Numb index finger tip

Common Questions and Answers about Numb index finger tip

finger

It has been 10 days and the numbness/tingling of the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>index</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>finger</span> has not gone away from the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>finger</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tip</span> and the right side of the finger. I also had some wrist pain as a result of the tiling process. Should I consult a doctor or will the numbness dissipate with time?
The underside of the middle joint of my left <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>index</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>finger</span> got pressed on really hard for an extended period of time (maybe 30 minutes), cutting off blood circulation to the finger. I won't go into the details of how this happened. The tip of this finger (from the last joint on but only on the right side close to the thumb) is now numb and has been for almost 3 days now. It tingles and has that pins and needles feeling. What might this be? Did I pinch the nerve or vein or something?
The pain in my upper back/lower neck came back really bad, as did the numbness in my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>index</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>finger</span> and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tip</span> of my right thumb. Turning my head does not seem to help. Doctor prescribed Vicodin and muscle relaxers, plus physical therapy. Since this is an HMO (Kaiser), Physical therapy was 6 weeks out. I went to a Chiropactor while waiting on PT. The Chiropractor took xrays and said my disc at one level (lower C or upper T?) was very narrow and told me there was nothing he could do.
The situation did not improve much, still not able to lie down and the pain starts shooting into my arm more and more - even when i up not lying down. Initially only the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tip</span> of my right <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>index</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>finger</span> was numb, now, my entire right index finger is numb and the pain in my neck is slightly better but the pain in my shoulder blade is still bad and still not able to lie down without pain shooting into my right arm.
My right arm looks bigger now and feels bigger. and the my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>index</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>finger</span> is numb and has some pain. When I cough, I want to jump out of my skin because the pain is awful in my left shoulder. I took so many meds, seen a family doc and a chiropractor and still in pain. I never had this problem or any other problems like this. 42 and for the most part healthy. What could this really be and how can I fix it?
i could hardly move the left shoulder. The thumb and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>index</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>finger</span> of the left hand had went numb on the way to the doctor. I was given pain killer, muscle relaxer, and ibprofen (which really helped) After a week or so i noticed I was unable to reach in the fridge and grab a bottle of juice and set it on the table. Now a month later i had a emg done but the results were normal? I think i have a neck problem that caused a shoulder problem.
This injury took place 4 days ago. Today, I started having numbness and tingling in the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tip</span> of my right <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>index</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>finger</span>? Any ideas on what's going on. Do I need to see a doctor? I'd really prefer to only go if there could be something serious going on...as I have two small children and I'm a stay at home mom w/ little outside help. Thank you!
For the last four weeks I have had a totally numb middle <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>finger</span> and for the last three weeks the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tip</span> of my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>index</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>finger</span> and my thumb are numb. I also have some pain in my inner arm and.elbow. I had c4-c7 surgey and last MRI -couple years ago- showed degeneration at c3and t1-2. My ortho surgeon and I elected to try to jut live with it. My quetion is do you think this could be coming from my neck or is it simply from CTS yet?
The first 24 hours, my entire pad of my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>finger</span> was numb. By the next day, it was only halfway numb. Today, it's just the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tip</span> of my finger that is numb. I was wondering could this be slight nerve damage? And--does temporary numbness in fingers last more than 48 hours? I, also, was wondering about, if there was a way to prevent this from happening again?
i sometimes lose circulation in my left <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>index</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>finger</span> from the middle knuckle to the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tip</span>. when this happens my finger turns white and goes numb. but only from the middle to the tip! i have to keep twisting and rubbing it to get it to go back to normal and this usually takes 5 to 10 minutes. it seems to be getting more frequent. i have asked my doctor and he seems to be not too concerned but i am. i had a wrist fusion about 7 years ago.
about 9 months ago i put i grinder threw my index finger at work im now getting pins and needles in the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tip</span> of it when i grip things and also when cold my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>finger</span> goes numb how long can this last .
He returned today and with my husbands request the doctor did not put the hard cast on but taped the pinky to the ring <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>finger</span> and then put a soft cast from the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tip</span> of his fingers to his elbow. My son fractured his hand playing baseball, went on to play in three more games with the fingers wrapped before we were able to get the first appointment. He states that there is no pain but there is bruising and a smal amount of swelling in the area between the two fingers. Finally, my question....
i first noticed it when i had my left hand bent, like holding up my head sitting on couch, my arm was going numb, so i would shake my arm and lay it straight, now i have constent numbness in my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>index</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>finger</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tip</span> as well as my middle and ring <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>finger</span>, now i have it in my toes, still left side....
The tip of my pinkie is still numb and the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>finger</span> itself is stiff as a carrot - very little movement. I'm very concerned about the lack of movement and the numbness at this point but the doctor and therapists are saying don't worry. We'll see in another month. I'm concerned about hearing stories of people that didn't start moving it right away vs. people that did and the significant difference in range of motion later on.
i have suffered from a similar condition. problem started with what looked like tiny blisters on my thumb and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>index</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>finger</span> (left hand). this has progressed to wrinkly look on thumb and first three fingers (left hand). apart from the fact it looks at bit funny it hadnt caused me any problems until two weeks ago when i started to lose sensitivity in those finger tips. spoke to my dermatologist when i was in gettin my moles checked and he tried to tell me i had excema. not likely!
Eventually when the flare was over I ended up with residual numbness in the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tip</span> of my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>index</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>finger</span> and the incurable itch that makes me want to cut the finger off, but that is for another post. So this was 20 months ago. My hand often goes tingly and comes back, but for the past 10 days, both my thumb and index finger go numb and are painfully tingly. This gets worse throughout the day and by the evening I am going insane. Sometimes my whole hand gets involved.
About 7 days ago I cut a chunk of the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tip</span> padding section of my right <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>index</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>finger</span>. It would not stop bleeding so i went to the doctor and he cleaned and dressed it with a pressure wrap along with giving me a tetannus shot. It felt pretty tight but I figured it needed to be so I went to bed and when I layed down there was quite a bit of pain. It felt better the next day but yet again when i went to bed it hurt again waking me.

