    Hi Everyone,
    I use an O2 concentrater for night time while sleeping. I often wake up in the morning with my fingers and arm (s) tingling. I check my O2 sat and it is, 97, 98 or 99? Any idea if related? Has thi# eve4 happened to you?

    Yes, it did in the beginning. Usually my circulation was poor to my extremities prior to oxygen use. Witb the oxygen it actually has helped my perfusion of blood to my hands and fingers. Think of it like when your leg falls asleep and then starts to regain its feeling and tingles. It should stop tingling thougg. Does it continue through the day for you?

      Hi David,
      I know the feeling. Sometimes the bloating of the stomach isn’t always from water retention. Do you experience this after eating or have you noticed a pattern to your bloating? Have you seen a GI specialist for this? It might be worth seeing one !

    Hello Judie

    I have associated peripheral tingling with poor perfusion rather than the opposite. When I’m sitting or lying down the soles of my feet have tingled for years now. There was a time when it could keep me awake at night. Since starting O2 therapy my sleep has not been disturbed by it, though the sensation is always still present when I wake in the morning and reappears if I stop to rest during the day. My saturation levels have almost never got as high as yours though, and I’ve not seen them above the low nineties when I’m on supplementary O2.

      Hi Anthony,
      Mine definitely seem to tingle with poor perfusion and also when blood and circulation returns to the body. It seems to happen with both. I noticed this when I am cold and then have a warm shower or if I’m getting a pedicure and my feet are in the warm water. The blood returning to the extremeties can make the feet start to tingle. I would be concerned if the tingling feeling didn’t go away or if it turned to numbness or lack of feeling. Sometimes it takes some movement to help with mine and get the blood flowing properly !
