Re: Broken finger, possibly nerve damage?
just exactly "how' did you break that particular finger? what you are describing actually sounds more like a c spine problem that is affecting that finger not the other way around? the median nerve is what actually innervates the forefinger at the c spine level this also correlates up there to the c 6-7 level,depending. when my c 6-7 herniated i had very strong symptoms in that forefinger as well. i seriously would speak to your doc about a referral for an MRI to be done on your c spine area. this may reveal the underlying problem. there can be many different types of spinal issues going on in anyones spine that can affect fingers,some very extreme, depending upon just what the real issue is and how severely it is impacting the nerve roots up there.
what you are describing just really sounds classic for possible c spine problems. radiculopathy is what it actually is called. but an MRI of your c spine,in my opinion,is really much needed right now. this just does NOT sound like 'just' a finger issue at all. just speak with your doc about the symptoms and see about getting that MRI. i am willing to bet, just based upon what you have described, you DO have some level of problem up in that c 6-7 area. i do wish you luck with this. please keep me posted.
