This may have nothing at all to do with my surgery, but it started not too long after I had my RNY. In the space between my shoulder blades, I get a wierd, numb, tingly sensation. At first it would really bother me - even my shirts rubbing against it would almost hurt. I think I have gotten a little used to it....I was going to mention at my next Dr. appt....but yesterday I was outside for awhile at a company picnic, and all of a sudden I got a sharp, stinging sensation in the exact same area. I thought for sure that I had been stung by a bee (or two, or ten!)...but nothing was there. The stinging went away after about 10 minutes. Now tonight, coming in the house from the grocery store, same thing happened. A sharp stinging pain. My husband was right there, and he looked. He said that the area was red, but no bumps or signs of any bites/stings.
I never felt this sensation until after my RNY, but it could have nothing at all to do with it. My B12 was in the 500's in June when I had my bloodwork, but I take 1000mcg every day...and 3-4 times per week I am taking 2000 mcg per day. I am not having unusal numbness anywhere else. This is just such a strange sensation that it is hard to explain....it's numb but it hurts at the same time.
