I Have Pain In My Left Arm Down To My Hand With Numbness In The Fingers
Left arm pain weakness and numbness. What kind of doctor should I see? Pain is from the elbow down into the hand 39 yr old male
Neurologisr: There are many possible causes. The presence of weakness and numbness strongly suggest that nerves are being compressed in the arm. This could eminate fron the neck or from nerve entrapment at the elbow (cubital tunnel syndrome). A neurologist can diagnose this with elctrical studies and radiographic imagiong as needed.
Neck, left shoulder and left arm pain. I have tingling all the way down my arm. More in my pinky and ring finger..
Intrinsic shoulder: Joint problem, such as rotator cuff tear or frozen shoulder joint may be present. The numbness could be indeed "shoulder hand syndrome" or maybe brachial plexus issue associated with the shoulder pain. Perhaps a parsonage turner syndrome or even a thoracic outlet syndrome if symptoms worsen on arm elevation. However, sounds like a mix of joint and plexus. See orthopedic surgeon first.See 1 more doctor answer
Nerve root injury: One of the more common causes of your symptoms is a cervical nerve root injury called cervical radiculopathy. In a man of your age the cause is more likely to be osteoarthritis affecting the foramen (hole where the nerve root exits). The reports of numbness argues against an intrinsic shoulder problem and without antecedent trauma a brachial plexus lesion is unlikely. Please go see your doc.See 1 more doctor answer
I felt a lump in left arm while pressing down on it. Numb hand and fingers also. What can this be?
Symptoms ongoing for a year. Chest pain, left arm pain, left calf and thigh pain. Sometimes numbness in hand. No one knows. Been to many drs.
Mystery: Your year long syndrome deserves better than a 2 line description (your part) and wild guessing (our part). A thorough evaluation is necessary. If the UK system allows you to go to a university for a comprehensive evaluation, I would recommend that.
Left and right arm pain/numbness in hand and fingers for two days, started a new job really using hands. Felt fine went to sleep woke up at 1am with it?
Carpal Tunnel: Sounds like irritation of median nerve. Your new job must involve a lot of computer work. See a neurologist.
My hubby (33) woke up with a sore upper left arm, and numbness in his pointer and middle finger (of left hand). What might the cause be?
Nerve issue: Pain and numbness in a limb sounds like a pinched nerve. It can be pinched in the neck or wrist as well as possibly other places in the arm. Carpal tunnel can cause these symptoms as well and often cause numbess in thumb and index finger. You can try over the counter nsaids and a wrist splint but if sx aren't going away and especially if you have weakness you should see your doc.
Having pain in left arm and little numbness in left hand fingers. My ECG was normal. I am diabetic and hypertension pt what to do??

I have pain on my left shoulder blade and next to my spine. As well as arm pain and slight numbness in my ring and pinky finger. Also have acid reflux?
Consider these:: The numbness anatomy suggests ulnar distribution or c8-t-1, nerve compression in the neck, but this could also be seen in thoracic outlet syndrome. Have you had some recent trauma? Testing can reveal the diagnosis. Doubt the stomach issues relate to the arm and shoulder problem.See 1 more doctor answer
I have had numbness on my left pinky and part of my ring finger for the past 3 weeks can it be from lifting a heavy object I lifted a full paint bucket using my left arm only and my pinky and ring fingers have been numb since
Numbness: Numbness in the left pinkie and the pinkie-finger side of the ring finger is usually caused by an injury to the ulnar nerve. In addition to lifting heavy objects (called a "traction" injury), the nerve can frequently be injured by compression, usually at the elbow, forearm, wrist or hand. Similar feelings can sometimes also be caused by nerve problems in the neck, or in an interchange of nerves called the brachial plexus. It takes a careful neurological examination, often aided by the use of nerve conduction study / electromyography to tell the difference between these problems. Treatment can include splinting, surgery, or hand therapy (usually done by occupational therapists). Left undiagnosed and untreated, problems can get worse and can lead to things including permanent weakness in the hand. Neurologists who are board certified in neurology and board certified in electrodiagnostic medicine may be most helpful.
Should I be concerned with numbness in my pinky finger, ring finger, and along that same line up my left arm? Is it a potential clot or a nerve issue?
Ulnar nerve: This sounds like a problem with your ulnar nerve up in your elbow. This is the thick cord in your elbow called your "funny bone" that sends electric shocks down when you hit it. You should get this checked out by a doc to see what treatment needs to be done before this leads to permanent problems.See 1 more doctor answer

What could cause a tingling sensation in my left arm, hot feeling in the palm, feeling pinky, next finger and thumb are asleep, facial numbness feeling?
Tingling sensation a: Depending on whether the symptoms are abrupt or chronic, the answers are different. It could be a cerebrovascular event such as a stroke, or a combination of problems, facial neuralgia with a cervical radiculopathy. It depends on your medical history. This may be emergent, and it should be worked up immediately by a neurologist.
Problem in stress, pain in left arm from axilla to fingers especially ring finger last finger and thumb, sharp shooting pain and numbness of digits?
Need examination: You should be examined by a neurologist in all likelihood and very possibly you may benefit from an EMG which is an electrical test. Also, an imaging study such as CT or MRI may be requested to look the neck region. Try and discover (and document) what makes the shooting pains better and what makes them worse to tell the doctor. They will appreciate that information.
