Could I have trapped a nerve boxing? My left hand won't stop shaking

Could I have trapped a nerve boxing? My left hand won't stop shaking

I'd like to see it: Trapping nerves doesn't result in limbs "shaking." If you've pain you may've broken something. Fine tremulousness based on this is a possibility. Something a bit less good to have may be a simple partial seizure following a good whack the head. If you'd like to connect with me by webcam & show me what's going on that'd be best. Or go to an ER.

Similarly, a peripheral neuropathy prefers the lower extremities. ...Read more

stabbing pain in the palm of my left hand, no other symptoms, does not come from anywhere else. Been about 20 minutes. 41 yr old female. No injury?

It may be in irritat: it may be an irritated nerve. Can't say for sure where it would be coming from but someplace up the arm. Could even be as far up is it your neck.

Your physician will evaluate you, see if these issues are occurring, might recommend a splint for your wrist to start with, but you need a full evaluation for the best therapy. ...Read more

Hi I have caparl tunnel- like symptoms in my left hand. Do these symptoms appear with other conditions, or is it almost assuredly carpal tunnel?

Hi I have caparl tunnel- like symptoms in my left hand. Do these symptoms appear with other conditions, or is it almost assuredly carpal tunnel?

Yes, likely CTS.: If your symptoms involve only the median nerve, it is likely carpal tunnel but testing with Nerve Conduction Studies or Electromyography would help differentiate among other conditions that affect the nerves that originate from your back or from your muscles themselves. Approximately 65% of patients have bilateral symptoms of Carpal Tunnel. ...Read more

Hello. I'm having pain on my left shoulder, left side of the neck also I feel lke my left hand is getting heavier on me. Since yesterday. My bp was 100-60 n pulse was normal. Wut symptoms r these??

I'll start with...: ...the most serious possibility: angina or heart pain. Some people can have a heart attack w/o ever having chest pain. Second on my list is a pinched nerve in the neck causing pain and numbness along its track from the spine to the hand. Muscle spasms can also cause this type of pain. I'm glad your b/p & pulse were normal but that doesn't mean all is okay. Please get medical attention. ...Read more

Is weird numbness and tingling on the left side of your left hand a symptom of impending heart attack?

Is weird numbness and tingling on the left side of your left hand a symptom of impending heart attack?

Probably not: Arm pain that radiates (travels to) the hand and particularly the fingers is usually not heart related, but more likely to be a pinched nerve in the neck. The is referred to as as cervical neuropahy, if it comes from the spine, or brachial neuropathy, if it comes from lower down. I've seem this happen if someone leans heavily on crutches they have been using for a sprained knee. ...Read more

Severe neck pain and tingly pinky finger in left hand. No pain in arm. Is this radiculopathy? Had same symptoms right side 2 months ago.

Maybe: It's possible, but radiculopathy is not something you should try to self-diagnose. You need a thorough history and neurologic exam by an experienced clinician, and, if the doc thinks you need it, C-spine MRI and/or EMG/NCS. I can't tell from your post if this is benign or serious. You should have it checked out. ...Read more
