I have lost the feeling (muscles Ok as bending etc not a problem) in one finger but only from the top knuckle to the tip. It seemed to happen suddenly 4 days ago and is not recovering...it is like the nerves have effectively just died. Any ideas? I am a 50 year old woman and in perfect health otherwise as far as I know.

I am a 50 year old woman and in perfect health otherwise as far as I know.I have the same thing, in my left pinky finger and it has been there now for a couple of weeks and has not went away at all. My doctor seems to think that there is a pinched nerve in my elbow but I think he may be wrong, if you hear anything please let me know!
