| | Numbness in Fingers
I am experiencing numbness in the last two fingers (pinky and ring finger) on either hand ... not necessarily both hands at the same time.
The numbness only occurs in these two fingers and is generally confined to the last digit in either of the fingers. It doesn't seem to be associated with a specific injury ... sometimes I just wake up and they are numb. The frustrating thing is that they often stay numb for a week or longer.
This time my ring finger on my left hand has been numb for the last two weeks. This really frustrating ... I like to play the guitar and it is really affecting my playing. Also, I'm and engineer and do a lot of work on the computer ... sometimes it makes typing quite awkward.
This numbness is driving me mad ... I'm contemplating chopping them off with a meat cleaver ...... not really ..... but that would cure the numbness.
