Middle finger pain and numbness

Common Questions and Answers about Middle finger pain and numbness


Avatar n tn Further, the majority of the numbness is on the tip and left side (side nearest the ring finger) of the upper middle finger rather than the right side. I've tried massaging, holding under both hot and cold water and it hasn't gone away. Is there a way for me to get rid of this, or do I need to go see a general doctor and have him refer me to a neurologist? Not sure how to proceed. Any advice or suggestions would be much appreciated. Thanks.
Avatar f tn I had CTS surgery 4 weeks ago which relieved the tingling and numbness in my thumb, index and middle finger. Prior to surgery I had numbness in all of my fingers on my right hand. They did an EMG and found loss to all my fingers. After surgery now both my ringfinger, little finger and that outer side of my hand are totally numb. I am also experiencing pain in the palm of my hand so bad that I have to take Ultram or Hydracodone.
Avatar n tn although, I am absolutely unable to do things like, crochet, because the middle finger and ring finger go completely numb, and at times, all of the fingers. I also find, when bike riding or riding a 4 wheeler or jet skiing, that the angle of the hand, wrist, back, that my whole hand goes numb. I hope you are able to get some relief. My husband has had a ruptured disc and has gone on some nerve pain relieving prescriptions, as well.
Avatar n tn You are right in thinking that you might be having Carpel Tunnel Syndrome (CTS) and now since you are having pain and numbness in middle finger too, suggests that it is indeed due to CTS. Yes your numbness is what causing wrist pain and you should be getting an MR study done which would identify soft tissue problem if any. Peripheral nerve grows at the rate of 1mm/day if they are not been crushed or injured completely. Keep me posted if you have any queries. Bye.
Avatar n tn I try feeling a vein in my other finger but cant find one. This is the first time it happen, and the left hand middle finger is the only place its happening. So please tell what i should do, in order to get rid of this numbness in my finger.
Avatar n tn He prescribed meloxicam, which helps the shoulder pain, but finger weakness is still present. In the last week and a half I have developed a numbness in the fingers of my left hand, like my hand is asleep. It is not a constant problem and sometimes goes away, but returns when the fingers are not active. What could this be and who should I see now?
Avatar m tn was interesting to read your article, i sometimes get my right hand that goes freezing cold, and i get numbness in the tips of my figers, and shooting pain up my thumb. i have just been diagnosed with peripheral neuropathy, i have the problem in both feet and hands, which they call glove and sock syndrome, may be interesting if you have just the glove syndrome. it does sound to me, although i am not a doctor, it is from the nerves, neuro, or circulatory.
Avatar m tn You are able to shake it around and get the circulation to return to the area but if the nerve gets pinched off too long or remains pinched it blocks the circulation from being able to return and you have the numbness and pain, and can have nerve damage as a result. Continue to try to move it around, and roll and stretch your neck maybe you can eventually stretch the areas enough to unpinch the nerve.
Avatar n tn I've had periodic shoulder pain and periodic numbness in my index and middle finger for about two weeks. It seems to be getting better. My question is, will I be doing harm if I exercise?
Avatar n tn Carpal Tunnel Syndrome causes problems in the thumb and two middle fingers, Pain will occur across the palm,and up the thumb. The pain weakens the grip causing you to drop things and causes pain when gripping things, typing or doing repetitive tasks. A nerve conduction study of the affected arm and hand will diagnose this. You will need a referral to either an orthopedist or a neurologist who specializes in this proceedure.
Avatar n tn I was just going to see if I could get some help on the pain I've had for the past year. Im 42 years old and I have severe pain in my neck/upperback and tingling and numbness in my right arm. I have been to many doctors and have recieved epidurals, acupuncture, massages, and other things and nothing has worked. This is what my MRI says: Severe multilevel disk desiccation.
Avatar f tn Hi, i've been having numbness and tingling in my right index and middle finger for about a week or so now. I've also noticed that my arm goes weak when I try to hold things (like a fork to eat or a cup of coffee) or when I write or type. I have to stop and shake my hand. The symptoms do not wake me up at night. I have worn a wrist brace on that hand for years and lately have worn it very tightly to avoid pain.
Avatar m tn I have carpal tunnel syndrome and trigger finger on both middle fingers. Why do my thumb, first two fingers go to sleep every time I use my hands?
Avatar n tn You can also have these symptoms like numbness in both hands, left palm burning, right middle finger pain with back / spine problems. Take an appointment near an orthopaedician. Take care!
Avatar m tn For the past 2 weeks I've had pain/soreness in my right middle finger (dominant hand), which occurs usually when bending or flexing. The problem began distinctly when I woke up one morning with this unusual pain. It doesn't hurt when the finger is at rest, and none of the other fingers hurt at all, it's only the middle finger. The finger itself is not swollen or any different in appearance to the middle finger on my left hand.
Avatar m tn However CT usually more than just finger pain. It comes with tingling, numbness and the pain is most often in your little or ring finger - along with weakness and stiffness in the wrists. So I doubt it's CT. If you can press on a "finger muscle" and it makes your pain worse or better it may be muscle related - or tendon. Raynaud's phenomenon would have more symptoms such a discoloration and usually pain in your other digits.
571524 tn?1217623804 He had multiple surgeries after returning from overseas but 3 month's before he had his last one he lost all movement of the middle finger. He is Air Force Cop and needless to say injured hand again. In May of this year they removed his middle finger, bone and all up to his wrist. Now, here it is end of July and a week ago he started having severe numbness in his entire arm. Phantom pains get worse and he is in severe pain. The numbness will last anywhere from 10 to 20 minutes.
Avatar f tn I do stretching exercises daily, walk about 2 miles for circulation. Am now experience tingling in my arm and numbness in my middle finger. Read something is could be something about my C7. I have no idea what that is. Can you help me? Thanks. P.S. also do some extra shoulder exercises with small hand weights, such as rotating in circles both ways.
Avatar n tn The symptoms include range of motion pain, inability to throw, pain when hugging someone, tingling in the back of my hand and into the thumb, forefinger, and middle finger. I also experience some pain in my collar bone at the sternum. Does anyone have any ideas on what the issue(s) may be? Thank you.

