Cardiologist 's  Response
Hello,

I would explain that your symptoms could be related to a pinched nerve or carpal tunnel syndrome, not related to the heart stents.

For this reason, I would recommend consulting with a neurologist for a careful physical exam and performing nerve conduction studies, in order to examine your nerves.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Ilir Sharka, Cardiologist
