What causes numbness in finger tip?
Can be mild nerve root compression.
Thanks for posting your query.
The numbness in the finger tip can be due to mild nerve compression at the elbow or an electrolyte imbalance or vitamin B 12 deficiency.
This can be detected by few blood tests and appropriate supplements will help in correction of the problem. You might consult your doctor who can order
1. a few blood tests including thyroid function tests,
2. Serum electrolytes including Serum calcium and potassium levels.
3. Serum B12 levels
In case the above tests are normal further testing can be done including - nerve conduction studies, Electromyography, etc. These tests might help to diagnose any underlying neurological issues.
The treatment of most of the conditions is very easy and the condition will resolve on its own. In some cases, prescription medications might be needed to stop severe symptoms.
I hope this answers your query.
In case you have additional questions or doubts, you can forward them to me, and I shall be glad to help you out.
Wishing you good health.
