Good Morning,
I'm experiencing intermittent numbness in my right pointer finger at the tip. The nail bed becomes pale & lasts under 5 min. Thx?

Numbness=perception&: complex with many possible reasons. However, pale vs. pink nail bed always=result of color of red blood cells in capillaries close enough to surface to see. So if nail bed becomes pale (without outside mechanical pressure to oppose blood flow) this clearly represents a change in blood flow to capillaries in the nail bed, e.g. advanced arterial disease, Raynaud's syndrome, ↓ed O2, etc? ...Read more

The EMG or needle test will evaluate the muscle innervated by these nerves to see if they are also affected. See a physiatrist or neurologist that do this test . Tendinitis is also still possibe. ...Read more
