Dialysis Session: Numbs in Fingers and Toes

Postby hazens » Tue Aug 08, 2006 5:44 am

After yesterday's hemodialysis session, I feel with numb in the fingers of my left hand and two of the toes of my left foot. I talked to the nurse, but he said this probably happend because of wrong positioning to my hand and leg, muscles, etc., and doesn't have anything with the fluids. But I think this was due to pulling out more fluids than what is permitted.

Is that feeling perminant or temporary?

Any input is appreciated.
