Brief Answer:
Yes, it is a minor issue.

Detailed Answer:
Thank you for getting back.

Numbness of finger tip is a minor issue and can occur due to mechanical pressure over the area while sitting or sleeping.

There is no need to worry about that.

I hope my reply has helped you.

I would be pleased to answer, if you have any follow up queries or if you require any further information.

Brief Answer:
You will get better soon.

Detailed Answer:
Thank you for getting back.

You would get better in the next few weeks.

Symptoms related to nerves may fluctuate on different days.

There are no medications to relieve the tinnitus, however, tinnitus maskers are available.

I'm wondering why doctor here was not able to diagnose nerve damage as you di, he just did not say anything and sent me to MRId
doctor
Answered by Dr. Sudhir Kumar 1 minute later
Brief Answer:
Depends on the symptoms.

Detailed Answer:
Thank you for getting back.

The diagnosis of nerve damage depends on your symptoms and its correlation with clinical findings on examination. MRI helps to find out any structural damage to any part of brain.

I am 51 years old male. one year back one day I suffered at my work place a moment of giddiness with a little loss of memory like forgetting the day and it s date and computer password etc. After 15 minutes of taking an antacid it came to normal. After that through investigations I was diagnosed with gall stone and spondilytes. I took medicines but not of much help. Now I feel pain in the neck muscles and with a little giddiness. Is it really a mere spondilytes or any thing related to nerve or brain ?

my 12 yr old daughter Alexis has had severe back pain, leg pain, neck pain, fatigue, shortness of breath and generally just feeling unwell for 2 months. All blood tests came back normal except for 2 Lyme titers which came back positive. However the dr feels this is a false positive and wants to run another test in 3 months. He doesn t want to start her on antibiotics.

I have a pins & needles feeling deep into my left armpit that radiates down the inside of my arm to my elbow, several times during the day. Occasionally while this is happening, i will also have burning pain in the same shoulder - rotator cuff area radiating down the outside of the arm to the elbow. When this happens suddenly and is intense it scares me into thinking I may be having a heart attack, but I don't have any other symptoms, no shortness of breath, no heavyness, no sweats, otherwise I am a healthy 51 year old female. I thought it could be a pinched nerve, but would it come on so suddenly, last for about 15 mins, then subside. This first happened 6 months ago and then again 2 weeks ago. I don't have any neck pain when this happens. Can you have a pinched nerve w/o neck pain?
