Nerve injury: You may have injured a nerve that controls sensation in your hand when you banged yourself up. I would guess that the ulnar nerve (your "funny bone") is the nerve that also go banged up. It may just be a concussion of the nerve and should go away in a few days. If it doesn't, speak with your neurologist. ...Read more

Need medical care: I see that you're on trazodone, dilaudid, and Klonopin (clonazepam) -- so it seems you have a doctor who prescribes these? Not feeling "right" for several days needs medical investigation. Have you missed doses of one of your meds after taking it regularly? It's hard to know what's happening with you, with so little info. Please see your doctor -- or visit a low-cost clinic: http://tinyurl.Com/kq66sew. ...Read more

Carpal tunnel: It certainly could be carpal tunnel syndrome, a pinched nerve in your wrist which makes your fingers go numb. See a hand surgeon for an examination and treatment.

That would not explain the lighheadedness.

Recurrent tingling,numbness in the same side of the body(face,arm,leg) can be caused by brain pathology, blockage in certain arteries, demyelinating disease like multiple sclerosis. A neurologist is best qualified to evaluate your symptoms. ...Read more

See MD: You could have neck issues but I recommend that you see your PCP and perhaps a neurologist for further examination. You are young to have an acute stroke so this is not likely the cause. Do you have a headache? Neck pain? If headache, then I would suggest a visit to ER. ...Read more

Disc problem : Hmm... A disc problem in the neck could cause all of these symptoms, esp if it came on pretty acute... A simple neck strain would not give you numbness or tingling in extremities, although it can give you neck pain. Nerve irritation due to a disc bulge or herniation can do all of this, so please have yourself examined by a spine specialist and hopefully it checks out ok! ...Read more

You : You did not mention if you have seen a doctor for this problem. You may be dealing with a type of arthirtis, autoimmune disorder, or even a conditon called raynaud's phenomenon (condition affecting the vessels in the hands); causing the hands to be cold and/or numb, turn red or even blue. Regardless, a prompt medical evaluation, testing, and treatment plan are in order.
Best of luck. ...Read more
