Have repetitive movements made hand tingle and numb?

Have repetitive movements made hand tingle and numb?

It's possible: It is possible that you have carpal tunnel syndrome. This is a syndrome caused by repetitive movements that causes hand tingling and eventually hand grip weakness. Please see your md to obtain a emg/ncv (muscle and nerve study) to determine if you have carpal tunnel syndrome.

Can you tell me how I could stop autistic type hand flapping/motor movements?

Can you tell me how I could stop autistic type hand flapping/motor movements?

Movements: these repetitive hand movements seen both in autistic and Rett syndrome is at times considered " self stimulating" if, it also involve increase masturbation. No particular specific medication helpful, however worth mentioning would be Beta Blockers( Inderal) Another med Tegretol may help (Temporal lobe connection). Paxil, SSRI may decrease the obsessive intensity. small dose Haldol (haloperidol)

Does cycling with hand movement can help in reducing belly?

Exercise: I am stumped as to what you mean by 'hand movement' but this does not in any way sound like a valid exercise that would increase metabolism of excess calories.

Have I possibly broken a bone in my hand? Pain with every movement

Have I possibly broken a bone in my hand? Pain with every movement

Possible but how?: It is certainly possible to have a broken bone if you you had any significant injury. Without injury, broken bone is not likely and more possible a tendinitis of some type. If a joint is suddenly became swollen, mild redness, and very painful to move, then possibly gout etc...If the pain is that bad, check with your doc. In the meantime..Motrin/aleve may help with pain..Good luck.

Hi. Fell on ice 2 weeks ago. Landed on hand. Possible to have fractured it ? Hand is cold. Hurts with certain movements. Thank you

Sprain vs fracture: Without bruising, a frequent sign of a broken bone, a fracture is doubtful but not proven to be absent. Consider your hand is broken at the sorest spot until an x-ray proves that it is not. X-rays now-a-days are cheap, fast and accurate. I hope the x-rays are negative.

Bodyheavy sensation/almost paralyse triggered by hand movements subside w/rest 1-2min.Periodic paralysis/lakeofsleep? Vanishes for months sometimes

Bodyheavy sensation/almost paralyse triggered by hand movements subside w/rest 1-2min.Periodic paralysis/lakeofsleep? Vanishes for months sometimes

Worrisome: Paralysis is always a concerning symptom. I would recommend an examination by a primary care physician to do a full neurologic exam including deep tendon reflexes, grip strength, gait, muscle symmetry, etc. Given your age and no other history, I would want to rule out myasthenia gravis, among other common neuromuscular disorders possibly include blood work, imaging and EMG testing.

Sprain/strain: How long ago was injury? It sounds like you strained/strained your wrist (well, more correctly, a ligament/tendon/muscle). Cold packs are useful immediately after an injury. Since all other movements are ok, I'm less suspicious for fractures & dislocations. But if pain persists or gets worse or prevents you from doing your normal daily activities, I'd recommend seeing your Family Doc or Sports Med

Carpal tunnel issues: These symptoms would most likely be due to carpal tunnel syndrome. Repetitive work or other activities that involve much motion with your hands and forearms can foster it. An EMG is an accurate means of diagnosing. Treatments are very effective and include work modifications, physical therapy, medications, and surgery.

Problem in movement of finger of right hand. What to do with momentarily clicking/locking?

Problem in movement of finger of right hand. What to do with momentarily clicking/locking?

Trigger finger: This is due to contracture of a fibrous pulley for the finger muscle and occasionally a swelling of the tendon. It can be minimized by elevating the limb which allows gravity to drain the fluid. But sometimes needs treatment with steroid injection or surgical release. See your hand surgeon for evaluation and treatment.

Possibly serious: See a doctor there are possibly serious things but without the opportunity to do an examination i cannot say for sure.
