Question: Numb Finger Tips


 tdigga0557 - Sun Mar 07, 2004 2:00 pm

I am a 20 yr old college student and was hangin out playing a video game when my left index finger seemed odd. Then I noticed that both of my Index fingers were numb on the print side from the third knuckle to the tip. I thought maybe it was the way i was laying so i adjusted myself but 24 hours later they are still numb. just wondering if i should go to the doctor or if its not serious?

User avatar Are you still feeling that way tdigga0557?
Is the distribution of your symptoms still the same?
 tdigga0557 - Tue Mar 09, 2004 7:00 pm

yes still the same
 Dr. Tamer Fouad - Wed Mar 10, 2004 1:54 am

User avatar The distribution you are giving is very odd since it doesnt follow any major nerve distribution and because it is bilateral and developed suddenly. Yes, if it lasted this long you might want to have someone take a look at it.

What would cause this, for my middle finger tip to go completely numb and now a few
days later my ring finger on the same hand is going numb also! Is this something I should
be concerned about?
Thank you
