I have left arm pain with numbness and tingling in my left pinky finger.

Agree: Agree that numbness and tingling in the pinky finger is likely a pinched nerve in the neck (c8) or injury to the ulnar nerve. Would suggest a physiatric or neurologic evaluation. May benefit from emg/ncv testing.

I have been getting frequent ocular migraines, and numbness and tingling in my left arm. Any idea what this could be?

I have been getting frequent ocular migraines, and numbness and tingling in my left arm. Any idea what this could be?

Migraines: The numbness in the left arm is concerning. If you are correct that your symptoms are ocular migraines, then the numbness is most likely a variant form of the migraine. If the same visual symptoms happen in the same sequence with numbness in the arm, then it is most likely ocular migraine with variant, if severe headache then classic migraine. See my response on triggers for migraines.

I have had numbness and tingling and pain in my hands for about 2 yrs now. It does it for no reason and now my left arm is starting to do the same.

Neck problem: Its most likely a neck problem. Depending on your age it could also be a brain problem. You need to see a neurolgist.

PRESSURE ON NERVES: Pain in neck radiating down the arm usually is from pressure on the nerves that originate from the neck you need to be evaluated by your doctor or an ortopedic specialist, you need exam and may need MRI exam to find the cause. You are only 34 years old so see your doc.

I have arm numbness and tingling in my left arm but also sometimes my right arm. My hand also feels like it wants to cripple up. I'm only 26 years old.

I have arm numbness and tingling in my left arm but also sometimes my right arm. My hand also feels like it wants to cripple up. I'm only 26 years old.

Arm numbness: Numbness in the arms often occurs from sleeping with the arms bent or working in a job with a lot of repetition. Other frequent causes include spinal stenosis or compression of the spinal cord. Diabetes, low B12 levels, and low thyroid function are common causes too. A neurological evaluation and a nerve conduction test can identify the cause of the numbness.

What would cause numbness and tingling n ur arms and legs?

Many things: One thing is a peripheral neuropathy, but that usually starts in the feet, later gets into the fingers. It's not really arms and legs, but more a "feet then hands" kind of thing. Certain meds can do it, too. Discuss with your doc if persistent and/or worsening.

My name is pat adams. I'm 47 years old and I'm experiencing numbness and tingling on my right side, arm, leg and foot as well.?

Pat: Visit your internist and let them examine you. I wonder if you have any back pain? Certainly, don't wait for this to get worse, an entire extremity is already a large area that likely should of been investigated already.
