my finger has been numb for four hours...

So i woke up this morning and my finger was tingling, like it was asleep, and four hours later, i still have the same sensation; its in my right index finger. Ive never had this happen before, so its kinda worrying me. I did i quick check on web md, and it could be Raynauds phenomenon, although im not too big on diagnosing myself without a medical license. Anyone have any other ideas? Do i have the diabetes?

You probably just have a pinched/aggravated nerve.

I propose full blown herpes. Shingles can give you numb patches, it is more likely than you think!

I also propose that someone has snuck in during the night and injected local anaethetic into your arm, numbing your finger. What they did with your finger from there... well...

Another possibility is a bite from a neurotoxic animal such as some spiders, snakes and marine animals! This is most likely now that I think about it. Bet the numbness is spreading right! Ooh... glad I am not you.

Good thing you came here too, rather than talking to those damned quack doctors

You know, some people need to sit on their hands for atleast 15 minutes to achieve that, and even then, just for a minute....

Thumb, index, or middle finger numbness/tingling noticed upon awakening is usually due to you sleeping with your wrist forcibly bent downwards (usually by you sleeping on top of it). Happens more often in people with carpal tunnel syndrome, who already have median nerve compression issues. Not sure why it has persisted for so long - I'd talk to a doc if it keeps up. If it happens frequently when you wake up you might want to try sleeping in a wrist brace.

Reynaud's involves cold temperatures causing your hand/fingers to change colors over a period of a few minutes due to blood vessel constriction. Doesn't last long and you would notice the color change.

if it's still numb after a few days, it's most likely a pinched nerve.
when i was doing some tricep dips, my dumbbell slipped and the next day i woke up with my right thumb and forefinger numb. the doctor told me it was a pinched nerve and may or may not get better. i took some medication he gave me (a cortisoid), but it's been several months now and my thumb and tip of my forefinger feel like they are asleep and occassionally feel like they are tingling awake. but they never quite reach normal. he said it could be like that for the rest of my life.
it's my right hand, too. makes me feel like a retard when i blow dry my hair, brush my teeth or do any of the other kabillion things you do with your dominant hand.

you're getting a little too harsh about this stuff lately man. what's wrong with getting opinions from people? it's one thing when somebody comes in here, asks, gets answers of some kind and then talks shit or whatever, but this guy hasn't done that.. why not give him some insight?

Give it a few days, it'll most likely go away.

Try swinging your arm around in circles violently--forcing blood into your fingers.

Do this in a clear area, so you don't smack your hand on something like a table and break a bone.

I've had this happen--it's generally when I'm in a cold environment, I'm not moving around, and I've usually just eaten something (so my blood rushes to my stomach). My fingers would turn red, then white, then blue...so patriotic.

Now this sounds like Reynaud's.

I was on the phone for about an hour and my whole left hand went numb, I switched hands and the feeling came back except for my pinky and ring finger. It just feels constantly tingly, and it's been like that for a while now, havn't bothered going to the doctor's. I only notice it when I think about it. Pinched nerve you guys thinnk?
