Wake up!

Paresthesia. Pins and needles. Numbness. Tingling. Whatever you want to call it, it's happening to me. I noticed it in my hands while I was driving to work this morning. To me it feels like that very final stage of pins and needles, when everything starts to come back to life and it feels all light and tingly. When I'm working or moving my hands I don't really notice it, but when I stop, I can definitely feel the tingling. It's weird to close my eyes and suddenly be aware of a part of my body that I wouldn't otherwise feel. It's sort of like being pregnant and suddenly being aware of your belly when you close your eyes and the baby moves.

I don't know how I feel about this yet.

Is it better or worse than a migraine?

It was better than a migraine...until this morning when I woke up with hand tingling and a mother of a migraine. So now they both suck.
