View Full Version : Pins and needles

09-07-2014, 09:44 AM
I have some sort of pins and needle sensation when touching/using my left thumb fingertip. Is it possible for this to be caused by some nerve pinching in the neck? If it were so, wouldn't it affect far more than a fingertip? I mean, if the median nerve is pinched it would affect the whole arm, not just a fingertip?

If it were a small finger I wouldn't give it much thought, but I am really worried... The thumbs are my main tools for operating effectively.(Besides the brain : ) )

EDIT/UPDATE: Looks like that pain/pins sensation disappeared eventually. It's rather strange...
