Left hand fingers tingling constantly for weeks. Tested negative for cts. Primarily right handed so don't think it's overuse? Anything to worry about?

Left hand fingers tingling constantly for weeks. Tested negative for cts. Primarily right handed so don't think it's overuse? Anything to worry about?

Must have some cause: If an EMG was performed and showed no peripheral nerve injury then one should consider a central cause. This is particularly true if you have any symptoms in your left leg or face. If an EMG was not performed then pay attention to the fingers involved as the ulnar nerve could be the source and affects the last two fingers of the hand. Please consider meeting with a neurologist to get an answer. ...Read more

Whenever : Whenever experiencing new symptoms, it is always best to be evaluated by a physician, as musculoskeletal symptoms (i.e. From muscle or nerve) can overlap visceral symptoms (i.e. Left arm tingling due heart issues). A physician would speak with you and examine you and correlate such to ensure appropriate diagnosis and treatment. If you are not experiencing any other symptoms that would suggest this is cardiac related (i.e. Right sided symptoms only, no breathing difficulty, no chest pain, no nausea/ vomiting, no palpitations), then this is more likely musculoskeletal. Typically pain in the trapezius with accompanying limb tingling can come from a few different sources: -myofascial pain is a condition in which one may have inflammation, tightness, pain in the fascia, which is the connective tissue that covers the muscles. This can hit muscles in isolation or in groups. This can also be associated with trigger points which are tight bands of tissue within the fascia that can cause referred symptoms (i.e. Tingling) in a specific distribution. -muscle strain, in which the muscle was overworked or strained. Would not usually account for the tingling and thus, may have two separate issues ongoing at the same time -cervical radiculopathy, or pinched nerve in the neck, that may cause such arm symptoms. Any muscles supplied by the involved nerve may go into spasm, thus causing pain in the trapezius area. Pinched nerves can come from a variety of sources, including a herniated disc. -carpal tunnel syndrome and other nerve conditions can also lead to hand tingling, but usually will not account for the arm tingling. Carpal tunnel involves the median nerve and typically hits the thumb, index and middle finger (sometimes the ring finger as well), while ulnar neuropathy generally hits the ring and pinkie fingers. There are a variety of causes for your complaints but i've touched on the more common musculoskeletal conditions. Treatment would vary depending on the cause. Furthermore, any physician would also need to know your medical history to ensure that treatment is safe for you at that time. ...Read more

From : From your description, it sounds like you are having some sort of vascular problem with your hands. You should see your primary care physician promptly as some of these can progress to damage the tissues in your fingers. Some people have raynaud's phenomenon which causes blood to be diverted from the hands to the body in response to small changes in temperature. Most people are able to manage their symptoms and keep their bodies warm to distribute more blood to the fingers. However, those symptoms tend to come and go rather than being constant. Some others have collagen vascular diseases, such as lupus, scleroderma, sarcoid, or crest syndrome, that cause "vasculitis" that limits blood flow to the fingers. These conditions can cause sores (ulcers) on the fingertips and sometimes loss of the fingertip. There are a variety of treatments for the fingers, including medications and injections, but controlling the underlying disease is more important. Other causes are emboli (blood clots blocking circulation) and peripheral vascular disease (similar to heart disease, but in the smaller blood vessels). The important thing is to get evaluated and treated before any tissue damage can occur. In a truly ischemic (no blood flow) finger, that may be hours! ...Read more

What would cause tingling in left thumb and index finger while on a brisk walk? Constant fear of heart attack.  Could this signal heart problems?

Highly unlikely: Your symptoms are atypical for coronary artery spasm or other forms of heart disease &i suspect the reason you are concerned is because it is on your left side which is where everyone focuses attention when it involves the heart. However, if you are worried or if there is a family history of heart disease then, your best bet is to ask your doctor for an opinion and an examination. ...Read more

You should see a physician to be examined and possibly have a stool specimen examined for parasites, including pin or roundworms. ...Read more
