Watch and wait: As long as the issue is not debilitating, you may just watch and wait. If it does not get better in a week or two, you should consult a doctor.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats.

Can't rule out..: I'm not sure how old you are or if you have risk factors, but I'm not sure you could rule out a transient ischemic attack, or "mini stroke." These typically do not show up on imaging. Risk factors include high cholesterol, atherosclerotic disease, and high blood pressure. Talk to your doctor about it in more detail. ...Read more

An accident 3 years ago caused nerves in right hand and arm to be severed. Since then gone for one surgery. But today thumb kept twitching non stop?

An accident 3 years ago caused nerves in right hand and arm to be severed. Since then gone for one surgery. But today thumb kept twitching non stop?

TWITCHING: May be a sign of INNERVATION! (Nerve "coming back") Unfortunately, it can also occur with the ABSENCE of nerve connections! Your Surgeon can order an EMG\NCS (Probably a repeat since you very likely have had the study before)
Hope this helps
Good Luck

Hi for over a week now my finger next to my thumb on my right hand keeps on twitching like a jerking movement like it tightens and spasms. Age 35?

Spasm: Many possible causes. If it's just that one finger, you may be developing a trigger finger which may be able to be cured or significantly helped by a properly placed steroid injection. If you are having spasms in other muscles in your body, other potential causes may be an electrolyte imbalance (potassium, calcium) or the onset of a neurological disorder, so see a doctor. ...Read more

Pain in my neck then had pins and needles in right hand and constant nerve twitching with all my fingers?

Nerve: You may have a cervical radiculopathy or "pinched" nerve root in the neck. An emg/nerve conduction study can be helpful and is a test offered my most neurologists and physical medicine providers. As well, MRI of the c-spine can be helpful as well. Talk to your doctor. ...Read more

Usually benign: It's hard to make an exact diagnosis based purely on description but several things come to mind. Usually, this is benign & self limited (meaning it'll go away on its own). But, if not then, it merits workup by a neurologist so tests can be run. Diagnoses such as dystonia, metabolic imbalances, & even epilepsy are possible. Write me for a consult if you'd like: www.

Right hand pinky twitches when my hand is still I can control it just wondering what it might be. My diet is bad no multivitamin ideas? Thank you

Right hand pinky twitches when my hand is still I can control it just wondering what it might be. My diet is bad no multivitamin ideas? Thank you

The most likely: Explanation is pressure or inflammation of the nerve that provides movement and feeling to the pinky finger. Pressure anywhere along the path of the nerve (neck, elbow or wrist most commonly) can cause it. Altho I always recommend a healthy diet, it's unlikely that a poor diet is causing this and unlikely that taking a multivitamin would fix it. Hope this helps. Dr. Anne ...Read more

What does it mean when your right hand goes numb and so numb that it causes you to wake up from a dead sleep.?

Carpal tunnel: The most common cause would be carpal tunnel syndrome. The median nerve innervates the thumb, index finger and half the middle finger. It runs into the hand through a tunnel (called the carpal tunnel). If there is a bit of swelling of the tissues or if you bend your wrist while sleeping, the nerve gets pinched and causes numbness. There are some other possibilities, so get checked to be sure. ...Read more
