Why are my fingers numb?

Do you ever wonder why sometimes your fingers feel numb in certain positions and awaken you from sleep at night? What could be causing these pins and needles? Where is it coming from? Have you ever thought this could be from your neck? However silly that may sound, a pinched nerve in the neck can cause tingling all the way down the arm to the fingertips. Did somebody tell you it’s Carpal Tunnel Syndrome keeping your hand numb and you awake at night? How can you tell the difference? Let the experts at Performance Pain and Sports Medicine help you make the right diagnosis. To diagnose the problem, we use a nerve test called electromyography (EMG) and nerve conduction studies (NCS) to differentiate if there is a pinched nerve in the neck or if there is a pinched nerve in the arm. Have you ever heard the story that somebody had Carpel Tunnel surgery but their numbness and tingling did not get better in their fingers? That’s a scary thought! Electromyography and nerve conduction studies can help make the correct diagnosis. Trust our Electrodiagnostic experts at Performance Pain and Sports Medicine to make the correct diagnosis. We will then treat you appropriately and lead you on the path back to hand with feeling again.
