Finger - October 27th 2010, 06:45 PM

Yesterday, I noticed something odd.
My fingertip (on my middle finger on my right hand) isn't as sensitive as the other fingers. It's like the sense of touch in that finger is dulled considerably.
According to people I have asked, it looks and feels like all my other fingers.


The time I noticed it was when I was coming out of Kroger. The only incident I could relate it to would be knocking the ice off the container of sorbet that I bought.
However, I don't have any symptoms of frostnip/bite.

I have no clue what is wrong with my finger. Any ideas? Besides going to the doctor.

I will have to go to the doctor eventually if it doesn't resolve, but I was wondering if anyone has experienced this or knows what could be wrong with my finger.

Hey there!

This really sounds like superficial nerve damage. You can get it from a lot of things, cutting your finger pad, and trapped or pinched nerves. Unfortunately, in a lot of cases this isn't funny reversible. However I'm no professional and I can't give you a diagnoses! Your best bet is to see your doctor as soon as you can!

I learnt in High School that your middle finger on your right hand losses sensitivity if you are on your period...

It isn't reversible sometimes? Gosh that sounds pretty unfortunate. I will head to a doctor if it doesn't get better soon.

Hmm I haven't heard that before. However, I'm not on my period right now. I'm actually not due for another two weeks.
