My left index finger from the tip to half way down is completley numb. If I extend it...it will tingle and feel wierd. It is VERY annoying and have not done anything out of the ordinary to cause this. It happend a week ago and has not let up. Its scary me. I am 25. I should not have problems like this I thought. I did not carry anything heavy or cut off circulation to cause this.
What is going on????

  • Your problem is in the neck. Nerves supplying the hands come from your neck vertebrae. When the peripheral nerves come out of movable vertebrae, ther is a good chance for inhibiting the nerve energy flow. Have some massage therapist or yourself work on the neck muscles and the problem will go away.PArjuna85210@yahoo.com
