Do you ever get this numb or tingly sensation in your hands? Don’t just blame it on cold weather and call it a day, because it could be a serious health problem.
Numbness and tingling sensations, medically known as paresthesia, can happen in any part of your body, but especially in the hands, arms, legs, and feet, as a response to different conditions.
Maybe you’re extremely stressed, slept on your arm, sat for too long in one position, or it’s just too cold and the lack of blood flow is making your limbs numb and painful but it gets better when you’re warmer.
