Delirium

804d

Does anyone else find that their limbs "fall asleep" extremely quickly? Sometimes my legs go numb within only 30 seconds or so of crossing them, and my hands "fall asleep" very fast when held upright. Is this an EDS thing? Seems to be happening more lately.

      I never thought that might might be an eds thing but I have absolutley experienced this!

      Absolutely! I wake up sometimes and my entire arm (up to my shoulder) will be numb! It's kinda scary! 😅

      I think its a blood circulation thing. If you have POTS or dysautonomia to any degree youre going to have difficulty with blood normally circulating in the body. Something that helps with that is movement, so if you sit for awhile it may be easier for stuff to fall asleep

      Yes!!! No idea if it’s an EDS thing, but this definitely happens to me. Also feet/toes falling asleep and staying that way for days at a time.
