    Question numb fingers

    Hi everybody, I'm new and wanted to ask a question. I've been having problems with my hands and fingers going numb. It is mainly my right hand(and I am right handed). It use to happen mainly when I wake up in the morning, but now it is happening when doing meticulus work. This morning I was dusting and my fingers were going numb. Does anybody else have this kind of problem, and what is causing this to happen? Do I need to see a doctor about this? Thanks for any helpful info.

    Re: numb fingers

    Have you had a history of using your hands alot for manual labour? You could possibly have carpal tunnel syndrom. My Father has it really bad in both hands/wrists. Anytime he raises his arms (like painting, holding a fork, ect) his hands go numb. Yours does not sound as bad, but could progress. My father also has pain associated with his (arthritis). It is just a possibility, get it checked out.

    P.S. - I've heard from many people that a chiropractor can do alot for CT and works wonders

    good luck! hope you find your answer!

    It could be a circulation problem. If it keeps happening I would see a doctor about it. Parts of the body going numb can be very painful.
