I think my husband has CFS. He wakes up with a numbness in his hands, arms, face, tongue?
Does anyone else get this?

I know CFS is not easy nor is fibro, chronic pain and what everyone else is here for. I appreciate you taking the time to post but am looking for an answer to the question I left. Thanks.

Denim,
I do wake up with numbness in my hands, mainly - rarely, it travels to the arms. I think, however, that it could be positional in nature and related to carpal tunnel. So I am not at all sure what would cause the same thing in the tongue and face. Sorry I couldn't be more help. I don't think it is something I would ignore, though. Hopefully you'll get some other posts on this.
Good Luck!
diagnoses:  mono 1972; postviral CFS 1997; fibro 1998; CEBV 2005; UCTD (dx limbo) 2007
meds:  occasional low dose xanax for sleep, artificial tears w/ ointment at night, ibuprophin (none of which manages the problems very well!)

Thank you. Unfortunately our doctor doesn't know. Does anyone know what type of doctor would be best to see? My husband has been given synthroid but no results yet and I know that the numbness and a feeling of his hands being swollen also occurs. So far no real answers, I thank you for your concern and taking the time to post. My Best~

No, he's been tested for it but it runs in his family. It is just been a mystery. I am on this forum often for him because of different things popping up. He is getting out of breath and tired doing the slightest things.
