Tingly fingers

Postby Picklepudding » Sun Jun 02, 2013 11:32 am

I've woken up this morning with 3 fingers on my left hand all tingly. It's like the feeling you get if you hold your hand up for too long and if you put your hand down and shake it, it comes back to life. But no amount of shaking is making any difference. Does anyone else have this and is it fibro related?

With something new, strange, changing etc, it's always best to have it checked out as there could be something else causing the problem.

That sounds like Carpal Tunnel. I have suffered it since 1998, horrid it is.

See GP for help x

I also have the same feeling every morning for years sometimes its even a burning felling in my wrists :yikes:

I was checked for Carpal tunnel and found its wasn't that just another symptom of FM.
but I agree if its new you should get it checked as we are all different.


All the best

Yes, I get random tingling in my hands, feet, legs, arms. I have never had it officially checked out as I have just assumed it is part of the Fibro :(

I had it for years, checked foor carpul tunnel...negative

A few years later it got worse and in both hands, checked again for carpul tunnel......posotive

I had both hands operated on and now they are fine. The tingling had turned into numbness and burning in my arms.

Check with your GP, it could be numerous things

I have been getting this recently, not every day though, when i do get it it feels tingly and numb at the same time, if i touch something with the fingers affected its like getting an electric shock, spoke to the doctor when visited him about something else fibro related, he wanted to up my gabapentin but because i dont get it every day ive not up'd my dose..it goes away as quick as it comes, but annoyoing all the same. :-?

I get this too. My dr told me it was part of the neuropathy and was down to fibro. I do get a lot of symptoms that get put down to neuropathy, neurological symptoms. Have to say my new med tapentadol does seem to e helping with these symptoms
