Intermittent pain and numbness in right hand, prominent on lying down, tingles on exhaling, eases on inhaling. What could it be?

I have been having pain and numbness in my right hand and arm for about three tears now. It comes and goes. But has become worse since I had my daughter two years ago. It is hurting again and I have notices when I lay down on my left side, it tingled and hurts when I exhale and seems to ease when I inhale. It is from my elbow to my ring and pinky fingers.

Hi welcome to Health care magic forum. You have got tingling sensation and numbness of right hand from elbow down, more to ring and pinky fingers since 3 years, increased since delevery of child 2years ago.It appears that it is a pressure symptom probably due to cervical spondylosis. Other causes are anaemia, neuritis due to hyper tension or diabetis.
I advise you to consult a physician for diagnosis and treatment, You may have to get the MRI, glucose tolerance test, etc besides other routine tests for confermation.
Besides i advise you to follow some diet recommendations as avoid taking more of potato, other tubers, tomato, coconut, cauli flower, egg, fish, sea foods as they tend to increase pain threshold. Avoid having pillow while sleeping. Wishing for a quick recovery, and thanks for calling.
