I get numb along the side of my hand from the pinky to the wrist...it can extend to the ring/middle finger...Is this Carpal tunnel syndrome?
How bad is my carpal tunnel if when my hand goes to sleep I get an itchy spot on my palm right below my first and middle fingers & hurts in my elbow?
If weakness = bad: Carpal tunnel syndrome can display a number of different symptoms including the ones you have described. It is "bad" in a prognostic sense if the symptoms include weakness of the muscles to the fingers and thumb of the affected hand. The more and longer you have weakness of the hand the less likely surgery is able to relieve the weakness. Pain is pain if frequent and worsening you do the math ;). ...Read more
I have pain in hands esp. Right hand - in thumb & middle finger. My thumb used to bend towards palm area of hand even when I am not working. Pain in elbow & in upper part of spine. Starting of my pain is from carpal tunnel area & now pain reaches to bicep
Prevention: I am not aware of any exercise that does this, but be aware that cts mostly is a cumulative trauma disorder, associated with repetitive flexion/extension of wrist due to keyboard work, assembly line work, etc. Might consider wrist pad for computer, might try wrist splints, at night, might supplement one b-100 complex daily, and avoid the above risks. ...Read more

Carpal tunnel: First I would ask you if carpal tunnel syndrome was diagnosed by physician or are you assuming this is what you have? If you do have Carpal tunnel and numbness is constant it is very likely time for surgery. This is especially true if you have tried splinting without success. You run the risk of permanent nerve damage. This is not terribly difficult or risky surgery. ...Read more
What could be cause of jolts of pain down fingers when hand gets cold. Have recently had carpal tunnel surgery.?
Nerves waking up: It could be several things, but its not unusual to have a flare up of pain after cts as sensation returns. It can also be caused by scar, post-operative inflammation, and over use. Try ice and anti-inflammatories like Aleve (naproxen) or advil. If it persists, a short course of supervised therapy may help, including de-sensitization exercises like working your handa dn fingers in a pot of dried beans. ...Read more
Can anyone in the panel tell me what can I do for numbness in my fingers from carpal tunnel? I'm very desperate cause its my r hand and I can't work.
Correct diagnosis?: For carpal tunnel syndrome, wrist splints, topical anti - inflammatories, physical therapy to change the mechanics/ergonomics that are causing the problem, and acupuncture can be helpful. If you have progressed to the point of weakness and EMG confirms diagnosis surgery is a possibility. See neurologist or physiatrist to confirm (other nerve irritation can cause similar symptoms.). ...Read more
I woke up twice this past week withy fingers tingling numb on right hand. Took a few minutes to go away. I've read it's possibly carpal tunnel?
This depends on which fingers were numb. If it was the thumb/index/middle fingers then it is likely carpal tunnel (pinching of a nerve in your wrist. If it was the ring and small fingers then it could be cubital tunnel syndrome (pinching of a nerve in your elbow).
It is also possible that you could have a pinched nerve in your neck (cervical spine) that caused radiating numbness to your fingers. ...Read more

Does pain in my left hand between my thumb and pointer fingers mean I have carpal tunnel? I tried a hand brace but no relief!
Arthritis: Pain between the thumb and index finger is most commonly from a joint called the basal joint also known as the first carpometacarpal joint. Depending upon your age it can be either a loose joint or possibly arthritis. I would have you see a hand surgeon to get x-rays and a full evaluation. ...Read more
Stiffness in little finger. Loss of grip strength. Sever pain in hand when little finger is pressured. Xray shows no abnormalities. Not Carpal tunnel.
I have symptoms of trigger finger in both hands, left more than right, carpal tunnel in left hand and numbness and tingling in the left. What can cau?
I have been diagnosed with carpal tunnel. The thumb and first two fingers on my right hand are going numb during the night. When I wake up and the blood starts flowing back I have excruciating pain. Can't this cause damage to my hand?
Yes.: Yes. Carpal tunnel syndrome is structural. A normal tunnel that tendons and nerves pass through to the hand is tighter or looser in individuals based on genetics--just like loose or tight joints. Those of us with tight tunnels gradually develop carpal tunnel syndrome. The end result is permanent nerve damage (weakness, atrophy, numbness). It's nothing you are doing that is causing this. You are just starting to notice that you have the disease. It is a very slowly progressive disease and you might be able to manage the symptoms with wrist splints at night for years. When you start getting numb in spite of the splints or when the numbness lingers for more than 5-10 minutes, then it's time to have surgery. ...Read more
The last few days my right hand on the left side on my wrist has been sore. Could it be carpal tunnel or more a strain. Fingers are fine?
Varies: It does not sound like carpal tunnel syndrome. Carpal tunnel syndrome is a compression of the median nerve in the wrist and usually causes pain or numbness into the thumb, index, and middle fingers. I would not hesitate to be seen if it does not get better. An exam and appropriate studies can usually determine the cause. ...Read more
Carpel tunnel what are the symptoms, I feel my left arm tingly numb and on my hand pinky and ring finger mostly numb. How do I get tested for this?
Little finger numb..:
The nerve supply to the little finger can be affected. A circulation issue can also account for numbness. Sometimes a simple bruise or contusion or a swollen finger can also make out feel "numb" or different
when looking for nerve compression start at the finger and work your way up tot the neck any compression on any area can cause the finger to fell different. Although we generally use the word "numb" or numbness a true numb finger has no feeling at all. Maybe a better word is tingling to mean only a partial difference in sensation.
Even a swollen joint from arthritis or a bruise to the finger can make the tip f a finger feel different. A swollen tendon or a trigger finger can also make the finger feel less normal.
A contusion or bruise to the palm can affect the digital nerves that go to the finger.
A site of compression can be a the wrist. The ulnar nerve at the wrist more commonly affects the little finger, but some people with carpal tunnel syndrome complain of little finger numbness even though we are not supposed to be "wired" that way.
At the elbow the ulnar nerve continues up the arm and the inside of your elbow where you would think of your "funny bone" as residing is a site of compression that can give tingling in the little finger. Hoever usually little finger tingling from the ulnar nerve at the elbow will be accompanied by tingling on the top of the hand on the little finger side too.
Finally a compressive site in the neck or at a lower cervical nerve root (the lower part of your neck or cervical spine) can also give tingling
as for circulation, there are a variety of systemic and localized conditions that affect circulation in the hand from ryanauds, a spasm of the blood vessels due to cold, to the decreased circulation (and neve issues) of diabetes, to a disorder that is associated with trauma to the palm and interruption of normal hand circulation.
Finally there are more severe conditions that can simulate 'numbness" in arm of exretemities that are indirectly related to nerve or circulation issues
should one who has little finger numbness need to worry about all these things and more? The answer is yes and no. That's for your health care provider to determine but if the numbness continues your should seek medical attention.
From a hand or orthopedic surgeons perspective: a lot of those who have numbness in the little finger have cubital tunnel syndrome, which is a chronic compression of the ulnar nerve
(your funny bone) at the elbow
in the meantime think about your arm position when you are sitting at the desk or kitchen table and typing, simply sitting and being on a keyboard both your hands rotated on the keys and the inside of your elbow resting on the table or table edge can also give tingling in the little finger!
