Hie there, i have been having this numb feeling around the area below my left thumb. I got this when i woke up from a short nap (less than 30mins) as i was lying on my left side. So i figure the numbness will go away, as it usually does. But it has since been 5 days and the numbness is still there, though i feel it is milder now. I have also noticed my 4th left finger has some pain on the nail especially when i have been on the keyboard for some time. The numbness that i have, had happened before, about few months back. Back then i was told my nerve was blocked and was given a nerve medicine, and after 2 tablets the numbness was gone. Anybody have any idea wat is going on with me right now, and is it possible that a blocked nerve caused by the short nap, can last this long?? Should i be worried of something else? Thanks.
