I have a tingling, warm and very uncomfortable sensation in my finger when I touch my phone. What could it be? I am very afraid it is due to the radiation from the phone.
Welcome to icliniq.com.
We are exposed to variable amounts of radiation from our cell phones. However, it is not strong enough to cause tingling and numbness or nerve damage. The only way to know if your phone is causing it is to abandon using it for a day or two and check if the symptoms still persist.
If it is only localized to the finger, then there can be a nerve compression or possible nerve damage which will self-heal in some time.
However most commonly, it is due to vitamin deficiency, and hence it is advisable to take any multivitamin supplement for a month.
Also, increase the vegetable intake in your diet.
Try avoiding the phone for some time, just to see if the sensation stops.
Keep taking the vitamin and watch out for any similar symptom in other places of the body.
If it does, get back to a general practitioner online --> https://www.icliniq.com/ask-a-doctor-online/general-practitioner
