Hi, i've been taking beyaz for a month and a half now, and I'm a perfect pill taker. Just today, in fact just this evening, I feel a little tingling feeling in my right hand and lower part of my forearm below my elbow. My hand/arm is not completely numb, just that pins and needles feeling. I've been feeling this way for about two hours or so. I don't believe I pulled any muscles or pinched any nerves, but I might have accidentally done something I'm just not able to recall. I'm just concerned because the instruction pamphlet for Beyaz says numbness in your arms is a big side effect that should be a concern for stroke or blood clots or something. My arm/hand is NOT numb, just tingly. Should I be concerned? I've been feeling just a touch nauseous lately, and my breasts are a little tender, but other than that I've had no real adverse reactions. I'm almost 20 years old, on no other medications that would interact negatively with Beyaz, and I take my pills on time. Should I be concerned about the pins and needles feeling in my lower arm/hand, or is it really only a concern if your arm is in a great deal of pain or completely numb?

Tingling can happen for all sorts of reasons. My guess is that serious numbness is what they're truly talking about, but I really don't know. However, since the pamphlet does mention it as a side effect that shouldn't be ignored, I'd suggest making an appointment with your health care provider to discuss it. They can examine you and, if it does turn out to be something else, that will relieve any worry you have about it and allow you to get whatever it is treated.
