Hi everyone. I had my vsg on April 7th. A few nights ago I felt really bad tingling in my left arm and left side of face. It went away after about an hour or so (not sure if it's related). I went to the beach last night, and you know how when you're sitting on the ground, you put your arms behind you and kind of relax on your arms? Well I was doing that and every time I moved from that position, when I'd move my arms back to normal, my fingers on both hands would be stiff and "locked" for a few seconds before I could move them. I ofcourse thought Calcium, but I'm taking my Vitamins, calcium chews, and still having one Premier Protein shake a day with 650mg of calcium in that alone, so idk. Has anyone else had this?

Perhaps you may need more hydration and possibly electrolytes.
But give your team a call if you can and tell them about this. They may have so tips or instructions for you

I’ve always had that - getting stiff or cramped if I stay in the same position too long (could be five minutes could be 30). My hands became cramped from holding my iPad while reading last night.

Your weight distribution is changing as you’re losing weight so that may be contributing too. Magnesium can help with cramping.

But if anything seems or feels strange for you, always contact your medical team to be sure.
