Why are my fingers numb?
Finger numbness can be from one of many conditions. Diabetes, nerve impingement are only two, but carpal tunnel can also cause numbness. In older folks, especially if coming on suddenly, it can indicate vascular impairment, such as a stroke. ALL numbness should be checked by a health care practitioner, but if it comes on suddenly, get to an emergency room!
Dr. Jo will endeavor to determine the cause of the numbness, and recommend an appropriate referral or treatment plan.
