Side effect: Carpal tunnel is a nerve injury to the median nerve that travels through the wrist. I do not know you symptoms prior to surgery but most often there is pain or numbness in the hand. Carpal tunnel release usually will help lessen the pain but can result in numbness in the area that was originally painful. It can improve with time. Can take up to a year to heal.

I have tingling and numbness on my outside thigh for 3 weeks. Only on one leg. No pain. Can I have it band syndrome with no pain?

Numbness right wrist 3" toward my elbow. Feels like I'm wearing a wrist band for tennis. What could be cause, ?

Ulnar nerve issue: With your hand palm up, if the numbness is on the inner side (close to your body) ulnar nerve issue is likely; if on the other side, median nerve issue is likely. Things like ganglions can occur there, compressing nerves and may not be easily felt. ...Read more

I'm having numbness two inches from my wrist toward my elbow. Feels like a tennis sweat band. What could be cause?

Doctor can evaluate: A primary care doctor or a dermatologist can examine the area to see if there is a problem with the skin. The doctors, and a neurologist, can check for nerve problems in those nerves coming out of the spinal cord, all the way to the numb area. A physical medicine and rehabilitation (physiatry) doctor can help find the cause, if there is a nerve or muscle problem. ...Read more

I have numbness and tingling in my left thigh and it feels like a rubber band is around my left groin which is worse during menstration. Caused by?

I have numbness and tingling in my left thigh and it feels like a rubber band is around my left groin which is worse during menstration. Caused by?

I would guess this is coming from your back.: The nerve supply for these areas comes out of the low back. You can be worse during your menstrual cycle because of the extra fluid and pelvic congestion will add pressure to the nerves. Sometimes the tingling on the thigh is specific to a nerve called the lateral femoral cutaneous nerve. It is fairly common with tight clothes or people employed that lean against the counter or have a heavy toolbelt. If it's really bothering you a lot you should go see your doctor and get checked out for the possibility of a lumbar disc. ...Read more

Why do I feel numbness in my hands and feet followed by crushing band sensation around my ribcage and weakness all when getting in sauna and or jacuzz?

Why do I feel numbness in my hands and feet followed by crushing band sensation around my ribcage and weakness all when getting in sauna and or jacuzz?

DUE TO HEAT: You should see a neurologist soon. The heat is bringing out neurological symptoms, which point to a problem in your spinal cord. Mri films of neck and thoracic spine should help. You may or may not have multiple sclerosis or other problems within the spinal cord. Get checked out, and if needed, start treatment. ...Read more

Dizziness, one sided numbness, one sided temp loss of function, uncontrollable body jerks, oligoclonal bands in CSF and serum. Neuro behcets or ms?

Dizziness, one sided numbness, one sided temp loss of function, uncontrollable body jerks, oligoclonal bands in CSF and serum. Neuro behcets or ms?

Suggest: The oligoclonal bands should be significantly increased in spinal fluid as contrasted to serum to be c/w multiple sclerosis, and some of your problems are likewise supportive of ms. However, do you have history of eye and skin problems more in keeping with behcets, and are MRI studies of both head and neck c/w ms? This should be fairly easy to sort out, and if ambiguous, perhaps a second opinion. ...Read more

I have numbness in my hands when I wake up from sleep. After a blood test doctor recommended a wrist band. Is it ok. What are the causes for it? Age24

The most common: Cause for your symptoms is SLEEPING ON YOUR HANDS! Be sure you are not.....It is possible than Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (nerve Pressure in your wrists) may be the culprit! If symptoms persist visit a Hand Specialist!
Hope this helps!

Is it normal to have pain in a band on top of foot just below toes and numbness, swelling in two little toes after sprained ankle?

Is it normal to have pain in a band on top of foot just below toes and numbness, swelling in two little toes after sprained ankle?

YES: Depending upon the severity of the sprain, swelling can extend to the foot. My question to you-without seeing a doctor, how can you be sure it's "just a sprain." Most ankle sprains, I think, are undertreated resulting in lingering problems. ...Read more

Left an elastic band tight around my little finger for about 4 hours. It was purple and numb. 24 hours after removing band, finger is still numb.

Left an elastic band tight around my little finger for about 4 hours. It was purple and numb. 24 hours after removing band, finger is still numb.

Likely transient pbm: You don't mention that your finger is still purple, and if not, you may recover all function. You likely cut off enough of the nourishment to the digital nerve that there will be a delay in recovery that can last days or might be long term. Use as a learning experience. Cut the blood supply to living tissue and you may lose it. ...Read more

Drunk+Xanax used rubber bands around ankles and put 85+ push pins in bottom of feet 4 3hrs. Days later Feet tingle tearing feeling when bent numb toe?

Drunk+Xanax used rubber bands around ankles and put 85+ push pins in bottom of feet 4 3hrs. Days later Feet tingle tearing feeling when bent numb toe?

It sounds to me like: You are in a great deal of emotional turmoil. The combination of alcohol and xanax (alprazolam) can be lethal in some people, or equally bad, can lead to respiratory depression, decreased oxygen, and brain damage. I am not sure what the push pins are for, I am assuming this is some kind of similar behavior to cutting, and if so it is another cry for help. See your doctor and/or a mental health professional!!! ...Read more
