Hi All, As I have posted before I have a large protrusion at L5-S1 and a smaller problem at L3-L4, that they think might be causing my pain. I have been having a tingling in both of my legs for quite some time. It is mostly in my right leg. Over the last week or so, I have been having a feeling of slight numbness (tingling) in my right arm. This is mostly felt in my fingers, but it in the entire arm. I though this might have be a side effect of PT but I have not had any therapy for the past week (on my Dr's orders). This is starting to worry me. Has anyone else had this happen? I am supposed to go in tomorrow for a EMG test, hopefully he can tell me what is going on. That is if this hurricane stays away from my home.

All the best to everyone,

Tugs

      Two likely sources of the tingling may be Carpal Tunnel and a Cervical disc problem. An MRI should help show problems in your neck and an EMG can help determine which nerves are affected.
