Woke up this morning and my hands are white and cool and weak. My one forearm is starting to feel cool as well. Suggestions..Ideas. Thank you.
Just answered: The site is faulty. I said earlier, that there are conditions which can make the hands white or bluish (raynaud's) or by neck position the circulation can be decreased (limbs go to sleep) such as thoracic inlet syndrome or nerve problem go to your doctor, as he/she can make maneuvers to point to a working diagnosis and start the work up from there. Diagnoses can't be made here with short history. ...Read more
Hit the back of my forearm closest to elbow hard. now arm feel weird, heavy, and kind of weak. should i be concerned?
Take some NSAIDs and: rest the arm, apply some Ice pack for 15 minutes every 2-3 hrly, and do gently exercises of the hand and wrist as well as elbow. If no increasing pains and U are able to do these, then you probably have bruised your arm only. If increasing pain or not improving get seen and maybe an Xray might be needed. Good Luck and Happy Holidays. ...Read more

Both of my arms were numb from the forearm down for two weeks. Now the numbness is gone but they feel weak. Could this be a pinched nerve?
Yes: Forearm numbness down to the hands can be very complex. It will require more detailed explanation of the pattern of numbness/weakness and may be either from your neck , your wrist, or your elbow compressing a nerve. I suggest you see a physician (neurologist or neurosurgeon) asap to get a hands-on study and likely a emg/ncv (a nerve study) to better make a diagnosis. ...Read more

My symptoms are:- top of head feels numb. My upper arms feel really weak like i've been doing heavy exercise. Hands tingle. Forearms ache.
It depends: If the pain is medial and goes into your ring and little finger, it's probably cubital tunnel syndrome, which is a pinched nerve on the inside of the elbow. If its the outside of the elbow, it may be tennis elbow syndrome. Both should be treated with rest and anti-inflammatory medication, but if it keeps hurting see a doctor. ...Read more
