Thanks for posting a question.
I need to know some more about your symptoms.
How long do the symptoms last?
Are they the same on both sides?
Are all your fingers affected?
It last for about five seconds maybe when I shake my hands it goes away.
Both hands all fingers are affected, it feels as if my fingers are asleep.
so yes all fingers are affected,but not my hands.
Is it just the tips of your fingers?
When did this problem start?
Any neck pain?
Any symptoms in your feet?
It started a couple of months back. I don't experience any neck pain at all. I don't
have any problems with my feet at all. I am an Lpn. I Have been keeping up with my physical required for work. I am currently laid off a weekend baylor job, applying for a new nursing job. I currently do not have health coverage but should have it back soon. I do want to mention I lost my older sister a year ago. She took after my father and had all his hedietary problems. she died of ateriosclorosis,blockage of her coranary atries. She was also diabetic on insulin and a heavy smoker. I took after my mom, I dont have Highblood pressure , I don't have high cholesterole. my sister had all the above. I feel realitvly healthy
other then this problem.
Thankyou for working with me
Do you have this ever morning or can it vary from day to day?
It doesn't happen every morning.maybe couple times every week
To be honest I would really not worry about this.
There are several conditions that can present with altered sensation in the limbs but your own symptoms are not at all consistent with any of those.
For the time being I would do nothing - should the symptoms become more persistent or change in anyway I would re-evaluate your symptoms. However I would really not expect that to happen.
The symptoms are most likely related to your posture while you have been asleep.
