Hello from JustAnswer.
Numbness is an absence of sensation. Some people refer to a tingling sensation as numbness, similar to when a foot or hand falls asleep. Which type of numbness are you experiencing?
Are you having any weakness or decreased coordination of the arms or hands?
Thank you for the additional information.
The sensation of falling asleep and the pins and needles sensation is not as worrisome. The soreness also is not as worrisome. These symptoms should still be checked, but they do not need urgent attention. If there are muscular symptoms, either manifested as weakness or decreased coordination, that would be more of a concern and there should be a more urgent evaluation. Since you are also having decreased coordination, it would be appropriate to be seen. If you can be seen quickly in your doctor's office or an Urgent Care Center, that would be OK, but if these cannot be done, then an evaluation in the ER may be necessary.
Is there any other assistance that I can provide?
You are very welcome. I am glad I could be of assistance.
