I was tired last night. Physically exhausted. So, I took a pain pill, and my scheduled nerve pain med and hit the hay. I must have slept in the same position from 10pm until 2am. I awoke from some nondescript nightmare and could not feel my right arm or leg. Without thought my left arm reached over and tried to pick up the right and my hand was completely limp. No feeling, no control. None. Like some hot raw slab of beef the whole thing just dangled there. My fingers would not move at all. My wrist would not move at all. Oh hell this scared me. My leg had some very slow reactive movement, but the sensations were dulled. My first thought was, Oh Shit I must have had a stroke and now my right side is paralyzed. I decided to say something out loud to make sure that I could still speak and move my lips. I could! After the leg got some feeling back the arm and hand were still just hot weight and would not respond. So, then I thought, Oh shit I have ruptured a disc in my cervical spine (I have had some issues there in the last few years that I have been ignoring). But thankfully after what seemed like an eternity my arm started to hurt like hell (Yay, life!), and then burn and then I could wiggle my finger.
Umm, whatever I need to do to avoid that set of circumstances again in my life, I am doing it.
Anyone else have this problem?
