Hey guys....maybe you can help. Sometimes my left arm goes numb. Is it panic or something physical?

The other night i woke up with a numb arm...i got a little scared.
ellekay, even though it won't hurt to check it out with a doctor, i wouldn't worry about it too much.

it used to happen to me all the time when i had a really bad panic attack, right in the middle of it, and it only scared me more. in fact, the left side of my body is always affected by panic attacks and anxiety. my left shoulder would go numb, my left hand would tingle and go numb...i would get these shooting pains throughout my left arm (very, very unpleasant feeling)...and believe me, there is nothing physically wrong with me.

now, i don't exactly know what your particular problem is, but just so you know, it is very, very possible for that kind of symptom to be cause by panic and anxiety.
mY LEFT ARM WOULD ACHE AND I TOLD MY DOC AND HE SAID I MIGHT HAVE NERVE DAMAGE BECAUSE I ALWAYS SLEEP ON MY LEFT ARM AND IT GOES NUMB WHILE I AM ASLEEP AND I DO IT A LOT. I DON'T THINK THERE IS ANYTHING WRONG BUT IT WOULDN'T HURT TO GET IT LOOKED AT! SOMETIMES MY LEGS ACHE TOO! HOPE YOU FEEL BETTER!
