I have strange tingling in the left hand, that I've been

Customer Question

I have strange tingling in the left hand, that I've been trying to get over for a couple of hours while I'm in bed: trying to move the fingers, rubbing the hand . It's partially without feeling. . Got up now, and moving around.
JA: Have you used any medication for the tingling?
Customer: No, never had such long lasting thing before, which makes me wonder if this a stroke? I'm a pianist by profession so I'm worried about it.
JA: The Doctor will be able to answer that. Have you seen a doctor about the tingling?
Customer: No, never had this for any length before.
JA: Thank you so much for your time. Finally, is there anything else in your medical history you think the Doctor should know?
Customer: I am 88 years. I take 5 pills in the morning and one at night.
