What Can Cause Swelling And Tingling Sensation On The Arm And Fingers?

Hello Dr. Rynne, My name is Allan, and I am having a problem with the median nerve related to my right arm (I looked it up). There seems to be a non painful swelling or something related to my tricep that causes a pinch on the median nerve. I feel tingling in my thumb and index finger that can be rather intense depending on the degree of pinching. I am not aware of any injury to my shoulder, arm, or hands. I have seemingly full range of motion without any pain. What could be causing this problem? Thank you.

Hello,

Consult a neurologist and get evaluated.

Detailed evaluation is required to find out the exact cause.

We have to rule out possible causes like peripheral neuropathy.

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