Lower back pain is another common symptom associated with many spinal issues, which may present as pain, numbness, or weakness in the legs or feet. Degeneration of intervertebral discs is one potential cause of lower back pain; when these discs become worn down over time due to aging or injury, they can compress nerves along the spine and lead to symptoms such as tingling and numbness in the extremities. Additionally, sciatica and spinal stenosis are other conditions characterized by lower back pain that may have similar neurological symptoms if not treated promptly.
Carpal tunnel syndrome is an entrapment neuropathy caused by pressure placed on the median nerve at its passageway within the carpal tunnel region inside our wrist area. This compression causes inflammation, often leading to numbness and tingling in the thumb (index finger), long fingers (middle finger), and inner palm side up towards the elbow area.
Ulnar nerve syndrome is another form of entrapment neuropathy that affects the ulnar nerve resulting in similar symptoms to carpal tunnel syndrome. Instead, pain, numbness, weakness, and tingling occur around the elbow joint area affecting the little (pinky) and ring fingers.
