Fristly sorry if this has been answered many times, I have searched and found a few similar posts but there is something missing.
Last night (1 day after tooth extraction under sedation (drug like diazipan I think) my little finger was tingling like never before, this occasionaly went down my arm a bit. And kept me up all night. I am 26 years old male
This morning it is still a little tingly / numb but not as bad. I thought it was OD on nicotine patches as I had 1 just above the elbow 8 hours beforehand, I was also on tramadol for the pain of the tooth before extraction.
I have not hit my elbow or anywhere else as far as I know but am very paranoid as my simple collapsed lung turned into a 4 operation ordeal that you would not believe. :o(
Any advice would be great, and if you require any more details please post although I am not good with dates of surgery (2 years ago) or drug names.
Thanks in advance

After several sleepless nights and worried sick from reading different causes of this. It turned out to be some form of trapped nerve, gone in 3 days but annoying as hell.
I would say, laying in the "feetle" position with my affected arm straight really eased this. Though I did not sleep until I was exhuasted! :o(
