Doctor insights on:
Hand numbness: It could mean several things. It could mean you are experiencing compromise/compression of the circulation or it could mean you are compressing the nerve at one of many different levels depending on bony and muscular anatomy as well as postural/positional changes effecting the wrist, forearm, elbow, shoulder, axilla, or neck.See 1 more doctor answer
Increased pressure: When you make a fist the flexor tendons glide proximally through the carpal tunnel. In some individuals the lumbrical muscles which arise from the profundus tendons pass back into the carpal tunnel causing pressure on the median nerve. This results in tingling and numbness in the median nerve distribution to the thumb, index finger, long finger and half the ring finger.
Position: Many times it occurs because of the position it is in when you sleep. If it persists, see your doctor.
I touched a light switch with a wet hand, had a slight electric shock, didn't hurt but was surprising.Hand tingles a bit but thats all, serious?
Not from what you : Describe but i wouldnt repeat it again! sometimes its better to be lucky. Id get that light switch looked at by an electrician and put some electrical tape over the switch ( with dry hands and gloves) so no one has that happen. If the tingling stops ok, if it persists get evaluated as the shock may be the precipitant that highlights the issue rather than the cause of the problem.See 1 more doctor answer
See below: Headaches have many potential causes. Too many to list here. I would suggest seeing her pediatrician for an evaluation.
I hit my elbow hard on a wall the side of my hand tingles when touched and when ever my elbow is tapped i get a sharp pain should I be worried?
Probably a contusion: Sounds as though you may have an ulnar nerve contustion. The complaints you have listed are common for people who "hit their funny bone". The pain should subside in time, but if it doesn't be sure to consult with a local orthopedist.

My shoulder dislocates pretty much every time I lift and now it just make this awful tearing noise.But the last 2weeks my hand tingles and goes numb?
Deterioration: Sounds like you have gone from an orthopedic problem to an orthopedic-neurological problem. You've ignored this too long. Please seek immediate medical care.See 1 more doctor answer
Carpal tunnel syndr?: You may have carpal tunnel syndrome and needs to be evauated and treated.It is caused by pressure on median nerve which supplies the thum and index finger.You will need a blood test to rule out hupothyridism which sometimes can cause this, use a carpal tunnel splint and anti inflammatory meds like naprosyn (naproxen). If that does not help, surgery will give relief consult your doctor if that's what you have?
FOREARM LUMP: I CANNOT SEE THIS LUMP! HOW LONG HAS IT BEEN THERE? HOW LARGE IS THE LUMP? HAS IT BEEN GROWING? DO YOURSELF A FAVOR: SEE YOUR PCP OR DERMATOLOGIST SOON. BEST LUCK!
When i grab heavy objects with my fingers/thumb i get a pop in my palm/thumb area and either my whole hand tingles or just my thumb. happens bothsides?
Have bells palsy and was using an electrical stimulator. The target point to use on neck caused my hand to contract on same side and hand tingles. Why?
Nerve stimulation.: The target point for electrical nerve stimulation in Bell's Palsy should be on the face in front of the ear. Stimulation the neck especially behind the collar bone will stimulate the brachial plexus or cervical nerve root . It will cause contraction or tingling in the arm or hand as expected.
See your doctor: These are important symptoms that need to be evaluated in person by your physician as soon as possible.
Hand tingles when i bend my wrist backwards and wrist feels stiff. Carpal tunnel was released may 2013.Is it related to old surgery or something else?
CT release not 100%: So rather than being related to the surgery, it may just be coming back. There have been studies showing that surgical releases work anywhere from 40-80 % of the time. Many times its still the best option, but could be that. May also be related to other nerve entrapments and you may need another emg. Discuss with your physician testing and therapies like steroid injections that may help.
I keep having episodes where I experience the worst headache imaginable, my right cheekbone and right hand tingles, and I get dizzy(for over 1 month)?
See a specialist: You need to see neurologist as soon as possible for evaluation of these symptoms. You will probably need a referral from your primary care physician.
I was going on stairs, my heart was racing which gets me anxious then face/head and hand tingles and feels like pricking everywhere?vanish after rest
Heart rate: It's normal for the heart rate to increase and become more forceful when climbing stairs. You have an anxiety reaction when you feel your heart beat. It would be important to take your pulse and see what the heart rate is during your symptoms and how long it takes to return to normal. A rate of 100 or less is not unusual and if it subsides within a few minutes, you are ok. See your physician also.
