pins and needles in finger tips
Hello,

For about two weeks now I've been experiencing pins and needles in my fingertips (mostly my left thumb) whenever pressure is applied (i.e. opening a door know, typing on the computer, etc.). I've generally had good health, non-smoker, drink about once a month, 25 yrs old. I do work on the computer quite a bit and the other day a nerve in my neck went out of wack and the pain went half way down my back and hurt severely for about 24hrs. My back is still a little sore and its been about five days. Not sure if that's even related to what's going on with my fingers. If anyone can point me in the right direction I would greatly appreciate it.

There can be several reasons of your arm/finger numbness or pins/needles like sensations although without being able to examine you I can not offer you the specific advice on diagnosis and treatment that you need, but I would try to provide you some relevant information about your health concern.

Most likely your symptoms could be due to injury to a nerve (finger numbness due to cervical spine), pressure on spinal/peripheral nerves (neuropathy), vitamin deficiency, lack of blood supply due to cholesterol plaque from atherosclerosis in the extremities, viral infection and use of certain medications.  In addition, atherosclerosis can also cause pain, numbness, and tingling while walking and they can also reduce blood supply and lead to numbness. Please consult your doctor to get all these possibilities evaluation in your case for further assessment. Hope this helps.
