Thanks for query on HCM.
Numbness of the fingers typically is a result of conditions that affect the nerves and/or blood vessels that supply the hand.
symptoms occur from everyday wear and tear or from overuse. Finger, hand, or wrist problems can also be caused by injuries or the natural process of aging.
Tingling,numbness usually occurs due to pressure on a nerve (median nerve ) in the wrist.
Start nsaid to subside pain,inflammation with therapeutic dose of B12,folic acid and other vitamins to subside tingling.numbness.
If it is not improved with oral medicines or recurrent then surgical intervention is required.
Get examined by orthopedician for proper diagnosis and medical management.
