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 ?

Discussion: Whenever I hear about feeling in the tip of the thumb, I think of carpal tunnel syndrome. It's common, it's often mild, it's easy to treat. Lip tingling is a tough symptom. It's usually not serious. Such a small area, it's hard for that to result from something serious. Your phos is a little low, but this is probably not the cause. How long do these symptoms last?
