Brief Answer:
Bilateral carpal tunnel syndrome most likely

Detailed Answer:
Hello and thanks for using HealthcareMagic.

I have read your question and understand your concerns.

Bilateral carpal tunnel syndrome should be taken in consideration and evaluated further in your case.

Medical examination by a Neurosurgeon and nerve conduction study of both arms are necessary.

If diagnosis is confirmed, surgical decompression of median nerve is necessary.

Hope you found the answer helpful. Let me know if I can assist you futher.

Kind regards.

I had Neck surgery June 2, 2014 due to pinching of C8 nerve bundle and ulnar nerve challenges on the right arm and hand. My right hand continues to be numb on the lift side of the palm, small finger, and half of the ring finger. Not too surprising as carpal tunnel developing is an issue. What is new is a tearing sensation on the upper back of my left shoulder. My right side feels stronger from shoulder to elbow. No nerve pain under right shoulder blade. Just concerned about left shoulder or just give it time? My next appointment with surgeon s PA is 6/23/2014.
