Random tingling in fingers

every now and then i will get some tingling and numbness on my pinky and ring fingers. its never happened when im pitching just most of the time in class. is this anything serious

This happens nearly all the time in my left pinky/ring fingers, especially when I take showers and it gets warmer. I think it is an indication of stress on the nerves or something which causes your fingers to get numb.

Good thing I pitch with my right arm… :roll:

Tingling in pinky and ring finger has to do with the “Teres Minor” part of your rotator cuff.

Maybe.

You need to get your elbow checked out.

Looseness in your elbow joint can put stress on the nerves that run through your elbow.

alright ill look into getting it checked out. anyways it hasnt happened in over a month so idk

i doubt its a rotator cuff problem, seeing as i hadnt thrown in about 4 months when it first happened. i also never have had shoulder pain or a tight pectoralis major. my arm only hurts after a good long toss or a start, but never in the shoulder, more in the bicep

The only thing is, you have to remember that all these muscles are attached and can have an effect on each other. If one muscle is weak compared to the surrounding muscles, it can throw everything off balance and cause pain somewhere.

What I’m saying is, just because the pain is in your bicep does not mean it’s not related to one of the rotator cuff muscles.

I had pain in my inner bicep too and after all the research I’ve done, I’m 95% sure it does have something to do with the rotator cuff, probably tendinitis. I’ve been doing a lot of different rotator cuff exercises and my arm is feeling much stronger after 2 weeks.

I hope to start throwing in a week or so to see how my arm reacts and if the pain is gone.

it is not a constant pain, just normal arm pain, like after i throw 85+ pitches. the next day or so its fine
