Do you have swelling over the legs as well ?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Just some around my ankles in just very nervous because my hands are red and fingers tingling and filling numb am I in any great danger.
Expert:  Dr. Pravin replied 1 year ago.

No , you are not in any grave danger for sure.

Red and tingling sensation and feeling of the numbness on the hands is a sign of some peripheral neurological dysfunction.

This is not going to put your life in grave danger.

This can be due to the spinal nerve degeneration , autoimmune conditions like a scleroderma' raynauds disease which would need medical intervention like blood work up like autoantibody testing and medications.

Please do let me know if you have any further queries.

I'm worried about the indentations that stays in my fingers but goes away after a while what might be the cause if this will I get gangrene very worried
Expert:  Dr. Pravin replied 1 year ago.

Thank you very much for your query.

This is definitely not gangrene.

The indentation is a sign of edema ( water retention )

It can happen due to anemia , protein deficiency or other conditions like kidney and cardiac issues.

Please do get back to me in case of any further queries.
