Yoga poses caused tingling of hand+ twitching of finger. 3 week of yoga later symptom now less. Did it help or did I kill off the nerve?

Interesting: From your description and history, yoga was not harmful. You did not kill a nerve. Degenerative disc disease in a 26 year old man requires exercise, posture training and review of your lifestyle. Yoga with an instructor that understands your condition would normally be a good thing. Breathing properly during postures can change the pressure on your discs. Inversion postures recommended. ...Read more

Nerve (Definition)

The brain and spinal cord communicates with what is occurring in the internal organs and limbs by nerve fibers where are like electrical wires with insulation (myelin) and the "copper" (axon). Within brain and spinal cord these nerves connect to other nerves via synapses on both axons and dendrites. A nerve can carry information regarding sensations, and ...Read more

I have Coin size burning or tingling feeling on the right side of my lower back. Not sure if it's due to yoga practice. How to treat it?

Watch for Changes: Burning and tingling sensations could mean inflammation around a nerve. This could be from strained muscles related to yoga. I suggest you watch for signs of worsening sensation, pain, or the development of a rash. If that happens see your doctor for further evaluation. ...Read more

T7-t8 disc protrusion, radiating pain, tingling along left upper back, is yoga and weights contraindicated?

Contraindicated? Eh-: Hard to be sure without an exam but it seems enticing to say the symptoms are consistent with an observed anatomical defect. CONTRAINDICATED? I think that is better answered following a good eval by neurology & then, physical therapy. Instinctively, I think weights need to be limited but I believe yoga can be more "flexible? " shall we say? No pun intended! ...Read more

I did my first yoga session and had tingling, numbess and pain in my hands. Also a bit dizzy and a headache after. Is this normal? What could be cause?

Let ur teacher know: Numbness, tingling, and pain are not commonly associated with yoga. In fact, yoga is supposed to be pain-free, enjoyable, and relaxing. So you need to let your teacher know. So this doesn't happen again during your next class. Also the postures you might have done may have pinched a nerve, or created some type of discomfort from your neck down to your hand. If this persists, it's best to see your family dr. For medical advice. ...Read more

Former gymnast, now starting yoga. Numbness/tickle/tingle feeling waist down anytime I do a backbend. Never had this before. Possible pinched nerve?

Former gymnast, now starting yoga. Numbness/tickle/tingle feeling waist down anytime I do a backbend. Never had this before. Possible pinched nerve?

Possibly: It is possible that you could have nerve compression causing your symptoms that worsens with bending forward. However, there is usually accompanying pain, either in the back or legs or both. Also, in the case of spinal stenosis, nerve compression actually is relieved by bending forward. I would recommend an MRI as well as xrays with you leaning forward and backward. ...Read more

You can heal: If you are kind to your back and follow your doctors instructions we can hope you have healing of your disc herniation Surgery is the worst option in most cases but you are young and can heal quickly. If your pain does not get better after 6 months you may have to consider some medical treatments such as injections or acupuncture. But I would NOT advise surgery unless you have two doctors that ...Read more

I think I have a pinched nerve in my tailbone. I've been doing yoga and seeing chiropracter to help. Do I need an xray or other diagnostic services?

I think I have a pinched nerve in my tailbone. I've been doing yoga and seeing chiropracter to help. Do I need an xray or other diagnostic services?

No: If you are having weakness or tingling or numbness in your legs, imaging may be considered. Other red flags would be trouble with bowel or bladder, or fever. If you have not been evaluated by a physician, that might be worthwhile because that could also lead to a referral for a good physical therapist that is comfortable with the pelvis, hips and pelvic floor. That could really be helpful. ...Read more

Assume there is nerve pinch between thoracic and arm w/symptoms-arm pain & finger twitch & hand numb during sleep, will Bikram yoga help or worsen it?

Agree: Dr krauser urges you to put the cart before the horse and get diagnosed. Lots of push to get into alternative therapies by entrepreneurial promoters, but you need to know what is wrong, as things can get worse rather rapidly with certain activities. Sounds like you do have nerve issues, and consider thoracic outlet, but also more peripheral nerve issues. ...Read more

Nerve impingement: The legs and low back can be involved w/nerve impingement because the nerve gives feeling to those areas. So, depending on what nerve (s) are trapped, that pathway will experience pain. Glad you B 12 is now good. Ask doc or a natural doc about high dose Alpha Lipoic Acid which can help w/nerve issues. Peace and good health. As nerves calm pain can resolve. ...Read more

For six months now, I've had a weird, daily consistent, sensation in what seems to be my right ovary. It's like a tingling nerve feeling. I'm 42.?

Ultrasound: I would recommend you see your doctor for an ultrasound of the pelvis. That way, you can rule out any potential cause being from an ovary or the uterus. You would also need an exam and thorough history to point us in the right direction! It is good not to ignore persistent symptoms like these. ...Read more
