I remember one area they call the quadrangle space is one area for entrapment. Would an mri be what they would do to show where the problem is?

Sounds like Thoracic outlet syndrome. There are many tests but one of them is raising arms up in a field goal posture. Then therapist checks radial pulse and symptoms. The brachial plexus can get entrapped in 5 areas, some nerves and venous structures.
This is something I will have to check out more. Thanks.

Id think an orthopedic doctor would be best, or see an Osteopathic doctor. The medical school I took my classes at was Osteopathic and they are good at this sort of thing.

Carpel tunnel effects the radial nerve while cubital tunnel effects the ulnar nerve. It you are having numbness about the wrist it could be from your shoulder or neck.

Yeah, CTS if first three finger are numb is the norm but I have met people who had gotten relief from carpel tunnel release for all fingers. Sometimes the body does not follow the text book. I would go to see an orthopedic doctor, hand specialist or spine specialist. Maybe start with your Primary car doc first. Any doc would do an exam and a good examination of your body can weed out what it may be and then you could get a test as well like an EMG which test the function of nerves and also helps to confirm where the source of nerve irritation is located.

A poor man test is to ice your wrist/palm junction after you excite the symptoms and then see if they resolve with icing the carpel tunnel area. You could also ice you neck another time and see what happens. Very rudimentary but it can be an indicator.

Hi all, this has been a bother for several years and seems to get worse with age.

My hands become numb and my fingers tingle fairly quickly when my hands are above my elbows, i.e less than a right angle to my upper arms.
If I drop my hands it will clear quickly, almost as if there is a blood flow restriction.

This is is more irritating now as I have been working from home since Feb 2020 and I don't have the adjustable desk and chair I have in the office.

I'm not on GH, and not watery at all. I don't think it is CTS, but my mother did have a CTS operation, though at 74.
According to DNA reports I might have issues with B12, so I am supplementing more systematically (daily methyl b12 sublingual, 3000mcg) and considering injectable.

Does anyone have similar issues and mitigated or resolved them effectively?
Numb hands are often a B vitamin deficiency. Check your multivitamin and make sure it contains the methylated forms of the B vitamins. Using too much of a particular B vitamin can lower your other B vitamins so I wouldn't take a huge dose of any of them.

That is actually what I m focused on at the moment.

My DNA methylation report has lots of potential B12 issues, and I also have SIBO which can impact B12 absorption.

I take 3000mcg methylb12 sublingual daily. I'm also considering injectable as I can get it easy.

I used to have this problem when I wasn't taking a multivitamin or b complex. I would wake up and do fasted cardio and one of my hands and even lips would start going numb. As soon as I started taking a quality multivitamin with a full spectrum methylated b complex, I never had that issue again.

Hopefully you can solve the B12 situation as that is definitely a strong contender as to why you're having this problem. I actually have the opposite problem where I'm genetically pre-disposed to high B12. Other B vitamin deficiencies can cause it too, as well as calcium and magnesium deficiencies.

Nope actually it’s always in wrist and hands 99% of the time. Usually mistaken for carpel tunnel. The nerves in innervate everything below. It’s like a lumbar disc issue impinging nerves. 99% if the time can be in butt, usually behind the the knee and foot.
This makes sense as when I compressed a cervicle disk doing calf raises with a heavy dumbell in my right arm, that disk pinched a nerve and there was tingling and even pain that radiated across my shoulder, across my rear delt, down my tricep, outer forearm, right out my pinky finger. It corrected itself but until the inflammation decreased, it quite sucked.

How do you know the correct dosage? Is there a method you use to figure that out? I have to be very careful with B12 due to low side of normal Fe levels (when I require therapeutic phlebotomy). Also B12 stimulates erythrocytosis which can further increase HCT.

But my numbers are great atm and B12 definitely gives me an increased sense of wellbeing which I absolutely love.

Honestly I am just going by feel, knowing it takes a while to feel any benefit. I take a b complex daily and the B12 at 3000mcg.
I don't take crazy does of anything and slowly, slowly make adjustments.
