Nerve compression.: This could be carpal tunnel, which is a compression of one of the nerves in the wrist, or it could be from pressure on the nerve at the elbow. It is less likely to come from your upper arm or neck (spinal cord). You should see an orthopedist or hand specialist to help with the diagnosis and treatment. ...Read more

Have external fixator in left wrist and left-sided numbness for hours after my avonex (interferon beta 1a) injection. Related? Can avonex (interferon beta 1a) cause infection in said situation

Explanation: If you just started Avonex (interferon beta 1a) for ms, may be transient ms flares after the first series of injections, which is not unexpected. Would be surprised if your injection caused any infection, and do not believe the external fixator relates at all. However, I have a very negative opinion of avonex, (interferon beta 1a) which does not work very well to stabilize ms, as all the other dmt's work far better. Talk with doctor. ...Read more

Weak : Weak pulse and bulging veins in one limb could indicate a serious problem with the blood vessels in that region. Such problems, which include something called arterial dissection and something called venous thrombosis, could threaten the limb or your life. These sort of symptoms should be evaluated right away. Problems with the large arteries and veins in the neck or in a limb are usually first tested with an ultrasound, using a probe placed on the skin. There is usually no discomfort involved. ...Read more

C.T.S.: Wrist pain and finger numbness in a fortyish male during sleep process suggests carpal tunnel syndrome (C.T.S.) median nerve impingement; aroused by wrist flexion during sleep. Wearing a cock-up wrist splint might alleviate symptoms and thereby support this diagnosis. A doctor can order electrodiagnostic studies to confirm. B-vitamins are reputed to be helpful, but this is likely anecdotal. ...Read more
