Never worried too much in the past about numbness or tingling as I haven't experienced those.
But recently I have developed this odd sensation and a bunch of pains in my right arm that really concern me. I've had an issue with pains and stuff for a few months now, since the death of my dad, and I am also going through very intensive psychotherapy for an extremely painful childhood trauma, so after bloodtests (2 months back) my doc thinks my issues are related to the stress, etc.
Anyway, the arm:
Began as deep muscle pain at top of arm near shoulder, on and off, especially if I'd lied on it in night, etc.
This lasted weeks until about 10 days ago it spread down my arm, but in this weird way. Like now I have the pain in intricate finger muscles, and this sensation has started up down the side spreading onto my palm. This sensation is what bothers me the most - I can handle the pain on it's own.
The sensation is like a weird tickly tingle whenever my hand moves against anything, like clothes or stroking my cat. It goes through me in a horrible way, almost like a pain, but more of a sensation if that makes sense?
It does not really happen when the hand is still.
It's like the nerves in my hand and arm are messed up, although I have no difficulty moving or doing things with it, just this pain and horrible tingly tickle sensation. It's almost like there is too much sensation, as opposed to too little, so it is not like numbness. It's like my hand and arm are a 'live wire' or something.
Anyone had this, and is this the tingling some people complain of?
I do know my body is wracked with stress and emotional pain, and not surprised i am suffering to be honest. It is the most stressful time of my entire life.
I am so scared that is is a brain disease.
Any input would be most appreciated!
