My thumb shakes when scrolling on cell, numbness in hands sleeping/awake, numbness tinglin in both hands in feet ...What is it?
Varies: There are a number of possibilities, I would not hesitate to be seen for a specific diagnosis. Numbness is a neurological symptom and a nerve conduction test can usually sort it out as well. The two most common causes are either a pinched nerve somewhere, with carpal tunnel syndrome being the most common that involves the thumb; or a neurological condition such as a neuropathy for example.

Metallic taste & tingling/numbness in both hands & feet. Blood tests(vitamin def., Lyme & thyroid) R normal. Waiting for MRI & EMG. What could this be?
Spinal symptoms: I agree that an MRI and EMG are the next studies needed. Your symptoms sound suspicious for spinal cord issues. You may need a spinal tap, looking for signs of inflammation. Myelitis is inflammation in the spine. A ganglionopathy can also cause these symptoms, particularly when taste is affected, with numbness. It's possible all your studies could be normal, but will need to be monitored
Perhaps: Sensory neuropathy is broken down into large fiber (loss of sensation, loss of proprioception) and small fiber (burning, tingling sensation). Most patient’s state the numbness starts at the tips of the toes and slowly works it way up the legs.

Hand numbness: A good way to determine the cause of hand numbness is to give this information to your medical provider (location, duration, mitigating factors) and if needed, have nerve conduction testing. Carpal tunnel syndrome is a common cause- feel free to learn about this while you are thinking about this.See 4 more doctor answers
Carpal Tunnel Syndro: Most numbness in the hand is from pressure on the median nerve at the wrist causing carpal tunnel syndrome. Most patients will have intermittent numbness at first, often at night or while reading or driving. Other causes can be cubital tunnel syndrome, diabetic neuropathy or other forms of neuropathy.See 1 more doctor answer
Altered sensation: The term numbness describes an altered sensation that can occur usually from either a neurological or vascular etiology. Some patients that have numbness have a complete inability to sense any object at all, where others may be able to sense but it is reduced. One example is neuropathy, in severe cases patients will be so numb they can not sense even if they step on a sharp nail.
Nerve compression: Numbness can occur from various reasons. Some potential causes include vitamin deficiency, nerve damage, nerve compression, alcohol over consumption, side effects of different medications, or as a result of different systemic medical conditions such as diabetes. Get evaluated by a professional to determine the diagnosis. Treatment is based on the diagnosis.See 1 more doctor answer
