Iitchy hand?

Is an itchy hand one of the symptoms of cervical radiculopathy?

My right hand, which is on the side affected by the nerve impingement, occasionally itches, the base of the 4th finger in particular. I don't wear any jewelry on this hand.

I didn't think much of it until I saw someone mention itchiness, so I thought I would ask



  • I've also heard that an itchy palm means money is coming your way. I hope it means that instead. 'Course, my husband the Three Stooges freak, says it's because my hand is dirty. hah, hah, NOT!
  • Itching is essentially low-level pain which I believe can be a result of cervical radiculopathy. And I've heard that about the money, too, but the lottery still eludes me. Seems a shame to have the one and not the other, doesn't it?

  • Mine itch as well at times. It goes along with burning, painful etc.
  • I get what I call the "tingle" ichies! I get it on the top and bottom of my hand, mainly on the index and middle fingers of both hands now (post op C6/7) I akin it to when we get a hair on our skin, and you go to brush it away, then it gets a tickle feeling. It could be the beginning symptoms of radicular issues.
