I am 51 and have similar. Hyperlipidemia treted since 40yrs old and burning central chest feeling when I wake up.
My hands go to sleep when I'm lying in bed.
I have to rub them for five minutes or so to get them awake.
This morning the right hand and right arm were tingling for three or four minutes.
