I had a TBI 3 yrs ago. Left side paralyzed for 3 weeks. Occasionally my left arm tingles and goes weak and numb. Should I get this examined?
Depends on symptoms: If your left arm symptoms are worsening (i.e. you have them more often, or they are lasting longer when they occur), it could be something new. If the symptoms are getting less frequent or less severe, then it may be that the symptoms are residual from the prior TBI. You should probably have regular follow up (every 6-12 months at least) to monitor your progress. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Need exam : Several possibilities. There may be something in the breast or armpit like a cyst or lymph node. There may be a pinched nerve in the neck or arm.

Disc herniation?: These symptoms suggest that a nerve could be pinched in the cervical spine. A cta may not cover the suspected area. A MRI of the cervical spine would be useful. However, at your age and with those symptome, if confirmed, the most likely recommendation for a disc herniation would be to do nothing unless things worsen, i.e. Weakness and pain. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
No chest pain, left arm tingly, jaw hurts a little after 20 min of cardio. Can it be my neuropathy? Or cannot be something else? Heart test all good
Maybe: My question would be what are you doing with your arm and jaw while exercising? Using arms (perhaps elliptical, ergometer, or rowing machine) may bring out tingling. Also hyperventilation (would expect both hands). Clenching jaw, or jarring from running, may bring out jaw pain. If you have already been tested for heart problems and don't have any big risk factors, i would recommend analgesics. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Little finger numb..: The nerve supply to the little finger can be affected. A circulation issue can also account for numbness. Sometimes a simple bruise or contusion or a swollen finger can also make out feel "numb" or different when looking for nerve compression start at the finger and work your way up tot the neck any compression on any area can cause the finger to fell different. Although we generally use the word "numb" or numbness a true numb finger has no feeling at all. Maybe a better word is tingling to mean only a partial difference in sensation. Even a swollen joint from arthritis or a bruise to the finger can make the tip f a finger feel different. A swollen tendon or a trigger finger can also make the finger feel less normal. A contusion or bruise to the palm can affect the digital nerves that go to the finger. A site of compression can be a the wrist. The ulnar nerve at the wrist more commonly affects the little finger , but some people with carpal tunnel syndrome complain of little finger numbness even though we are not supposed to be "wired" that way. At the elbow the ulnar nerve continues up the arm and the inside of your elbow where you would think of your "funny bone" as residing is a site of compression that can give tingling in the little finger. Hoever usually little finger tingling from the ulnar nerve at the elbow will be accompanied by tingling on the top of the hand on the little finger side too. Finally a compressive site in the neck or at a lower cervical nerve root ( the lower part of your neck or cervical spine) can also give tingling as for circulation, there are a variety of systemic and localized conditions that affect circulation in the hand from ryanauds, a spasm of the blood vessels due to cold , to the decreased circulation ( and neve issues) of diabetes, to a disorder that is associated with trauma to the palm and interruption of normal hand circulation. Finally there are more severe conditions that can simulate 'numbness" in arm of exretemities that are indirectly related to nerve or circulation issues should one who has little finger numbness need to worry about all these things and more? The answer is yes and no. Thats for your health care provider to determine but if the numbness continues your should seek medical attention. From a hand or orthopedic surgeons perspective: a lot of those who have numbness in the little finger have cubital tunnel syndrome, which is a chronic compression of the ulnar nerve ( your funny bone) at the elbow in the meantime think about your arm position when you are sitting at the desk or kitchen table and typing, simply sitting and being on a keyboard both your hands rotated on the keys and the inside of your elbow resting on the table or table edge can also give tingling in the little finger! those who want to know more about cubital tunnel syndrome affecting the ulnar nerve can follow the link provided. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
