Wife having tingling and numbness in her hands
Robert0917 posted:

Posting a question for my wife.

Not sure if this is the proper forum but it's the closest I could find!

She is having tingling and numbness in her hands, mostly during the night (it is waking her up) and in the morning.

"It seems better when I am getting exercise (walking). I sometimes have the symptoms when I am using a computer mouse. I also have been doing repetitive lab work for years but most of my pipettes/equipment are ergonomically designed and I don't usually have the symptoms while I am pipetting. I do have symptoms sometimes if I am twisting off test tube caps with one hand."

Just wondering if someone can pass along some ideas.

Thank you!

The best idea we can pass along as that your wife needs to discuss this with her doctor. There are a number of conditions that could be causing these symptoms such as problems with discs in her neck or carpal tunnel syndrome. Only her doctor can evaluate her and treat her effectively.

Sorry, should have added we can bypass our Family doctor with personal choice so she would like to know what type of specialist to start with?
davedsel57 replied to Robert0917's response:
Your family doctor is the best one to determine which type of specialist to see after examining your wife. One of the Health Experts assigned to this WebMD Pain Management community may reply and offer their opinion. Most of us are not doctors and would not be able to accurately make that determination from your post.
