For about 8 weks I've been having tingling then numbness of myleft arm and hand. The numbness in my hand involves mainly the half of my hand to the left of my middle finger. It has gotten increasling worse although when I was swimming (which I havent done in a few weeks) it seemed to be getting better.
I am almost 53 years old and havent been to a doctor for a check-up in 14 years. And I don't want to go now.
I'd rather treat this myself. I have a machine that sends electrical currents into the body whereeven the pads are placed. Is there a certain muscle or area I should place the pads. There are two of them to be used at the same time.
Dee A. West P.S. I used to carry a very heavy purse over my shoulder. I quit doing this because I thought it might be the cause.
