Slight tingle in left hand(pink&ring)tingles in left foot too/ clean blood work and cat scan! super nervous. I have been getting allergy/sinus headach?

Calm down: Don't let your nerves get the best of you. What body part got the cat scan and why? I would see an orthopedist since there is hand and foot involvement and let them conclude if you have isolated nerve compressions i.E carpal and tarsal tunner syndrome or some radiculpathy more proximally i.E the back, or some systemic disorder. I do not think the sinus headache is related. Feel better. ...Read more

I get tingle/numbness sensation in my left hand and pain/possible swelling in the right when I lay on my right side but not on left side or on back.

Neurologist: The problem which is positional, could be due to pinched nerves at the wrist(carpal tunnel syndrome) or impingement of a nerve or nerve root at the neck by a bulging disc or spur on a neck vertebra, but the latter conditions wouldn't affect both upper extremities. A neurologist is best qualified to evaluate you and order the appropriate tests. ...Read more

Pinched nerve?: The median nerve and the ulnar nerve are 2 nerves that run through your wrist to innervate your hand. If either of these get compressed (pinched) you can develop numbness or tingling or pain in your fingers. Sounds like you're doing this to your ulnar nerve. This is called Cubital Tunnel Syndrome. It it gets bad enough you could get permanent damage to your nerve. See your doctor soon. ...Read more

Severe neck pain and tingly pinky finger in left hand. No pain in arm. Is this radiculopathy? Had same symptoms right side 2 months ago.

Maybe: It's possible, but radiculopathy is not something you should try to self-diagnose. You need a thorough history and neurologic exam by an experienced clinician, and, if the doc thinks you need it, C-spine MRI and/or EMG/NCS. I can't tell from your post if this is benign or serious. You should have it checked out. ...Read more
