hi
welcome to healthcare magic
hi...injury from sharp objects can cause lacerated wounds...
due to which the nerve fibres are damaged and so loss of sensation occurs..
get good dressing of the last two fingers... get an nerve conduction study done..
the sensations will be back in few days...not to worry..
take care

I dyed my hair last week, and I got some dye on my fingers. The next day I discover a couple small black dot close to my finger tips. Over the next couple of days, my finger is numb and I m unable to feel with that finger. It seems like those dots are on four of my fingers on my right hand and one on my left hand. Could it be the dye that cause it? If not, what could be the cause? How could I cleanse it?

My name is Jennifer. I am a 41 year old female, 5 9 , 125 LB. Over the past 10 years I have had symptoms of arrhythmias , chest pain, breathing problems (inability to breath deeply), coughing and severe hoarseness usually coinciding with the other problems. It seems to be getting slowly worse as I get older. I sleep sitting up. If I lay down I risk waking up with significant chest pain, choking and arrhythmias. I tried to get a diagnosis in my 30 s but no one found the source of my problem before I lost my insurance and stopped pursuing it. I recently went to a chiropractor and had x-rays taken. There is significant compression and misalignment between C3 and C4. There is also some arthritic changes between these vertebrae. I used to break horses when I was in my early 20 s and at one point directly fell on my head and was knocked out. I assume that is what caused this particular injury. My question is could this injury be causing the arrhythmias, chest pain, breathing problems and hoarseness? I know you can t answer with certainty I am just curious if it is a possibility. Thank you for your time, Jennifer

hello - I'm 47 and tend to get upper respiratory issues frequently (maybe 3 or 4 times a year) and they last for several weeks. Do the math and I'm sick for about 3 months every year. Other than that, I have no issues. Recent bloodwork doesn't show anything but I do have a deviated septum and when I'm sick, it's very hard to breathe. Any idea if that could be a factor into why I'm frequently sick?
