Index and middle finger numb. Emg normal. Tricep painful when I push betwen tricep and bicep have numbness from there down arm to fingers.?

Could be C7 nerve: Tricep pain and pain in the index/middle fingers follow the C7 nerve and the EMG may have been performed too early to detect the problem. You should still have your dr. Get an MRI and look for C7 nerve root problems. If the MRI is negative but the pain persists, you may need a myelogram with post-myelogram ct of the cervical spine to look for abnormalities. A neurosurgeon should be able to help. ...Read more

Emg (electromyography) is a test of your muscles and nerves. It is typically performed along with nerve conduction studies (ncs).

Nerve conduction studies involve stimulating nerves ...Read more

NCV/EMG: Usually an NCV/EMG is done. It is not a structural test like an MRI, but rather checks the nerves themselves. It can help distinguish between a problem coming from the spine, the arms themselves (such as carpal and cubital tunnel syndromes), or more of a neurological condition such as in a neuropathy. ...Read more

I've had upper right arm tingling/pulsing sensations which has turned into ring/pinky finger numbness as well as hand numbness on that side.

Your post is just the beginning of a clinical history, not the end.

Random pain throughout the body, tingling in fingers and toes, numbness in arms had EMG it was normal what else could it be?

Systemic symptoms: The normal EMG may have ruled out a primary neuromuscular problem, but a vasculitis, neurological, or autoimmune disorder could be in play. Other causes could be endocrine (including diabetes), or even a panic disorder. I would suggest a thorough work up by your pediatrician or other primary care provider. ...Read more

Numbness from elbow down to hand with cramps/burning on fingers. I have a rug burning sensation by the elbows. Both hands. Pain on upper arm to.?

Ulnar nerves: Commonest cause of this is ulnar nerve compression at the elbow. Although most of the symptoms will be experienced in forearm and hands, some symptoms may be noted in upper arms. If the funny bone is tender to the touch this is the most likely case. Don't lean on your elbows. If elbows are swollen or red, get them examined. If your hand is weak, seek medical care soon. ...Read more

Could cervical issues cause extreme hand pain without arm pain. Only slight numbness, pain in palm, index finger knuckle, starting in other hand too?

Possibly: Yes, the nerves that supply your hand run through the neck and compression in the neck can therefore cause hand pain and/or numbness. The other main cause is a problem in the hand itself. Don't hesitate to be seen. A nerve conduction test can be helpful as well. ...Read more

Can hypothyroid present as finger numbness and stiffness, with slight decrease in reflexes in one arm? Such as if Synthroid (thyroxine) needs adjust in dose?

Unusual: Hypothyroidism can present as carpal tunnel syndrome, which can cause numbness in fingers. Reflexes become slowed in hypothyroidism, but should remain symmetric, so it should not occur in just one arm. It is easy to find out if you are on enough synthroid (thyroxine) by getting a free T4 and TSH level done. ...Read more
