Index finger has been asleep for two days
Hi my name is John, I am 23 years old. My index finger on my left hand has be "asleep"  for two days now. It is not numb or hurting but it is tingling like its asleep. It is starting to make me a bit nervous because i dont know if it something serious or not. I dont remember bumping or hitting it on anything so I dont really know why or what may have caused it. ANY information would be GREATLY appreciated...

Hi,

Hope you are feeling better.
There can be many causes of your symptoms like nerve compression, peripheral neuropathy due to diabetes and B12 deficiency and peripheral vascular diseases.
Your symptoms can be due to compression of median nerve which supplies the thumb and index finger. Carpal tunnel syndrome is one such condition where compression of median nerve occurs.
If you are a smoker the possibility of peripheral vascular diseases cannot be ruled out. I would suggest you get yourself screened for diabetes and B12 deficiency also.
Please consult your PCP as soon as possible.
