Carpal Tunnel

Syndrome can be a culprit as can pinching of the ulnar nerve at your elbow. In Carpal Tunnel Symdrome typically your Thumb, Index, middle and ring finger are numb, In ulnar nerve entrapment your pinky and ring finger are numb. If your whole hand is numb it could be both or a metabolic issue like diabetes (most common).

what does it mean when you wske up with numbness in your fingers?

Neck arthritis?

Extremity-upper-hand
You may be suffering from some nerve compression of the nerves going to your hands by some arthritic changes in your neck vertebrae. Please see your doctor for an exam. It could also be from carpel tunnel, but that is often painful too.

What does it mean when a migraine causes pain in the jaw and numbness in the fingers and toes?

Good question

Extremity-lower-foot-toes
Really good question but I can't see any relationship with migraines and toe numbness. Have you had an MRI or scan? You should discuss with your dr.

What does it mean if my finger pads go numb?

Carpal tunnel

It certainly could be carpal tunnel syndrome, a pinched nerve in your wrist which makes your fingers go numb. See a Hand Surgeon for an examination and treatment.

What exactly does it mean when your finger goes purple and numb?

Vessel spasm

Extremity-upper-fingers
Sound like Raymaud's phenomenon. This is a temporary spasm of the artery which reduces blood flow to the finger. This can cause a bluish/purplish coloration and some finger numbness. Try warming the hand up when this happens. If you are a smoker you must stop to help this. If it keeps up get it checked out

What does it mean if every once in awhile your fingers tingles and goes numb?

Carpal tunnel

Extremity-upper-hand-thumb
Most frequent is carpal tunnel where nerve is temporarily pinched at the wrist, but you can hit your "funny bone", and cause tingling and numbness due to the ulnar nerve at elbow. Monitor activity, and see if problems come from computer activities or leaning on elbow. If persistent symptoms, see your doc.

Dr. Prem Gupta answered:

What does it mean if I hold something with my hands my fingers and hands start to go numb. Sometimes my hands move like twitch on there own?

Possible CT Syndrome

Extremity-upper-fingers
If symptoms are confined to hands and fingers then carpal tunnel syndrome ( pinched nerve at wrist) is likely. Twitching seems a separate issue. See a neurologist.
