Tingling Between Fingers
I have had tingling in the tips of my fingers, for at least half a year. Is it anything to be concerned about?
Maybe: If I were you I would want to know why this was occurring. It could be a variety of causes, one being something called Raynaud's phenomenon.There could also be a nerve impingement farther up in your arm (s) that would be concerning if it were occurring out of the blue. It may be something benign, but I would advise to see your doc and investigate it further to make sure nothing more serious is going on
My little and adjacent fingers have gone from tingling last week to now being painful. What is wrong, what can I do?
Ulnar nerve: It sounds like you may have a problem with your ulnar nerve. This nerve can get impinged if you are putting too much pressure not eh nerve - this usually happens by putting to much pressure on elbow. You can stop resting your elbow on arm rests and get an elbow pad on. I think you need to get in and get a full evaluated and check your nerve function. Good Luck
I notice that when I hold my phone for less then 5 mins. I start to get tingling sensation to my fingers. What is that?
Hi, I am feeling some tingling on my fingers on and off since a week. Before I can really register it stops. What's causing it. Help.
Possibilities are: The possibilities are neurological, vascular, paresthesias, and you will need a physician evaluation
Numbnesss tingling: Numbnesss and tingling can be caused by issues directly related to the hand, wrist and upper extremity but there can also be indirect or systemic issues that can cause this. While carpal tunnel syndrome is common and a hand surgeon or orthopedic surgeon takes care of this, the other issues, circulation, referred pain, neck causes, nerve issues not related to compression, other nerve compressionSee 1 more doctor answer
Many causes: If both hands at once, can be hyperventilation (breathing too fast when anxious), low blood pressure, alcohol abuse, diabetes, and other nerve diseases (neuropathies). One sided symptoms can be a pinched nerve in neck, low blood flow into arm from thoracic outlet syndrome. Should be seen by doctor to sort out the cause if persisting.
Carpal tunnel syndro: Carpal tunnel syndrome is the most likely. You should be evaluated and treated.
Possible CTS: You may be describing entrapment of the median nerve at the wrist, especially if the thumb, index, middle and ring finger are involved. You should discuss the problem with your doctor.

Wait: If this happens briefly then there is no need for treatment. If the symptoms persist or keep the recurring for weeks and months, then you need to see a neurologist. You probably will need your EMG study.
Finger tingling: Refers to altered sensation not quite numb which means no sensation It is the same type of feeling one feels when the finger first starts to falll asleep Tingling generally means the sensory nerves are working but to a lesser degree than normal whereas numbness implies a more severe. Problem. People often use the words numbness and tingling together nondpecifically to describe things.
