Thumb pain caused by hard impact about three weeks ago but hasn't decreased I have a little swelling and get pain and numbness/tingling in thumb&wrist?

Depends: This really should be examined in person, and is not suited to a internet diagnosis. Depends on injury, was thumb jammed?

Suggest see md/orthopedist. Good luck. ...Read more

Possibly arm pain: A disc bulge at these levels can cause nerve irritation. C6 nerve pain can run down the arm on the thumb side and to the thumb. C7 nerve pain often involves the middle of the top of the forearm, wrist and the 2nd/3rd fingers. The scalp tingling is less likely to be from these disc issues. This could be occipital neuralgia.
