@afar Hello, Aching, tingling, numbness, and itching in the arms and hands can be benign or a symptom of an underlying disorder. These symptoms can suggest a systemic or neurologic cause. Carpal tunnel and ulnar nerve compression are common causes of arm pain. Carpal tunnel syndrome is caused by repetitive wrist movements, such as typing, that cause stress to the tendons and nerves in the wrist. Ulnar nerve compression is often caused by people who lean on their elbows or rest their forearms on the edge of their table. This can result in arm pain and numbness that radiates from the forearm to the ring and little finger. Also, Arm aches, tingling, numbness, and itching can also be a sign of arterial insufficiency or cardiac problems such as angina where the chest pain is often referred to as the arm. As the aching, tingling, numbness, and itching in your arm could be a sign of a serious medical condition, a full medical workup is warranted by your doctor to identify and treat the underlying cause. Thanks!
