Hard to say: Could be from impingement, caused by something as benign as sleep position. Consider that type of cause, including overuse, and see your Dr. If it doesn't resolve.

Left hand fingers tingling constantly for weeks. Tested negative for cts. Primarily right handed so don't think it's overuse? Anything to worry about?

Must have some cause: If an EMG was performed and showed no peripheral nerve injury then one should consider a central cause. This is particularly true if you have any symptoms in your left leg or face. If an EMG was not performed then pay attention to the fingers involved as the ulnar nerve could be the source and affects the last two fingers of the hand. Please consider meeting with a neurologist to get an answer.

Is left arm and hand tingling a common side effect after 10 days of detox?

Not really: But, did you develop the symptoms in the A.M., after sleeping on your arm? Saturday night palsy affecting the radial nerve in the upper arm? Have your detox folks look at this, as it may well be readily reversible or secondary to alternative nerve issue.

Normal stressecho, agatston score of 0.5, good chol/hdl/ldl, bp120/80-130/80. Overweight. Left elbow to hand tingling. What could this be? TIA?

Normal stressecho, agatston score of 0.5, good chol/hdl/ldl, bp120/80-130/80. Overweight. Left elbow to hand tingling. What could this be? TIA?

No: It's a neuritis symptom, not cardiac, not TIA. Nerve compression or impingement are common issues. Ulnar neuritis would be my first thought but it could be higher up (in the neck). If it persists, a nerve conduction study would be of value.

If anxiety/tension/fear, mild nerve pain in left chest, shoulder and hand (tingling sensation for one nerve in hand). What could be the reason?

If anxiety/tension/fear, mild nerve pain in left chest, shoulder and hand (tingling sensation for one nerve in hand). What could be the reason?

Can not state: With certainty. This is one situation in which medical evaluation needs to be done to ensure that there is not an underlying medical condition. If tingling sensation of hand is not exclusive to panic attacks - then neurological assessment is likely indicated. This will allow for determination of whether symptoms are related to anxiety/ panic.

Sharp radiating pain in left thigh, muscle spasms in left leg, left leg very restless at times. Left arm strong ache in it with hand tingling. Only 22?

Lle: Possibly coincidental that the left arm and leg are symptomatic unless there is something in the brain causing it. More likely carpal tunnel in hand and pinched mid lumbar nerve or diabetic amotrophy.
