Hi, this was very hard to type due to a numbness in my left pointer finger. This numbness began at night and continued for 24hrs now. I have no insurance and cant afford to get it looked at. Just curious as to what the most likely thing it would be and when I should be worried. I thought it might be carple tunnel but I dont feel any pain in my hand really. Its just numb at the finger tip. although I do use that finger allot for my online gaming spaming particular keys. How long does that usually last when there is no permenant damage?
