Tingling on upper arm, thumb, middle fingers. Undergone carpal tunnel decompression. Any ideas?

Hello there, I have recently undergone surgery for carpal tunnel decompression in my right hand and a year ago in my left for trigger thumb. I have now got tingling in my upper arm, forearm, thumb first and middle fingers on my left. I have no other symptoms and the tingling seems to come on randomly. Any ideas please? I am 62, relatively fit, vegetarian

Hi and welcome to HCM
Tingling on upper arm, thumb, middle fingers could be due to compression of nerve fibres. Compression could be at the level of cervical spine.I suggest you to consult an orthopaedician nearby for a detailed examination. You may get the X-ray/MRI of the area affected under his/her guidance.
I do hope that you have found something helpful and informative and I will be glad to answer any further query.
Take care.
