For the past few weeks i have been feeling numbness and tingling in my right hand. Ot starts put at my fingertips and makes it way up toy wrist and my forearm. At first it was just when i was doing something with that hand like holding tge steering wheel or cutting vegetables but for the past two days it just randomly happens.

What cold it be? I read online carpal tunnel and lupus? I was tested a few years ago for lipus and it ce back negative. Although i have heard you have to be tested more than once cause it is very hard to detect.

That happens to me from bad circulation. Nothing serious.

Probably carpal tunnel. That's what my doc said mine is. (He also said it could be stress. Sometimes I get numbness and tingling in half my face and scalp and toes.)

Anxiety can cause it. Happens to me a lot. As a matter of fact, the right side of my face is tingling like crazy right now. I have General Anxiety Disorder.

I have it too and half my face goes "numb" sometimes. That sleepy feeling but I can still feel when I touch it

OP Ive had that happen- I did have a nerve issue in my neck, it got better with time. Have you hurt your neck at all? Even slept wrong

Depending on the position of your arms, it could also be ulnar neuritis.  The nerve that goes around the outside of your elbow can get irritated and that causes very similar symptoms to carpal tunnel.

Are your pinkie and ring fingers getting numb, or is it mostly your thumb, index and middle fingers?
