3 weeks ago my two last fingers of my left hand went numb, I was told it's pinged nerve in elbow. Then fingers became painful. Now, the whole hand. ?

Ulnar neuropathy: Your symptoms appear, at first glance, to be an ulnar neuropathy. I share your concerns, however, if you are having symptoms in the rest of the hand as well. If you are having weakness in the hand, forearm or arm I would be concerned about a brachial plexopathy (injury to the network of nerves in the shoulder). I would discuss with your primary doctor, and consider a neurologist. Take Care! ...Read more

I am experiencing finger numbness in my right pointer finger for two days now. It happened after an art project with using an Xacto knife to cut. ?

It should resolve: Hello Lauren. Assuming you didn't actually cut the finger with an Xacto knife? The numbness is likely from compression of the digital nerves that exist at your fingertip. This likely started from the constant pressure on that fingertip making them "fall asleep". The nerve should wake up on its own. It may even 7-10days. Avoid putting pressure on that finger directly until it does. ...Read more
