I get a numb or tingling feeling in the fingers of my left hand, any ideas what it could be?

Had it a day or two now.

    That is usually from a pinched nerve at the first thoracic or seventh cervical vertebrae -here the neck and the shoulders connect. This is usually caused by tension in the upper back (which anyone at a desk, computer, or retail register will get). Try a massage, gentle stretching, or a nice long bubble bath.

    I had this and automatically thought because it was my left side it was something to do with my heart, I got it checked out and my scan found I had a slipped disc in my neck and when it moved it trapped a nerve and that is why I got the tingling, best get it sorted

    It could be carpel tunnel syndrome. Or maybe a nerve problem if you've recently knocked your arm. I had this following a crack on the "funny bone". Should resolve in a few days time, if not see a doctor.

    Probably a pinched nerve in your elbow causing your fingers to be numb.

    Any other symptoms? Problems with eyesight or coordination? Any falls or unusual clumsiness? Get it checked by doctor - could be a number of things.

    usually tingling feeling means bad blood circulation but don't take my word for it ,go to your GP, a simple test should put your mind at rest

    could be to do with the nerves in the digits caused by doing the same action over and over again, see a DR, they will help you
