    Finger tips tingle, go numb

    Not sure if I hit a nerve while injecting delt . Mainly when arm hangs to my side I get a considerable amount of tingle/numbness. Has anyone else had this or heard anything about it, Ive had friends have happen with quad shots but never delts, Thanks.

    Yea man I actually get it pretty often. At first I thought that it was due to higher BP when I was on cycle, but now that I have been off cycle since september I am thinking the same thing. Sorry I can't help, just wanted to let you know you weren't the only one.

    Sounds like carpal tunnel to me. I have had it off and on for along time. Pretty common with weightlifting. If your thumb, index finger and the bird finger are going numb especially if you have your hand elevated like driving and also when you sleep probably carpal tunnel. A doc can easily diagnose it. The neck thing is probably not related to the hands but if you keep having problems you need to get to a doc.

    Water retention is a main culprit with numbness. When you retain water there is pressure placed on nerves. The increased pressure can cause sides as numbness and tingling on the finger tips. Blood pumps in the heart then back out as we all know. The body parts that are further away will be effected more so, i.e. Finger tips and sometimes toes.

    I for one dont retain much water but on cylces that I do I get a slight numbness in my fingers at times. If you notice once that water is dropped the numbness will go away. MOST OF THE TIME..............

    the same thing happened to be when i cycled....my forearm got very swollen from water retention and it was pressing my funny bone nerve so i would lose all feeling in my hand and it would be the worst pain...i just iced it for a few weeks and it went away...best to see a doctor about it though


    imagine having the feeling of hitting ur funny bone with a brick for an hour hahaha i drive standard too so i was shifting with left hand and steering with my knees at times

    I have been thinking about the same thing. I had some numbness in my fingers and the other day my toes when doing cardio. Maybe its the entire water retention. I am on test e 500mg and also creatine. I guess i will try and drink some more water.

    I actually went to the doc for that. She said that the tingling in my fingers was from my tris growing and pinching a nerve located almost in the armpit. She had me hold my left arm out to the side and took her thumb and fvckin plucked that nerve like a guitar string. HOLY SHIT! My whole fvckin hand went numb. You might want to play around with that as a possabiility.

    I've had the numbness before, not sure what caused it. As one other posted said, I think that it may be the start of carpel tunnel. It lasted on me for about 4-5 months, and then went away. It did bother me quite a bit when I was trying to sleep.

    I had carpal tunnel surgeries in 2004, If it is your thumb, index and middle finger, I would suggest getting nerve testing done for carpal tunnel. If it is you pinky and ring finger that usually indicates a problem with your neck. Better be safe than sorry and get that shit checked out, catch it early.
