I have this weird tingle on my left hand (more or less my pinky)

It happened when I woke up. It's this weird tingle that's been tingeing for about 2-3 hours. Does anybody know what this could be?

(I made sure I wasn't having a heart attack or stroke already...I didn't have any of those symptoms other than this tingle, thank God!)

  • Mine does that sometimes... since it happened after you woke up I would assume a pinched nerve, or you slept on your arm wrong

  • Sounds like carpal tunnel or de Quervain's tendinitis.

  • I'm not saying this is what it is, but tingling/numbness like that is a symptom of carpal tunnel. But it could also just be a pinched nerve or something. Has it ever happened before?

  • Maybe I've had it a couple other times, but it never hasted this long.

    It's annoying, I just want it to go away! haha

  • My hands would do that all the time when i was pregnant and my back was all screwed up. I would guess a pinched nerve in your back. Try doing some stretching.
