I'm curious as to how i can get rid of finger numbness!?

Depends on: What it is from. The most common cause if it is in the thumb, index and/or middle fingers, is carpel tunnel syndrome.

Been taking vitamin b complex (125 ) for about 3 months now  notice tingling , numbness @ fingers. Is there something a can take to get rid of B6 fast?

Probably not from B6: Extensive evidence shows that it's unusual to have adverse effects from b6 unless one takes 600 mg a day or more, though there are rare reports of adverse effects with doses as low as 200 mg/day. 125 mg is not known to cause neuropathy. Your symptoms are probably not due to b6. B6 does not accumulate in the body so if you stop it you will eliminate it quickly. See a doc to assess the true cause. ...Read more
