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

EMG /nerve study: A nerve conduction study and electromyography can be helpful . It will measure the response time, and speed of conduction of nerves that go through the wrist under the carpal ligament into the fingers. 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

So it is likely your new symptoms is coming from the level below your prior surgery, or from your ulnar nerve most likely from your elbow. Go see s spinal specialist for advice. ...Read more
