Can a rotator cuff injury cause tingling in my arm and wrist?

Could be from neck

Hand
I see many patients with rotator cuff tears that also have numbness, tingling, and even weakness below the shoulder into the arm, forearm, and wrist/hand. The neurological symptoms below the shoulder notoriously arise from an ongoing neck problem such as a pinched nerve within the cervical spine.

Can a rotator cuff injury cause your arm to feel like it is swelling when you try to lift it over your head even though your in extreme pain?

Maybe

Rotator_cuff_injury
Pain with overhead lifting is a common symptom with rotator cuff tears. If you are having extreme pain you need to see a doctor.

I was told by chiropractor that i had a strained rotator cuff. well i have tingling in my 4-arm wrist and hand. and my right foot too is that normal?

These symptoms

may have no relationship to one another. A strained rotator cuff and forearm paresthesias (tingling) warrant at least a cursory talk with an advice nurse; an evaluation of right foot tingling deserves a course of conservative treatment...stretching, heat...before proceeding further. I certainly agree with another doc on our network who just suggested an eval for possible neck nerve root entrapment

Dr. David Trettin answered:

Could a rotator cuff injury lead to a tingling in your fingers?

Unlikely

Injuries
Rotator cuff ' injuries' usually result in pain@ night and referred pain to the deltoid( mid- upper arm). Pts. w/ rot. cuff tears for some time can have pain/ spasms in their neck( trapezius usually) because of their difficulty elevating their arm normally and their resultant use of their scapula to ' help'raise their shoulder..'.tingling'in fingers is rare w/ RC injuries.(CTS,rad.pain >common).

Can i still workout my arms while recovering from a rotator cuff injury?

Can't say

Rotator_cuff
need to know what the injury was. Best bet is to check with your doc first before you reinjure it. I usually recommend to cont. with lower extremity cardio workout as long as the arm stays protected.

I have a rotator cuff injury and drop arm test shows supraspinatus tear. Do I need to have surgery?

Depends

Open-uri20121116-1522-s1nvdz
If you have a complete rotator cuff tear with weakness and night pain in your dominant shoulder then yes, at age 45 you may need surgery. You don't mention having an MRI. If you do get an MRI arthrogram as it provides more information. Have you tried any physical therapy yet ?

Been lifting weights, today right shoulder felt very weak and little painful. This is my dominant arm. Can this be ALS? Rotator cuff injury? Male 20

Injuries

Weight
Sounds like to much weight lifting - this is not ALS and likely not a rotator cuff injury, if the weakness does not go away you would need to be evaluate for a possible disc herniation.

Pain in lat muscle, below armpit on my back, flares when extending arm overhead (i.e. tennis serve, throwing) is this rotator cuff injury?

Latisimus strain

Rotator_cuff_injury
This is best diagnosed with a hands on exam but sounds like your latisimus dorsi muscle is strained. Rotator cuff is often achy down the side of the deltoid,back of shoulder, or front of shoulder. But, it is possible. Get an examination to be specific.
