Is This Peripheral Neuropathy?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I've noticed a few times over the past say 4-6 months that I'll get a tingling, itchy sensation on my right hand. It usually involves the skin on the back of my hand, my pinky finger mostly, sometimes the area near my wrist joint, sometimes my other fingers, but definitely most noticeable in the pinky. No pain. No numbness. Usually my hand will feel cold (but my hands and feet are always cold). I'll notice it most often when I'm driving or typing. I don't seem to have this sensation anywhere else, just the right hand. I was thinking carpal tunnel but descriptions of that seem to indicate it's more a thumb and fore finger issue and I don't notice any issues at night.

I have not been diagnosed yet with celiac (neg blood tests) and have been gluten free for just over 2 weeks.

Yes, it could be a neuropathy. It would be ulnar nerve rather than median nerve. You should have it checked out by a doctor.
