What can cause neck pain and numbness in hands while sleeping. While working I have twisting of fingers and restless legs while resting.

Neck problems: It is very possible that the root if your numbness, tingling and lack of strength of upper extremities and hands is on the neck. High and hard pillows may exacerbate it while in bed. Make a consult to a chiropractor or medical doctor regarding your neck contracture and pain. Use a soft pillow or none at all. Relax your neck when you work at the office, using a tall seat whenever possible. ...Read more

I had Ant. cerv. discectomy in 2012. Pain and grinding sound in neck , fingers turn blue, numbness in hands and leg, pain in back going to left leg. ?

I had Ant. cerv. discectomy in 2012. Pain and grinding sound in neck , fingers turn blue, numbness in hands and leg, pain in back going to left leg. ?

Something else: symptoms in legs have nothing to do with your neck. the grinding is consistant most likely with bony scar tissue from the surgery, which is not a reason for repeat surgery. You need nerve studies to see if you have an underlying nerve disease (neuropathy). I would see a neurologist ...Read more

Is it possible for a ncv to miss nerve damage done in arms by gbs if main problem are my legs but do have marked numbness in hands and face? My ins. Only covered my arms to be done.

Is it possible for a ncv to miss nerve damage done in arms by gbs if main problem are my legs but do have marked numbness in hands and face? My ins. Only covered my arms to be done.

Rephrase but I think: You are asking about nerveconductiontests?I don't understand gbs.Nctests only measure damage to the large nerves in the nerve bundles. Those nerves handle touch, pressure. Thin nerves (pain) don't show up in these tests. Only a biopsy shows thin nerve damage &this is rarely done. ...Read more

My ANA levels are high i took the lupus test it was at a 5 but i still have pains , tingling, numbness in hands, feet, arms, legs. Told me fibromyalga

My ANA levels are high i took the lupus test it was at a 5 but i still have pains , tingling, numbness in hands, feet, arms, legs. Told me  fibromyalga

Question?: I am not sure what you are asking. The ANA is a screening test for lupus but can be seen in numerous other diseases and in people who have no disease. I assume the lupus test you mention is a dna antibody. This test does not have to positive to have lupus. Finally, about 30% of lupus patients also have fibromyalgia. See a rheumatologist if you have not done so already. ...Read more
