My husband has been experiencing arm and hand numbness at night for about the last 6 months. Sometimes he will wake up and both hands and forearms are "asleep" with no feeling and some tingling. He is on low blood pressure medication, and has perfect readings. He is in good health over all, and is quite active. :confused:Any reason to panic?

  • My husband has been experiencing arm and hand numbness at night for about the last 6 months. Sometimes he will wake up and both hands and forearms are "asleep" with no feeling and some tingling. He is on low blood pressure medication, and has perfect readings. He is in good health over all, and is quite active. :confused:Any reason to panic? I assume you mean he is on medication to LOWER his high blood pressure, and not that he is on meds for low blood pressure - is this correct? Could you post the name of this med and how long he has been on his meds? Has he had his B12 levels tested? B12 deficiency can cause these symptoms, and it is often overlooked by doctors. Best wishesDOM
