Sensory Loss
Sep 3, 2008

It has occurred several times recently but it wasn't as serious as this time. It's hard to explain how it happened. I was bending down a little then I got back up too quickly. As a result I began to feel pain and numbness in both my arms. Seconds later I couldn't feel my hands, arms, and legs anymore. The next thing I knew I was on the floor and still couldn't feel my body parts for awhile. I saw my right arm moving but it didn't feel like I was moving it. Few minutes later I began to feel them again, but my arms still hurt and tingle, especially my wrist and biceps. Could you explain what might be the problem? Thank you.