Hello, for the past couple months, the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tip</span> of the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>index</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>finger</span> of my left hand (I am right-handed) has been overly sensitive to pressure. When I use my hand normally, my fingertip feels like I hit it with a hammer. When I rest my hand, the pain subsides in about an hour. I've also been waking up with pain in this finger. It feels slighty warm and I can see a very faint, small, light red mark under the skin of the side of the fingertip.
For the last few weeks, I've been having increasingly frequent sharp, stabbing pain under my fingernail on my left <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>index</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>finger</span>. It makes me wince every time. I also have a strange, semi-numb feeling on the palm side of that same fingertip. The fingernail looks nice and healthy. I've had a digital mucous cyst on my right index finger (which was removed surgically but is back almost as big). Both of these fingers have large bumps or swellings on them at the joint closest to the fingernail.
Hi Group, Last week for the first time my left <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>index</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>finger</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tip</span> went totally numb for about 10 min. Tonight about 15 min ago it happened to my right index finger. I am not dx yet, have 6 more tests to go thru, 2 this weekend, 2nd brain MRI and EMG. I plan on mentioning it to my doc, just curious if it's another symtom. Thanks as always.
had it before, it passed in 5 mins no problem. - BUT, after about 10 mins, the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tip</span> of my right <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>index</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>finger</span> became numb, from to <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tip</span> to the first knucle. not full numbness, nor mild, i can still feel hot water or pain if i press on it a little.
The pain is back after2 months , with pressure under thumbnail.and numbness in right thumb <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tip</span> and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>index</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>finger</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tip</span>., though i am doing the neck exercise as advised by neurologist, pl help me, i am worried.
Then later in the day, it was as though the tip of my right <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>index</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>finger</span> was getting poked. Vibrations in the bottoms of my feet, muscle twitching in my legs, arms and hands. Tingling in my left ear, burning in my spine, cramping in my ear cartlidge. My throat also went numb for a while today, probably about 2 hours. It was when I woke up from my nap. I slept for 3 hours, then I couldn't feel anything when I swallowed. This has happened before.
The thumb, middle, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>index</span> and half of the ring <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>finger</span> become numb, have tingling sensation or pain during pregnancy because the carpal tunnel at the wrist, through which nerves run, swells during pregnancy. The pressure causes these symptoms which could also spread to the hand, wrist and arm. The symptoms will go away after delivery. Meanwhile you could keep the arms raised on pillow at night.
