Since yesterday I feel tickling (not tingling !) in my left palm and fingers.
I am afraid that it' due to very very very fine fasciculation. I look very carefully at my palm and fingers when I feel this tickling and I can't see any muscle movement (even very fine).

Anybody with the same?

I had normal EMG, but not exactly in left palm.
Anyway, it's really strange feeling.

What you expierence might be a symptom carpal tunnel syndrom. I have both fasc. of my hands and carpal tunnel... both are unrelated. The fasc I noticed in my palm are the finest anywhere. (perhaps with the exception of my lips and feet)

My fascics in palm are also the finest. Maybe it's because muscles in palm are quite small???

Dzien Dobry Pole,

I believe there might be a connection between your sensations and the so-called Carpal-Tunnel syndsome. My father has Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, and was first diagnosed with BFS (I wad diagnosed second 8)).

Anyways, I also mean to say that the sensation you have in the palm of your hand, doesn´t necessarily have anything to do with BFS. I used to have a strange feeling in both my hands - especially in certain positions. And for instance, If I clapped my hands, for a whole hour or so afterwards, my palms wwould tickle.

Besides, getting ticklish and tingling sensations in the palm, and/OR around the mouth-area, is a C-L-A-S-S-I-C-A-L symptom of anxiety!

Best of everything,

Thanks for comment. Maybe it's really carpal tunel. How about your Polish girl-friend? What's her name?

Hi Marcin,

Yes, I think you should get checked up for a potential carpal-tunnel...It´s a lot more common and widespread than people think - and most important of all, it´s no biggie ;)

Well thanks for asking, my girlfriends name is Agnes, or in polish, Agnieszka. However she is not really polish, but swedish, and only moved to Poland in 94´ after her father got a job connecting swedish enterprises with Poland and vice versa. She is actually coming to live wih me here in Cph. in a few weeks, after I finally found her an apartement and a job in a bagel-shop :)

Best of wishes,
