Weakness In Left Hand

Good luck. ...Read more
Nerve symptoms: Might be due to carpal tunnel, nerve pinching at elbow (cubital tunnel), but also neck and shoulder may have problems. Sort out and confirm with your doc, and perhaps get confirmatory testing. Occas, bilat symptoms due to some medicines, and rarely an issue with cardiac disease (but over left arm, not the right). ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Unclear: what this could be, but if you are on oral contraceptives or have high blood pressure or have overexerted yourself, for example by power lifting, it could possibly represent a blood clot or another form of stroke. You should get an exam by a clinician to be sure it is not. Also if you have had any injury, your neck needs to be checked for any damage. Good luck! ...Read more
Intrinsic shoulder : Joint problem, such as rotator cuff tear or frozen shoulder joint may be present. The numbness could be indeed "shoulder hand syndrome" or maybe brachial plexus issue associated with the shoulder pain. Perhaps a parsonage turner syndrome or even a thoracic outlet syndrome if symptoms worsen on arm elevation. However, sounds like a mix of joint and plexus. See orthopedic surgeon first. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Shoulder problem: You describe parasthesias and autonomic changes of an upper extremity. You need to be checked for thoracic outlet syndrome. Perhaps you have predisposing joint hypermobility syndrome (jhs). See discussions on my chronic pain board at quora.Com. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Nerve root injury: One of the more common causes of your symptoms is a cervical nerve root injury called cervical radiculopathy. In a man of your age the cause is more likely to be osteoarthritis affecting the foramen (hole where the nerve root exits). The reports of numbness argues against an intrinsic shoulder problem and without antecedent trauma a brachial plexus lesion is unlikely. Please go see your doc. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Numbness/light pain in my left pinky and ring fingers, and side of hand. Maybe spreading elsewhere in hand. Fear of motor neuron disease.
Don't think so: Hi. What you're describing would be a sensory neuropathy, and given the distribution (ulnar nerve), I suspect it's a physical problem ,not metabolic. Motor neuron disease (aka ALS) only affects nerves to muscles, and leaves sensory nerves alone. I'm not a neurologist, but I feel safe in assuring you this is not motor neuron disease. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
