...PCP...Urgent: He probably injured his hand while working with the screw driver and was not aware of it because of his Peripheral Neuropathy manifested by finger numbness, pins & needles Also by toes & heels burning & numb also. He should be checked out by PCP for Diabetes and other disorders that could cause these problems. Make it Urgent cos if he is Diabetic and has infection from Dirty Wound, not good.
