Neuropathy: Hi BWalton,
3 fingers and then the entire R hand with asleep feeling. I would go to ER if worsens could be stroke.
Otherwise a neurologist or orthopedic doctor would be the specialist that could help you. Possible carpal tunnel, cervical neuropathy are things that come to mind. Good question.
