More on night tingling

Very interesting. I was diagnosed with CIDP just about two years ago. I have more-or-less continuous tingling, loss of feeling, and pain in my feet and lower legs. It’s a nuisance, but I have pretty much learned to ignore it.

But lately, I have had a sensation of my hands and arms “falling asleep” when I am in bed at night. It’s an odd mixture of numbness and pain (seems contradictory, I know). It is really troublesome, and frequently wakes me up. My other symptoms are pretty well controlled by regular IVIG, and I didn’t think this was related to the CIDP. In fact, I had just about convinced myself that I have carpal tunnel. But, hearing that others have the same problem, I think I will bring it up to my neurologist.
