Fibromyalgia is known for causing pain throughout the body. Another symptom, however, is a feeling of numbness and/or tingling in the fingers and hands. This is often related to a misalignment of the vertebrae of the upper neck area. What are some other reasons for numbness and tingling?
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome: This occurs when the median nerve in the carpal tunnel becomes pinched and causes a tingling sensation in the hand, forearm, and wrist. Almost anyone can have this occur, but it seems to be more common in those who are typing at a computer all day.
Thoracic outlet syndrome: When the nerves and blood vessels located in the collarbone and first rib become compressed, this is the end result. Other symptoms include shoulder and neck pain.
Pinched nerve: Most people are familiar with a pinched nerve due to pressure on a particular nerve. It is important to note, however, that the pain and numbness felt can be far away from the source.
