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.

Let doctor decide. Your blurry vision may be a separate issue! it could be totally separate from your other symptoms; you should see a doctor for medical examination and advice. The hand may be carpal tunnel syndrome or manifestation of more systemic disease. Read more...
