Numbness In Thumb And Index Finger On Left
I have had numbness and tingling in left thumb and index finger for 5 weeks now. It sometimes aches in the hand and up to the underarm what is it?
Pinched nerve: You are experiencing nerve irritation called radiculopathy. Most commonly, one of the nerves coming off of your spinal cord in your neck is getting pinched or irritated for some reason. You definitely need to be evaluated in person. Waiting too long could lead to permanent weakness in the hand. Treatment could be as easy as an Rx, but you might need an MRI. Please see a doc. Read moreSee 7 more doctor answers
Nerve impingement: Can be caused by being sandwiched between two spinal bones, pressed by a bulging disc. It can cause muscle weakness and pain, finger numbness, etc. Prevention treatment is always recommended. See interventional pain management specialist for definitive diagnosis and management.

Numbness over dorsum of left hand; over thumb and area below index, middle and ring fingers down to wrist- 1 day. No pain, non progressive, unilateral
Radial sensory nerve: Dorsal radial sensory nerve supplies that area could be too tight a watch or bracelet causing pressure on the sensory branch at the wrist level. Could also be a traumatic blow to that area, usually neuroapraxic injury (bruising) that will respond to rest and time. Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
48 hours ago my left thumb and index finger tips went numb after a firm front neck massage. The feeling has still not returned. Should I see a doctor?
This suggests that you might have something (like an intervertebral disc)pressing on a nerve in your neck. It could be related to the massage if it was forceful enough to put your neck vertebrae out of alignment. You can see an orthopedist but I advise seeing an osteopath who does osteopathic manipulation- see http://physician. Academyofosteopathy. Org/
(or a direct non-force technique chiropractor) Read more

NCV/EMG: Usually an NCV/EMG is done. It is not a structural test like an MRI, but rather checks the nerves themselves. It can help distinguish between a problem coming from the spine, the arms themselves (such as carpal and cubital tunnel syndromes), or more of a neurological condition such as in a neuropathy.

3 bulging disc in my neck /pain and numbness in right arm from elbow to index finger and thumb doctor wants to refer neurologist is this correct?
Pinched nerve: Neck pain that runs down the arm with or without numbness and tingling sounds like a pinched nerve in the neck. This is usually caused by a protruding disc or bone spur touching one of your spinal nerves as it leaves your neck. A neurologist can be a good start to get this evaluated.

What would cause me to loose feeling in my thumb, index and middle finger on my left hand? I woke up and they were numb this morning and still are.
Nerve issue: This sounds like a nerve issue. Either it was positional when you or sleeping, and it is likely the same nerve, median, that carpal tunnel can affect, or a nerve from your neck or shoulder coming down. Typically this does resolve over time. I would recommend an evaluation if it does not. Read more

Carpal tunnel…?: Most likely, you have carpal tunnel syndrome. This can be caused by a variety of things, and does not always affect the dominant hand. Try wearing a wrist brace (available over the counter) on your left hand at night for a couple of weeks. If it doesn't improve, see your doctor. Read more
Carpal tunnel: You must have your hand folded down sometimes during sleep. If you hold that position for long enough, carpal tunnel syndrome symptoms can result. Wear a wrist brace specifically designed for carpal tunnel when you go to sleep. Be sure it has a firm support like plastic of metal to keep the wrist in good position. Don't get a completely soft wrist brace since that's not adequate. Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
