Question Numbness in thumb

Hello everyone,

A few years ago, I was diagnosed with carpal tunnel in both hands. I have always experienced pain, but I have had very little numbness. Recently, the area below my thumb on my left hand has started to feel numb. Also, I had a bad tingling feeling when my hand would bend back. For example, if I was sitting down, and I used that hand to push myself up, I would feel a pins and needles type tingling that would throb from my wrist to my thumb. It would usually last for a minute or so. For the past couple of weeks, the tingling went away a bit, but the numbness is still there. It is even numb when i touch the skin below my thumb. Has anyone else experienced this? Can you give my some advice on what to do?

Thank you,

Sponsors Lightbulb
