I have been, for the past three weeks, experiencing needles and pins and my hands, arms and sometimes in my toes for no apparent reason. It is worse in my right arm and especially when I sleep my hands go completely numb. I am obese.
I have gained almost 10 kilos in 6 weeks time, could it be caused by the weight I gained, bloodsugar or maybe a nerve?
