“Pins and Needles” sensation (arms, hands, upper back)
So it’s looking more and more like I have persistent asthma. A recent HRCT revealed nothing of concern per my pulmonologist, a radiologist, a cardiologist. There was no bronchiectasis and my upper right lobe is apparently the sole asthmatic lobe as it is the one producing all the mucus (and it’s been very busy). I have to work pretty hard at times to remove the mucus; aggressive throat clearing, forced coughing … it gets tiring! At times I “thump” my chest to get it moving. Lately I’ve been having a “pins and needles” sensation down my arms, into my hands, and in my upper back. It’s generally gone in the mornings (I actually sleep well) and reoccurs as the day progresses. I think it’s from the (at times) aggressive and ongoing throat clearing and forced coughing. (Or perhaps a side effect of Symbicort.) has anyone else with excess mucus issues experienced this same issue?
