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

Neurological : Neurological problems that could cause numbness perceived in both hands include compression of the nerves that feel the hands (most commonly the median nerve, but possibly the ulnar nerve or the radial nerve) or the tributaries of these nerves (cervical nerve roots or brachial plexus), a problem involving the spinal cord (such as transverse myelitis), or some more abstract problems (such as hyperventilation or migraine aura). Similar feelings could also come from problems affecting blood vessels or blood chemistry. It is a good idea to get these kind of symptoms checked by a doctor. ...Read more
