Left hand swollen + pins & needles & numbness

"Dr. Google" isn't showing anything on this.I even went to the ER & they're baffled.Blood work is perfect.BP is perfect.Diet is clean,except for maybe a little extra sodium.I don't eat refined sugar & eat organic food.TBH my training has been lacking lately,but I don't think that would cause this.
I have a few vodka & seltzer drinks on Friday nights playing cards/darts/pool with the boys,but no more than three.I don't get drunk.I smoke weed once or twice a week too.

Taking:Test Cyp for TRT 150-200mgs a week dosed twice a week.

Daily:S4 50mgs dosed twice,Cialis 25mg from Sarmsx for PWO,Fish Oil,Tri-Flex from GNC,Nexium,Zyrtec,Vitamin D3 10000 iu's,Green Tea extract 1000mgs PWO,BCAAs,Organic Whey Protein w/almond milk.

My doc is referring me to a specialist but I figured I'd throw this out here to see if it's happened to anyone else.My left hand is swollen.It feels like it's inflamed & I have pins & needles in it as well as numbness in the finger tips.

Thanks for any input

About two months now.At first I thought it was the aromasin but I stopped it & it's still going on,so it was never the aromasin(although I do get weird sides from aromasin).There's a previous thread I started about that.

I SHOULD mention that I've recently went to UGLs for my TRT.Do you think they could be mixing it with anything that could be causing this & if that's the case why would it only be my left hand??

Sounds more like a stress injury... Do you lift heavy Bro.... I have an old injury and my left hand scaphoid and lunate bones are crushed.(no way of repairing other then putting steal rods in my hand).. So my hand swells up here and there.... but it all started with a little stress fracture... did you get your hand X-ray 'd

If it's only related to one hand, it tells me it's likely some type of injury or it could be some arthritis. Does it hurt at all when lifting or doing other things?

Not sure if it could be related, but you take 25mg of Cialis daily?!? That's a huge dose even for a 1 time use, let alone daily.... hope it's a typo?

Sounds like arthritis or possibly an injury to a cervical disc. It could also be your brachial plexus. So many different things can cause something like this, so I would definitely see a specialist.

No I don't lift particularly heavy.I mostly stick with sets of 8-12.I do have slight pain in both wrists though.


Posibly one reason...might be a stretch

That's interesting but my hand doesn't look anywhere near that bad.I seen that one earlier.The gout usually affects the feet & toes most of the time.

Yea I have wrist pain as well as most of my joints.I do have mild arthritis throughout my body from a lifetime of construction.I haven't injured this hand though as far as I can remember.

Still, doesn't it give you terrible headache / sinus pressure? I use it recreationally every now and then and even at 12.5 mg I feel some of those side effects.

I do have herniated discs in the L4,L5 & S1 area of my spine but I've had them since '97.That's really interesting you brought up the brachial plexus.I'm going to look further into that.Thanks

No I don't get any sides with Cialis.I do with Viagra though.

Sounds like a possible injury you might not be aware of either bone, or tendon and the inflammation may be putting pressure on the nerves. Complete speculation of course. Hope you feel better and get back in the game soon... if all else fails pour some "suck it up juice" on it. Jk

I would just see a specialist if this continues. It's related,to,one hand which tells me there's something going on there that can be fixed
