NUMBNESS AND SORENESS IN HANDS A RESULT OF HGH?
Mar 13, 2006
I am a 33 year old male who has been taking for a month, 12mg of saizen hgh. I reduced that to 6mg per week for the second month and have now decided to stop altogether as my fingers are numb and my hands are sore. I am fully convinced of the cause effect relationship between hgh and this condition that has persisted for about two weeks. I am not asking whether to stop or not but rather, will these symptoms subside upon discontinuation?

Generally muscle/bone/nerve pain from growth hormone will diminish over time once stopped. Sometimes growth hormone will trigger carpal tunned syndrome which can linger for a longer period of time (months)after stopping growth hormone. May need to have it evaluated by your HIV specialist or a neurologist. KH
