Neuropathy symptoms are worse when I sit or lay down: Anyone else?

Posted by pitepalten @pitepalten, Nov 26, 2021

My problems are worse when I sit or lay down. I now work standing and limit sitting or laying watching tv. When I wake up my arms have fallen asleep. This started 3 months ago and the discomfort is all over but worse in my arms, legs and back. I have had all the tests but no one can find anything. I also have a rash on my neck. It has been there for a week. Doesn’t itch. My dr prescribed 30mg Zymbalta. I take it prior to going to bed. Anyone have similar symptoms?

Have any of your doctors said what brought on or caused the neuropathy?

my left leg is due to less blood flow to it. I only have 75% blood flow to it. The right leg is affected, but have 100% blood flow. Mine is the same way with a lot of you, it hurts more when sitting or lying. When sitting after like 10 minutes my left foot is vibrating very badly. Hopefully when I go see the vascular doctor in January, I still have4 the same amount of blood flow in my legs.
