What does pain from the elbows to the fingers indicate?

Off and on for the last year or so, I have had a pain that runs from my elbow down to my fingers. I have been experiencing numbness and tingling in my fingers now, and many times during the night I wake up and have no feeling in my arm and/or my hand and fingers. It comes and goes, but seems to be happening more often now and for longer stretches of time.

Hi

Welcome to HealthcareMagic
If you do not have any pain or stiffness in neck then undergo X-ray of the elbow as well. Also undergo lab test as serum uric acid , ESR and RA factor Please get examined by a orthopedic surgeon as he has to check for tennis elbow etc .
If you have any further query then you come back to HealthcareMagic ,
I will definitely help you.


With regards
