Can neuropathy affect just one hand? I have neuropathy in both feet, but I think I have neuropathy in just one hand. I had carpal tunnel release surgery on it in February and I am still having problems with my left hand. The tingling and numbness is the worse and it keeps me from falling asleep and wakes me up. I am on Gabapentin for my feet and I can only take so much of it due to side effects. When I was on a higher dose, the hand did not bother me as much. I sleep on my left side and was wondering if I may have a pinched nerve or something. Would it be best to see a neurologist? Any suggestions or thoughts would be appreciated.
