Index finger numbness
I have recently developed numbness in my index finger and occasioally my thumb.  It is usually resolved by changing the position of my shoulder although some numbness in the distal portion of my index finger remains and I cannot distinguish between hot and cold.  There is no pain.  I have been referred to a Neurologist for evaluation of radial nerve impingement.  If it is determined that this is the diagnosis, are there treatments other than surgery available?

I have same problem.  Since 2003 I have pinched nerve in neck
c4-5 c5-6 ddd in my neck.  I took steroids by mouth for 30 dys.
It cleared it right up for several months. The doctor wanted to do surgery but I chose to wait.  Now 3 yrs later every now and then i get numb thumb and index finger. but I just ignore.
It goes away after awhile.  I was told not to jump into surgery unless constant constant pain.  I also had PT didnt help much.

Good luck.
