  • It sounds to me like carpal tunnel, my mom had this and had a surgeon operate on her hands and it went away, she did it many years ago and they are still good

  • herniated disk in your neck, carpal tunnel syndrome, cubital tunnel syndrome... the list goes on and on.Either way it's caused by compression of a nerve. A Doc or PT needs to ID where that nerve is being compressed and then treatment is contingent on the cause.

    Way more info is need to even take a guess. Try this symptom checker...

  • You could have a pinched or herniated disk in your back. Go to the doctor.

  • Sounds like a disc issue stemming from your neck. Nothing was broken but things are most likely shifted or a disc is bulging - neither will show on an x-ray. If it's 2 years later it's probably not being caused by edema. One course of action is to see your Doc for a PT referral, a PT can treat this with some manual therapy, cervical traction, myofacial release techniques to re-align the facet joints of your neck to relieve the pressure on the nerve. Definitely see your doc for treatment!!

  • Pinched nerve, or something else. Hubby dealt with tingling in his fingers for a long time and the docs talked of surgery to alleviate some pressure/pinched nerve that they said they saw in xrays ... hubby switched bed pillows and the tingling went away; that was 9 years ago and the problem has never returned. I'd personally see a chiropractor before a general practitioner.
