mins to 2 hours after I eat it. I used to think it was only carbs, but I went on a carb free diet, no good. Went on every version of the raw food diet imaginable, blood type diet, paleo diet, etc. My gas won't go away.
I have been able to live with the gas for the past 8 years, but I cannot live with this numbness/tingling in my left arm EVERY SINGLE time I wake up from a nap or a night of sleep. If I can go a whole night of sleeping all the way through without being woken up by it, I'm amazed. Yes, it's gotten so bad, that it wakes me up out of my sleep. Completely numb in one arm, and a lot of the time, both arms.
Usually when I get up and start walking around, I start burping like crazy. Even if I go to bed without having eaten in 6 hours, it still happens. I did a 3 day green juice fast and it still happened!
I'm posting here because I've run out of ideas. I went to the Emergency Room a month ago, when I woke up one night at 3 am and had trouble breathing, and my left arm was totally numb. My blood work came back fine, heart was great, blood pressure was excellent. I'm only 27 years old and I feel like I'm 77.
Hello - I just copied the ENTIRE symptoms page from the website. PLEASE read it and pay close attention to the MUSCLE & JOINT section as well as the STOMACH & INTESTINAL Complaint section. I hope this information helps you.
HOW & WHY PARASITES MAKE US SICK
Before you read over the following list of symptoms, you need to understand how and why parasites make us sick. Parasites are the HIDDEN DISEASE, they can occur anywhere in the body, in every organ, in all tissues, and in the blood. Parasites can cause problems that mimic other disorders and are not diagnosed as being parasite related. Not only do they cause harm by taking nutrients away from their host, they also produce toxic waste (from their excrement and death cycles) that affects the human body including the central nervous system. For example: Parasite urine is pure ammonia! If you nor your doctor can't figure out why you’re not feeling 100%, then please continue to read!! This is the official website of The United States Department of Health and Human Services CENTER FOR DISEASE CONTROL - here you can read about MANY symptoms of parasite infections.
STOMACH & INTESTINAL COMPLICATIONS – The sheer number of parasites in the lower digestive system and the toxic waste produced by them can cause these problems:
Gas & Bloating
Excessive Early Bowel Movements
Mucus in the Stools
Burning in the Stomach
FATIGUE - The toxic metabolic waste overloads and overworks the organs of elimination and taxes the central nervous system causing:
Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
SKIN DISORDERS & ALLERGIES – Parasites that penetrate the skin cause itching. When tissue becomes inflamed from these parasites, the body’s white blood cells increase to defend the body. This reaction causes skin rashes and food allergies to appear. Parasites also create toxins and the skin, being the largest organ, tries to remove these toxins which causes many skin problems. Symptoms include:
Allergic Reactions to Food
Crawling Sensation Under the Skin
MOOD & ANXIETY PROBLEMS – Once again, it’s the toxic metabolic waste produced by the parasites that attack the central nervous system causing:
SLEEP DISTURBANCES – The physical presence of the parasites themselves are a nuisance to the human body. The body reacts to them during periods of rest, this in turn produces:
Teeth Grinding During Sleep
Drooling While Asleep
Disturbed Sleep – Multiple Awakenings
WEIGHT & APPETITE PROBLEMS – Parasites live undetected by their hosts. They rob the body of all essential nutrients (they get the choicest nutrition from the food you eat) and you are left with the fats, sugars, etc. Many overweight persons are infested with parasites, they stay hungry which leads to overeating because of the parasites. Depending on the type of parasite infestation, many people are malnourished, they can’t gain weight, again, because of the parasites. This is why parasites cause:
Loss of Appetite OR
Uncontrollable Hunger Eating More Than Normal BUT Still Feeling Hungry
Inability to Gain or Lose Weight
MUSCLE & JOINT COMPLAINTS – Parasites can travel to almost all soft tissue including in the joints and muscles where they cause cysts and inflammation that is commonly mistaken as arthritis and muscle pain. This list includes:
Numbness of the Hands and/or Feet
Pain in The Navel
Pain in the Back, Thighs or Shoulders
BLOOD DISORDERS – The parasites get the good vitamins, including iron, leading to:
SEXUAL & REPRODUCTIVE PROBLEMS – With a weakened immune system caused by parasites and their waste you also can experience:
Candida – Yeast Infections
Urinary Tract Infections
Cysts & Fibroids
OTHER SYMPTOMS – More health problems caused by parasites:
Humaworm, I too have the numbness and tingling described in the posts and i see that is a a symptom of the parasites i am dealing with. Someone mentioned that this is a symptom that the immune system is about to crash? How do make sure my body can process all these toxins? Should i be doing a toxin cleanse while on herbs? is this safe to do at the same time? This numbness and tingling is really scaring me. Please let me know if you have any advice. Thanks so much.
These are also symptoms of celiac disease.It is brought on by the ingestion of gluten.If I were you,put yourself on a strict gluten-free diet for a month and if the symptoms begin to subside you know.This is very serious for the numbness is an indicater that the immune system is about to crash which leads to a whole string of autoimmune disease.Also suplement yourself with a gluten free folic acid and this will help alieviate the numbness.
I just wanted to let you know that you are not alone! I also suffer from the same problems with my arms and hands. It started for me when I received Taxol for Chemo for my Breast Cancer back in 2009. I was only 33 years old at the time and was diagnosed with peripheral neuropathy in my hands and feet. But as the years have gone by it has got to be so much worse. I have severe numbness and tingling pain in both arms and hands. My hands are constantly swollen and it's not water retention because no where else on my body is swollen. I have the severe loss of feeling in both my arms even during the day now and I'm terrified!. No one seems to know who I need to see to get help with this. I am so tired of suffering in constant pain and having everyone just try to manage my pain. I want to be fixed not managed!! If anyone out there has any information, please, please send me some! I don't know where to turn anymore and neither do my doctors! please any information at this point is helpful!
Not sure how old this post is but amason612 my ankles got really swollen just before my graves diagnosis, went to the doctor and he gave pills for water retention and decided to check my thyroid. It was way out but i'd had it checked a while before and it had been fine. have you had your thyroid levels checked?
