Loss Of Sensation In Fingers

Recommended Posts

I am being tested for celiac disease because my son was diagnosed 4 months ago with celiac disease & DH. I have so many celiac disease symptoms that I am positive that I am celiac.

I have a problem that I am wondering if it is celiac disease related. I will try to explain. I am a typist and for the last year or so I miss letters when I am typing. I have to check everything I type because I will have lots of erros. (there I did it again for the 3rd time in this post) I know I am hitting the keys but maybe not hard enough. It is not my keyboard because it happens at work & home & even on the phone or fax. I have Osteoarthritis which I thought maybe was the cause. A co-worker suggested that maybe it was a loss of feeling in my fingers so that I am not hitting the keys hard enough. I was diagnosed with mild Carpal Tunnel and do get numbness in hand when holding the phone for a long time, etc.

Does anyone have that problem? Any ideas? Could it be celiac disease related?


Happy to be Gluten-Free!

With Celiac can come with some neurological symptoms. It was difficult to type also and my fingers would be all over the keyboard. Some B-12 and some folic acid seemed to help.

I would think that it's a deficiency of some kind. I would suggest a full metobolic panel to see where you may need suppliments.

HI

HAPPY TO SEE THIS POST

I get this also and my Dr just ordered these tests done and a metabolic panel. I mainly have no feeling on the tips of my right finger tips. Just thought it was from typing so much. Kinda like i have callouses on the ends of my fingers.

thanks ladies.

The numbness and tingling was definately an issue for me. I even had carpal tunnel surgery but after diagnosis realized that it was actually parathesias. For me the numbness progressed from just feet and hands to legs and bowel and bladder issues. This actually took a very, very long time as I had nerve issues from childhood. B12 was quite helpful although the diet was what really got rid of the issue.

Yes, I did have similar issues with my hands and fingers. Thankfully they seem to be resolved, after starting with magnesium and a sublingual methylcobalamin (B12) supplement.

Something tells me "carpel tunnel syndrome" is just as bad a diagnosis as IBS <_<
