I just want to know possible causes of my right arm and hand tingling every time I urinate.

Wow. .. that's an: Unusual association! One might speculate that a change in position in your low back/lumbar spine when you sit on the toilet might cause some nerve compression but it's hard to imagine this effect in the upper spine where nerves to arms/hands exit. Perhaps this is a valsalva (push to urinate) effect, though hard to imagine, too. I can only suggest discussion with your doctor/probably a Neurologist ...Read more

What medical condition could be the cause if the right arm and hand are numb, tingling, and sore?

What medical condition could be the cause if the right arm and hand are numb, tingling, and sore?

Pinched Nerve: While there are many causes of arm pain and numbness one of the most common causes is cervical radiculopathy. This occurs when one of the nerves leaving the neck gets compressed as it leaves the spine and travels down the arm. Compression may occur due to degenerative/bulging discs or arthritic bone spurs contacting the nerve. See your physician if these symptoms last longer than 2 weeks. ...Read more

If my right arm and hand from the elbow down are tingling, is this probably a sign of poor blood circulation?

Cubital tunnel: A more common cause of the described symptoms is compression of the ulnar nerve behind the elbow. Tingling from ulnar nerve goes into the small and ring finger. Try wearing an elbow pad with the pad rotated around to the front of the elbow at night. This keeps the elbow from bending, thereby keeping pressure off the nerve. If symptoms persist, consult with an upper extremity surgeon. Emg helpful. ...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,?

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
