How Might Tingling Indicate Workplace Disc or Nerve Damage?

When someone experiences tingling in the hands or feet, it can be an indication of something minor or something serious, ranging from a simple vitamin deficiency to tumors on the spine to a spinal injury. These symptoms occur in children as well as adults. Whenever such symptoms persist, a full medical evaluation is in order. Your first task, then, is to seek the advice of a physician. If these symptoms are related to a workplace injury, you should also see another professional ― a disc injury lawyer in Springfield, MO.

WebMD discusses the broad variety of causes of tingling, which can include the following:

  • Nerve entrapment syndromes – Carpal tunnel syndrome and various palsies (involving the ulnar nerve, the peroneal nerve or the radial nerve)
  • Exposure to toxins – Industrial and environmental chemicals, as well as some medications, overload the body with such compounds as arsenic, mercury and thallium
  • Traumatic injury – Any compression or crushing of the skeletal system, including herniated discs

Each of these can be caused in the workplace, and each can be debilitating. At The Ryan E. Murphy Law Firm, LLC, our workers compensation attorney deals with cases occurring in the various industries — in physically demanding and sedentary settings, alike.

Disc injuries can go undetected by simple X-ray scans, but may be found via CT or MRI diagnostics. It is imperative that evidence be gathered to document a workplace injury when one occurs.
