Having fingers or even an entire arm that feels numb is something that one in ten people in the world have experienced. That prickly feeling might be temporary, the result of ordinary fatigue, or a sign of a more serious problem with a person’s health.
We have put together some important information that will help you understand what your body is trying to tell you when you get that tingling feeling.
Tiredness and fatigue
How it’s manifested: When we lift heavy items and place our wrists in uncomfortable poses, we raise the pressure on the nerves located close to the surface of the skin. This leads to a tingling sensation on the surface of all our fingers.
What to do: Be sure to get enough sleep and general rest; enjoy a massage.
A lack of vitamins
How it’s manifested: A lack of certain vitamins (such as vitamins E, B1, B6, and B12) can often cause a tingling sensation in the fingers of the left hand or in the left leg.
What to do: Work to restore the balance of vitamins in your body. It’s worth consulting a specialist to determine the right dose that you need as an excess of certain vitamins also has negative side effects.
