Why is the tip of my middle finger numb? Also, I wake up every morning with both hands tingling... I recently started prep cooking in a restaurant.

Need to see a doctor: This could be either neck problem or possible carpal tunnel syndrome. You need to see a doctor to get a completely neurological examination. Did you ever had neck injury during sports or motor vehicle accident in the past? If you did, it is possible the numbness related to the neck injury. If you did not it is possible carpal tunnel. I still recommend you to see a doctor to rule out other causes. ...Read more

My middle finger tip feels numb?

My middle finger tip feels numb?

Numb middle finger: It can be due to many things and more history would be helpful. Is it constant or it comes and goes? Is it triggered by something like cold exposure?

Some possible causes include carpal tunnel syndrome, cervical radiculopathy (pinched nerve roots in the neck), peripheral neuropathy of various types (like ones due to diabetes), and raynau'ds phenomenon. ...Read more

Couple thoughts: Without an actual examination, I cannot give specific medical advice on your particular health but, there's two broad categories of numbness. sick nerves like from diabetes, thyroid, etc. affects multiple areas, and the tips of longest nerves. Pinched nerves hit ONE area and go outward from the injury. You describe two different things. REALLY sick nerves could be... and stron reason for check up ...Read more
