Tingling down right arm, what could this be?

Carpal tunnel: It certainly could be carpal tunnel syndrome, a pinched nerve in your wrist which makes your fingers go numb. It may also be due a pinched nerve in your neck. See a hand surgeon for an examination and treatment.

I have a tingling sensation throughout my right arm as if I have bumped my funnybone. In the morning is when it is the worst.

I have a tingling sensation throughout my right arm as if I have bumped my funnybone. In the morning is when it is the worst.

The: The feeling when the "funnybone" is hit comes from the ulnar nerve, one of the three major nerves in the upper limb. Usually this feeling is felt most in the pinkie and ring finger, and on the pinkie side of the forearm. If the whole upper limb is affected by a similar feeling, the problem may involve part of the brain, spinal cord, or an interchange of nerves called the brachial plexus. Often, problems involving the spinal cord and brachial plexus involve not only a feeling, but also some weakness. A visit to a primary care doctor may start to sort things out.

Tingling and numbness in my right arm?

What causes tingling and numbness on right arm?

Depends. .: It could be from multiple sources. It could be related to compression of nerves stemming from the neck, armpit (axilla), elbow or (less likely) the wrist area. It could be a toxic/nutritional deficit effect on the sensory nerves, though this tends to affect both sides. It could be from a particular issue within a sensory area of the brain (exceptionally unlikely).

What does tingling and numbness in right arm mean?

What does tingling and numbness in right arm mean?

Tingling and numbnes: This usually has to do with a nerve at some ointment from where the nerve leaves the spinal canal until it inner ares the hand. Depending on what part of the hand is involved depends on which nerve it is. The best thing to do is see you doctor and he can order tests called Nerve Conduction tests that can see where the nerve is pinched and determine treatment from there.

What are the causes for numbness or tingling right under the right arm?

What are the causes for numbness or tingling right under the right arm?

Couple possibilities: Numbness under the arm could be the result of pressure over a nerve, pinched nerve in the neck or arm, or even muscle overuse/strain due to poor posture. If correcting posture/repositioning does not resolve the concern, that warrants an office visit, particularly if there is an associated lump or mass, or any arm weakness.

MY right arm has a tingling funny feeling and I am taking deep breaths and feel nervous?

Medical first: Tingling, deep breaths and nervous feelings suggest potential for panic symptoms or a panic attack. However, you should rule out medical or organic causes for the tingling, funny feelings in your arm before assuming psychological causes. Emergency or Urgent care centers are everywhere and can help assess your arm tingling and other symptoms and differentiate physical from mental causes.

Had a numbing & tingling sensation in all of right arm for 5 weeks. Gets unbearable if leave in certain positions and throbs deeply afterwards.?

Pinched nerve: One of your cervical vertebral discs may be pressing on your nerves to cause this pain. You should see your GP urgently to get the required imaging studies to make a definitive diagnosis. The good news is that in most such cases, a consistent regimen of physical therapy is curative:)

Tingling and numbness in right arm and hand?

Tingling and numbness in right arm and hand?

Be seen: The most likely cause is a cervical Radiculopathy, which is basically a pinched nerve in the neck. But because of the association of cardiac disease and left shoulder and arm complaints, you would be well served to be seen. Peripheral nerve entrapment syndromes such as carpal tunnel syndrome are also a possible cause.

Feeling numbness/tingling right side of face& body for almost a day. What can be causing this? I felt a pinch on right arm when it started.

Feeling numbness/tingling right side of face& body for almost a day. What can be causing this? I felt a pinch on right arm when it started.

Need to see Dr.: You are young, so this is reassuring. However, when your face is involved, it suggests that you are having something happening in your brain, not in your neck as could cause just arm tingling. Ever had migraines? Sometimes you can have other migraine symptoms without pain. The worrisome concern would be a stroke or other spot in the brain. You need to have an exam and maybe a brain scan.
