Hi all,
I’m 23 weeks pregnant and for the last few days have been suffering with my health anxiety terrible again.
This has all stemmed from waking up about a week ago with a weak left arm.
For the past week my left arm has felt heavy at some points, a dull ache at others and sometimes numb. Ofcourse I assumed the worst at first and thought heart attack,stroke etc. This is from the top of my shoulder down to my hand. Some days it has been a lot less than others. I can’t see it’s painful just more annoying but the more I think about it the worse it gets.
Has anyone else experienced this?

Hi,
Have you phoned your dr or 111?
It is best to let a dr assess you.
I hope you feel better very soon.
Congrats on your pregnancy to.

Thankyou!!!
I rang MAU last week and she said it could be carpel tunnel syndrome however it isn’t an intense pain so I’m not convinced

Hi, hope you're feeling better. I'm also pregnant, 7 weeks and I suffer from health anxiety disorder. I sometimes get those weird feeling and when I do it sends my anxiety through the roof and it's so annoying. I just wish I could enjoy my pregnancy instead of worrying all the time

I think if something was still concerning me, I would ring my Doctor... Hope this helps :)

The feeling in your left arm?
Horrible isn’t it!
I had started to enjoy my pregnancy over the last couple of months but my anxiety has just sky rocketed. Please stay strong x
