Slight numbness in index finger - cause for concern?
Hi, I'm a 23 year old IT Professional (Use the keyboard a lot). I'm in good shape and work out quite a bit.
A couple of days back, I noticed a funny feeling in my right index finger when I rubbed it. It was a tingling sensation like I'd hit the proverbial funny bone, only on my finger, and soon I started noticing a little numbness on one side of that finger. I can feel everything fine using the finger, just not as well as the other one.
Is this a cause for concern and should anything be done about this?