Avatar n tn Numbness in tips of thumb, index finger, and sort of middle finger. Ibuprofen and Naprosyn didn't touch the pain. Neither hot nor cold helped. Went to the MD and the xrays show the disk spaces are ok. The MD diagnosed it as cervical myalgia and prescribed Ultram for the pain and made a referral to physical therapy. The thinking is it will resolve on its own, but PT would help "move it along.
Avatar n tn The time for the onset and full numbness to occur was less than 15 minutes. The short story is that although the numbness has decreased in intensity , and the back pain is much less severe, it has persisted for nearly 6 months now. There have not been times that it has disappeared. If I sit at my desk too long, my right buttock gets very numb, ankle feels like a tight band surrounds it, back of my right calf feels tight and more numb .
Avatar f tn Carpal tunnel syndrome is typically described as numbness of the index finger and middle finger. It usually also has sensory changes of the palm at the thumb, index and middle fingers, and the ring finger on the side near the middle finger. It is caused by compression/entrapment syndrome of the median nerve at the wrist. It usually results from excessive use of hands and occupational “microtrauma”. Other causes include hypothyroidism, amylodosis, and arthritis to name a few.
Avatar f tn I get pain down the middle of my upper arm, across my shoulder and into my neck. I get numbness in my thumb, middle finger and pointer finger. When this happens I always get a migraine. The migraine wont subside until the shoulder and neck stops feeling tight which can take days and days. Im not a doctor by a long shot but the migraines and finger numbness only happen when the thoracic area becomes really painful. Can anyone explain this to me please?
Avatar n tn The problems started during a long and stressful drive across the country. The numbness and pain is getting worse. I am having trouble sleeping and I wake up with swollen and numb hands every day. I can barely bend my fingers when I wake up in the morning. I have been to the doc, had x-rays, neuro test and MRI done. The diagnosis is spondylosis of 5,6 and 7. Also have some narrowing of the foramen. Can you tell me in simple English what this all means? Was prescribed neurontin and PT.
Avatar n tn Flash forward to 2 weeks ago when my thumb, index and middle fingers became numb. There is pain associated with this numbness. The pain shoots up to my shoulder and my fingers feel swollen. A really strange thing is that the top part of my arm also feels faintly numb while the bottom half of it does not. The opposite applies to my hand. The top part is not numb; the bottom part is faintly numb.
568812 tn?1379169394 Hi, The most probable cause of sudden finger and wrist pain is Carpal Tunnel syndrome. Carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS), or median neuropathy at the wrist, is a medical condition in which the median nerve is compressed at the wrist, leading to paresthesias, numbness and muscle weakness in the hand. It occurs mostly in people who work most of the time on computers or have a repetitive motion of the hand and wrist.
Avatar n tn I have a searing pain in my index, middle and ring fingers. It is accompanied by a twinge in both shoulders and in the middle of my spine. The pain occurs regularly at night when I lie down. I have some numbness that occurs during the day. The pain I experience at night interrupts my sleep and I have to get out of bed. What could this possibly be?
Avatar m tn the location of the pain is at the side of the finger tip, the side facing the middle finger. i ve no associated pain nor numbness with this sort of pain. i experince this pain sometimes without a direct contact of this finger with any object, sitting there and it hurts, ofcourse most times when it gets in contact with pressure on that point.
