Detailed Answer:
Hi Mam,

Welcome to HealthcareMagic .

The drugs you are taking for BP are unlikely to cause tingling in hand. I would suggest you to consult your doctor and rule out the cause of tingling if it persisit for more then 2 to 3days

commonly it is caused by wrong position of sleeping which reduces itself by one day. Other cause is vitamin b12 deficiency or presences of cervical rib compressing nerves.

Hope I have answered your query . If any further queries are there I would love to help.

I have a pulsatile mass in my neck, which was recently diagnosed as being a post-stenotic dilatation of the subclavian artery secondary to a pair of cervical ribs (only the right side is symptomatic).

I have been advised to have the right cervical rib removed and was wondering what the recovery time of the operation is and what the possible sequalae of having it removed would be?

Thanks very much

I have suffered with pain in my neck back and arms for many years and have had multiple surgeries with out relief. I have researched for a long time and finally am positive I have found what is wrong. I believe with my my heart I have TOS. I have the symptoms, tense upper back and neck muscles, severe muscle spasm, shooting pain from my neck / upper back down my arms to my fingers. I have burning nerve pain on the left side of my face and ear, sharp shooting down my arms with pins and needles. If I turn my head to the sides I see sots send can feel light headed. I have pain in the artery in my neck a under my upper arm and arm pit. My hands will feel ice cold and dis colored, sometimes pale it here s deep purple.. I have reviewed my previous ex rays and believe I have cervical ribs on both sides with my left side being worse. I need to know an experienced doctor to treat thus in the quad city Iowa area. Please help it is getting worse and I m struggling to work. Thank you
