- Does anyone get numbness in lower legs after sleeping for 4-5 hours? wakes me up and now advil no longer helping with discomfort
Not sure if any of my COPD medications are causing my lower leg numbness or if I have an undiagnosed medical condition. I have been taking Spiriva and Advair for at least a year. The numbness seems to wake me up after 4-5 hours of sleep. Recently started using the Proventil HFA inhaler but not every day so not sure if this rescue inhaler is causing lower leg numbness. No tingling or cramping occurring in lower legs. Also stomach seems to be slightly throbbing at the same time but only if lying on either side..do not feel this sensation if lying on my back. Advil used to help me get back to sleep but now it does not seem to be helping this numbness subside. Anyone else ever have anything like this? No numbness during daytime
