I have pin and needles in my right hand (index finger & thumb) and up my arm that started while I was doing push-ups. Will this go away on its own?

I recommend taking a break from the pushups to see if nerve sensations slowly go away. Can take OTC Advil or Aleve (naproxen) to relieve discomfort. ...Read more

I would be concerned with a joint infection. If it becomes progressively red, swollen, and painful, I would have this evaluated immediately. If this has been a chronic and ongoing problem, it could indeed represent inflammatory arthritis. ...Read more
