Hands feel like they are asleep

The numbness and tingling is better now, but I'm not sure if it was one single thing that helped. I think it was a combination of increasing my blood volume with epogen, IV iron and neurontin. These three things have improved several of my symptoms. I take other meds too, fluid and salt intake increase.

I suffer from that, too. It just comes and goes with no apparant cause. It is always worse in the mornings. I just try to keep typing when it happens. I have my elbows resting on the arms of my chair and the heels of my hands on a soft pad in front of my keyboard. This way all I have to move are my fingers. I wiggle my fingers and clench my hands into a fist and that helps, too. But for me it seems to help to just keep trying to use my fingers. I also quiver a lot, and it seems to help that, too if I keep working. Of course, I make a lot of mistakes that I have to fix, but that's okay, too.

I guess it's another common POTS complaint.
