Hello ` At 52 Yrs Of Age , Male, I Work As A Yacht Carpenter Or Woodworker Were I Do Repetitive Work Duties. Last 2 Yrs It Started Out As Cronic Left Shoulder Pains When I Stretched It But Otherwise Ok,then It Got A Little Better On Its Own But Was Followed By Finger Tingling In One Hand Sometimes Both At Same Time. Fingers Will Tingle When Arm Is Bent And Then It Subsides When Arm Is Extended. So Its Like Tingling When Arm Is Bent A Short While Then Goes Away When Arm Is Extended. Is This Some Form Of Nerve Damage Related To Repetive Working Or Other Problems? Only Other Symtomsi Have Is Tiredness (lack Of Energy) Ear Ringing And Almost High Blood Pressure. No Medications Taken Or Other Excessive Habits.

  • might want to see a neurologist and have them examine the possibility of Multiple Sclerosis. Fatigue and numbness/tingling are two of my symptoms.
