I have been bodybuilding for a little over a year now. I "lifted weights" in high school, but that was a long time ago. Anyway, since lifting weights, the last 4 or 5 months, I have had a numbness in my hands. It is mainly in my left hand and forearm. This ussually occurs when my arms are at my sides (standing, sitting, or lying down). If I move my arms slightly outward from my side, the numbness goes away amost imediately. If I sleep with my arms on top of the covers (I sleep on my back) then it tend to minimize the numbness. It is not painful or anything, it is more of a discomfort.
Is this common? I do cardio 4 to 5 times a week (in the morning before I eat). My blood pressure is 121/88 (that is what it was when I donated blood this morning). So I do not feel it is circulation or blood pressure related. Seems like more of a neurve (sp) issue. Comments?
