I get sharp pain from finger tip to chest, right beside shoulder that last for less than second. I also feel discomfort in chest area but no pain?

Nerve: This fleeting sharp pain has the characteristics of a pinched or irritable nerve. The location of the nerve may be in the neck or in the shoulder. A neurologist would be best qualified to diagnose and localize this symptom. You may want to wait to see if the problem resolves but if it persists or worsens, consult a neurologist who will order any appropriate tests in order to make a diagnosis.

What causes elbow pain and pain/weakness in bicep with sharp wrist pain and shooting finger pain? No diabetes had carpal tunnel realease 4months ago

Nerve compression: You may not have had carpal tunnel syndrome but rather pronator syndrome a more proximal level of compression. With biceps pain most likely location of compression would be the ligament of struthers. Follow up with your hand surgeon.

Sudden onset sharp pain at base of fingers in left had shooting up the middle and ring fingers. 46yo female dropped plate I was holding no control?

Nerve Injury: You may have pinched a a nerve in the hand or elbow called the ulnar nerve. This nerve supplies half the middle finger, ring finger and little finger. If it was sudden while you were doing something and went away no need for worry. If rapidly improving and NSAIDs can help. If it persists or is severe it could indicate damage to the nerve that should be evaluated. Very common, usually goes away.

Waking with fingers frozen in awkward position, sharp pain and swelling. It took a 2 minutes to move all of my fingers. What is this?

Nerve pain: If this happens occasionally you are likely sleeping on your midarm and causing decreased blood flow. This causes fingers to spasm, pins/needles from compression; this quickly resolves, does not return during day. Happens to people in a deep sleep. If it happens everytime you sleep, then have a doc exam

Minor nerve pain?: It can be very distressing to experience a new pain or bodily sensation, but no need to panic. You will experience many such aches and pains in life...it's part of being alive. Fortunately most of them will disappear as mysteriously as they arose. *It sounds like you may be having pain from a nerve in the finger. It's likely temporary. Take an OTC pain reliever and relax. If it persists >>See Dr

For four days I've woken up with sharp pain and numbness on the back right side of my head. One day I even had numbness on one of my left fingers?

For four days I've woken up with sharp pain and numbness on the back right side of my head. One day I even had numbness on one of my left fingers?

Get checked: The back of the head on the right and the left hand are not innervated by the same nerve, so it is unlikely that you have a pinched nerve. You should see a neurologist. Migraines can occasionally cause sensory symptoms such as hand numbness.

My right index finger hurts. I feel a sharp pain?

My right index finger hurts. I feel a sharp pain?

It depends: A finger may hurt because of arthritis, a small ganglion cyst, or trigger finger (tendinitis). It depends where it hurts, but a steroid injection can be very effective if rest or using warmth/cold or anti- inflammatory drugs don't work. If it keeps hurting you you may want to see a doctor and get an x-ray.
