I have been experiencing numbness in my left baby finger for at least 4 months and in the last month, this has spread to include half my hand and my ring finger. I also have numbness in my right baby finger and also part of my right middle finger. It started as some pain (not intolerable), then progressed into a pins and needles sensation and now numbness where I cannot feel cold or hot with these extremities. My gp said it was arthritis, but I am concerned it may be something else as it seems to be spreading. Any advice or ideas are appreciated.
