What causes muscle ache and numbness in the hands?

I have had carpal tunnel surgery on right hand. Left hand indicated that future surgery might be necessary. Recently I/ve been experiencing pains in both arms, anterior. Like muscles are bruised kind of aching pain. Have had increased tension manifesting in neck and shoulders. And finally, both hands are experiencing numbing episodes while trying to type, chop veggies, dig weeds.

Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

Probably you may be suffering from peripheral neuropathy or compressive neuropathy. Until examination is done through nerve conduction it is difficult to say what it is . Use vit b12 tablets daily. Get examined for serum vitamin b12deficincy and folic acid level or serum calcium or magnesium or nerve conduction studies may useful. If symptoms not improved please consult your doctor he will examine and treat you accordingly.

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