Right hand is always cold and right arm feels numb/tingly. What could this be?

Right hand is always cold and right arm feels numb/tingly. What could this be?

Thoracic Outlet: While these symptoms could certainly be a normal finding, if their severity is worse enough it maybe related to an artery/nerve issue in the shoulder region. Thoracic outlet syndrome is a condition that can cause numbness/tinging sensations as well as poor blood flow into an arm/hand. A vascular surgeon may be able to help address this better. I hope this helps. ...Read more

My left arm was heavy, and when I went to feel it, my left hand was cold. My right arm feels fine. Could this be heart related?

My left arm was heavy, and when I went to feel it, my left hand was cold. My right arm feels fine. Could this be heart related?

Maybe (not). . .: Go to ER now. Don't pass Go. But do call 911 to expedite your care. You didn't describe pain or weakness but I suspect latter w/"heavy". While not common in 20yo, sudden onset of weakness in any limb is suspicious for stroke. Think FAST (http://www. Stroke. Org/understand-stroke/recognizing-stroke/act-fast). Painful cold limb is suspicious for ischemia (inadequate blood flow). Either way, go now. ...Read more

Cold left arm, warm right arm. History of coarctation of the aorta?

Cold left arm, warm right arm. History of coarctation of the aorta?

Coarctation of aorta: In this condition, there is a narrowing in the aorta, the main artery coming out of the heart and bringing blood to the body. It would be common for this to result in lower blood pressure in the left arm, and one might feel this as a temperature difference. Children and adults with coarctation should be followed by a cardiologist with expertise in this condition. ...Read more

My right arm feel real cold n my vision got blurred should I be concern?

Many things: This sounds like a stress reaction, however it could be many things. Anything that can effect multiple nerves (nerves to eye and arm) like diabetes, ms, lyme disease, vascular is and many more. The bottom line is that you need a physical exam by a medical doctor and probably an eye exam by an ophthalmologist. ...Read more

I have pain in my shoulder when I try and lift my right arm and my right pinky is very cold to touch but feels hot inside. What could this be?

I have pain in my shoulder when I try and lift my right arm and my right pinky is very cold to touch but feels hot inside. What could this be?

Pinched nerve: A pinched nerve can cause neck pain headaches, and pain or numbness running into the arm. There are other potential causes, however, and so it would be good to just get a regular check up to make sure it is nothing else. An MRI can confirm the diagnosis. Therapy, chiropractic, and interventional pain management are the non operative treatments for it if it doesn't get better. Thank you. ...Read more

My right arm and hand are quite cold, the left arm and hand are normal temp.

My right arm and hand are quite cold, the left arm and hand are normal temp.

Vascular dz: Consider a subclavian artery stenosis (narrowing) of the blood vessel giving blood flow to the arm. Blood pressure should be lower in the cold arm than the warm arm. Reflex sympathetic dystrophy is another consideration but usually has pain. This should be evaluated with a ultrasound study of blood flow velocity in into and through the arm. If present other vascular disease must be considered. ...Read more

Hey, I've gotten a weird sensation in my right arm, it felt like someone sprayed cold water on it, do you happen to know why? Nerve damage?

Potentially: The nerves do carry all sensation from your arm to your brain, so it is possible even probable that it is nerve related. I would not hesitate to be seen for an accurate diagnosis. ...Read more

I am having neck pain and facial tingling on my right side only. Also my right arm is always cold. What could this mean?

Multiple causes: You may have jaw joint disfunction (TMD) which is a dental problem. The sore joint would be just in front of the ear. This could cause neck ache but no arm coldness. Sympathetic nervous responses are highly variable and respond negatively to tension. Relax, do grind your teeth or clench your jaw. ...Read more

I keep randomly getting goosebumps/chills on my right leg and a little bit of tingling on my right arm only. When I'm not cold. Should I be concerned?

Not really.: Probably due to hyperventilation from anxiety or stress type things. But have your thyroid gland, blood sugar and blood chemistry checked to make sure nothing wrong in there.

Right arm started to feel numb while driving car. Feels cold. Like blood isn't circulating. Pinking and ring finger feel most numb.?

Numbness: At your age I would suspect a pinching of nerves or blood vessel by positional factors while driving and that symptoms would resolve with avoiding prolonged arm and hand positions like those. This would be more likely than other causes like blockages in arm, neck or brain blood vessels. If symptoms didn't quickly resolve see your physician or a neurologist but take an aspirin first. ...Read more

My right arm above elbo gets tight like no blood flow then hand gets really cold this really worrys me can you please help me with a answer?

R S D: The sympathetic nerves control blood flow and sweating and color of the skin. When the sympathetic nerves are irritated, bouts of pain, discoloration, temperature change and sweat change can occur. This is referred to as reflex sympathetic dystrophy (rsd). It is difficult to diagnose and difficult to treat. A thorough evaluation would be appropriate. ...Read more

Sudden pain after gardening in right arm, getting worse, developed tingling in right hand, taken pain relief and using hot and cold packs,?

Sudden pain after gardening in right arm, getting worse, developed tingling in right hand, taken pain relief and using hot and cold packs,?

It depends: The pain makes it less likely a stroke or something which requires immediate attention. Heart attacks can create pain in the extremities but not the tingling typically. Most likely we are dealing with a nerve that is pinched, most often at the neck level. If not promptly better with conservative measures such as otc pain remedies, heat/ice...clearly worth having checked out asap. ...Read more
