Re: [IP] numbness in fingers


As Ted said this could be signs of either carpal tunnel or neuropathy, either
way it is not an emergency.  You should bring it to your doctors attention. 
There are surgeries that will repair both.  (I just talked to a specialist at a
meeting he says that with this surgery he has restored feeling also)  I
developed Carpal Tunnel due to excessive typing a couple of years before
diagnosed.  At that time my doctor gave me a brace to wear at night which kept
me from waking up with my hand numb.  Good Luck!
