6 year old feel weird tingling sensation in palm of hands/joints
Hello,

Was hoping someone could help me?  My 6 year old daughter has been complaining of weird sensations in both hands when she either bends her fingers or when she squeezes her hand.  She said it feels kinda like a tingling sensation.  It is worrying me a little bit so was wondering if anyone has ever heard of something like this?  Also if I put pressure going up her arm she says it hurts?  Any ideas?  She is a very healthy 6 year old no previous problems or falls.  Thank you!

What has she been using her hands/arms for , has she been playing any kind of nintendo or video games a lot, any sports that may have put pressure on the nerves in her hands.As she is also having arm pain I would get it checked out.

Hi,

No she doesn't play any sports currently, just ballet and tap and she doesn't really use her hands for that.  I didn't think of this before but she does play the Nintendo Wii but not more than 1 to 2 times per week for about a half hour at a time.  She is going to the doc tomorrow but was just wondering if anyone else has ever had an issue like this before.  I couldn't really find anything on the internet about it, everything just kept going to carpel tunnel but she couldn't possibly have that?  Anyway thanks for the response, its appreciated!

It may also be from growing pains, is she in good health otherwise, eating and drinking well, no stomach issues?
