Numb Fingers And Pain In Right Elbow Area?

I have a dr’s appt on tuesday, and I’m not using this for medical advice, but the last couple weeks I’ve had problems with both my hands going numb, and it’s hard to “wake them up”. Also, my right arm is KILLING me. The elbow area and upper arm area.

IDK what it is, it could be a pinched nerve, it could be carpal tunnel, it could be tennis elbow. I guess i’ll find out tuesday, but the only way I can describe the pain in my right arm is…sciatica on both sides of my arm, into my pinky & thumb. anyone else have these symptoms?

I’m wondering if i’ll have to see a specialist, i’m just in a ton of pain, so i’m going to stop typing & ice my elbow.

Thanks in advance!

    Most likely Carpal Tunnel. I have been diagnosed with the beginning stages and my symptoms are exactly the same. Good Luck. If it is throughly research any suggestions of surgical procedures before you have them. Be safe.

    Since you’re having numbness in both hands, it could also be a circulatory problem. The vein flow may not be good in that area for some reason. Glad you’re going to the doc. The elbow may be a pinch nerve, or you may have strained it. I did that to my elbow and it took several months for it to feel better. You could have hyper-extended it. Meaning you may have stretched the tendon/ligament the wrong way in that area. This is hard to heal but it will over a lot of time. Hope you feel better soon. 🙂

    You probably suffer from an Ulnar Neuritis or better called Draftsman’s elbow. see your chiropractor for an adjustment treatment and go to your doctor for medication to alleviate the blood flow circulation such as Trental pills. You will feel so much better. I should know cause I was like you in alot of pain but I feel 100% better.
