I Wake Up And My Finger Tips And Toes Are Numb What Causes This
Numbness on waking: When you are sleeping, there is reduced movements. Sometimes, one may lie in a position that compresses some nerves for hours, or compresses blood vessels that supply these nerves. These nerves then do not function properly, and there can be a sensation of numbness or tingling, even pain. With movement after you wake up, the pressure is released, and function rapidly returns to normal. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
What would cause me to loose feeling in my thumb, index and middle finger on my left hand? I woke up and they were numb this morning and still are.
Nerve issue: This sounds like a nerve issue. Either it was positional when you or sleeping, and it is likely the same nerve, median, that carpal tunnel can affect, or a nerve from your neck or shoulder coming down. Typically this does resolve over time. I would recommend an evaluation if it does not. ...Read more

New exam. Maybe EMG: A new examination by a physician who specializes in nerve pain (dysesthesias) is warranted.

When I wake up my entire arm is in a pretty bad pain while feeling kind of numb and my finger tips feel tingly. What could be the reason?
It depends: Often an arm that is in pain with numbness and tingling after awakening meant that you slept on it, causing a decrease in blood flow and/or a compression of one of the nerves in the arm. If this is the case, it should resolve on its own. However, with your history of diabetes, this could be neuropathic pain if your diabetes is not well controlled. A visit with your doctor may be needed. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Hi doctors. Sometimes i experienced numbness on my toes and finger tips and it feels like pins and needles. Also tingling. What is the prevention for?
Find the cause: It sounds as if you may have neuropathy, a disease that compromises nerve function. While diabetes is the most common cause in the us, there are many other possible causes that should be investigated. A more sensitive study (a glucose tolerance test) can also diagnose early diabetes in people who otherwise appear normal. A neurologist can help with the search for causes and help manage symptoms. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
What causes hand swelling during exercise? I walk several times a week, and my fingers get puffy to the point that I can't get my rings off.
Hand swelling during exercise is a fairly common problem: The cause isn't completely clear, but hand swelling appears to be a result of the way your body and blood vessels respond to the increased energy demands of your muscles during exercise. Exercise increases blood flow to your heart and lungs, as well as to the muscles you're working. This can reduce blood flow to your hands, making them cooler. In turn, the blood vessels in your hands may react by opening wider — which could lead to hand swelling. As you continue to exercise, your muscles generate heat that makes your system push blood to the vessels closest to the surface of your body, to dissipate heat. This response triggers perspiration and may also contribute to hand swelling. Sometimes, endurance athletes develop hyponatremia (hi-poe-nuh-TREE-me-uh) — an abnormally low level of sodium concentration. Swollen fingers and hands may be a sign of hyponatremia, but other signs, such as confusion and vomiting, are more prominent than is swelling. Drinking too much water, particularly during a marathon or similar long, strenuous event, may cause your body's sodium to become so diluted that you become hyponatremic. Hyponatremia requires immediate medical attention. There's no proven way to prevent or reduce most exercise-related hand swelling, but these tips may help ease discomfort: Remove your rings and loosen your watchband before exercise. , Perform occasional forward and backward arm circles during exercise. , Stretch your fingers wide and then make fists several times during exercise. ...Read more
