Thumb Paresthesia Tingling
I had trigger thumb and carpal tunnel surgery on March 17, 2015. I still have numbness,tingling, tightness,sensitivity,is this normal ?
Yes: It takes time for the inflamed tissue to heal both from where the surgery was done and from around the nerve that was injured. Then it will take time for the nerve itself to heal. I just had this discussion with my hand surgeon. The nerve heals approximately 1-2 mm a day not counting the first month after surgery. Give it time. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

To see if your problem is due to nerve compression, or something else, you should see your physician for an exam. ...Read more

Hi I burnt my thumb this morning/afternoon and the pain is increasing gradually it started at the tip of my thumb but now I have a tingling sensation ?
Burnt thumb: I suspect that the nerve endings are causing your symptoms - as your thumb responds to the thermal insult. - it is likely that it will swell - and put pressure on the skin nerves causing the sensation. I would try to keep the hand elevated and cool compresses - which may help. A good OTC anti inflammatory - aspirin or advil may help. ...Read more
