Left and right hand tingling with some numbness

From my post L5 S1 fusion with diagnosis L4 nerve damage :)

So now I am experiencing alot more tingling in both my left and right hand. This of course is new and am wondering... is this indicative of L4 nerve damage as well?

Pesky nerve is going to drive me nuts.... Have been feeling the tingling over the past few weeks but now it is constant, from mid hands to the finger tips.

Any ideas or suggestions?


  • Hi,

    Typically radicular symptoms from the lumbar regions would be effective on the legs and radicular symptoms from the neck would effect the arms and hands. Google dermatone maps and you will see what nerves supply what areas of the body. Also you can check out the radiculopathy videos here. If your issues are related to you lumbar my guess is you have some thing else going on with your hands. But then I am no doctor and this would best be left to discuss with your doctors. But have a look at the dermatone map and you will see the corresponding body parts effected by each spinal nerve.
