Left index finger numbness

I have been developing numbness in the left index finger very recently,I normally take B12 pills in excess, does this have any influence or show any sign of any disease  any kind, I eat a nonvergetarian diet, am slightly obese, I am worried about this numbness, I heard some sideeffects of overdose of B12 pills, can you post a reply regarding how to treat this numbness

Hi
Welcome to the MedHelp forum!
What you have is probably Scalene Myofascial Pain Syndrome. When scalene muscle is the cause of pain, the pain is referred to chest, inner lining of scapula (shoulder bone), shoulder, posterior and lateral sides of the arm right up to the thumb and index finger. Repeated clicking of mouse of computer can injure the tendon of index, cause compression of median nerve and also cause this numbness.
Please consult your PCP for primary examination followed by proper referral.
Take care!

It may be that you are eating to much salt my suggestion would be to cut back on the salt intake if that doesn't help see a doctor
