What could be causing numbness and weakness in my left hand? I do have carpal tunnel syndrome, but this seems different, not as much pain, but a lot less sensation in my left hand.

Actually, : Actually, it's a myth that carpal tunnel syndrome is pain, particularly pain with typing. The hallmark symptom of carpal tunnel syndrome (cts) is numbness. Numbness in the thumb, index, long and half of the ring finger. The current best evidence is that cts is genetic (you we're going to get it no matter what you did) and--in my opinion--inevitably progressive. I warn my patients that surgery is necessary eventually to prevent numbness and weakness that it is permanent. Luckily the disease is very slowly progressive, so you should have some time to sort this out. ...Read more

The tip of my little finger on my left hand feels numb.  I thought it will go away but after 3 days still the numbness is there.  What is the cause.

Several causes: The tip of the little finger miss incinerated by the lunar nerve. At the elbow the lunar nerve is relatively shallow and exposed to trauma of various kinds. People call this the crazy bone, but injury to the lunar nerve is what happens. Also the small digital artery that supplies it if damaged can cause numbness, but then often the finger tip is blue, white. If it persists over a week see your doc. ...Read more
