    :o when should I start to get really concerned? before or after it falls off?

    I don't recall hitting it on anything.. I think I just slept on my arm strange or something. It was numb when I woke up on wednesday.

    color of finger and nail are normal.. I can still use it fine.. it's just numb :o

    I strained a nerve in my arm while skydiving and three of my fingers were numb for about 5 days.

    I went to the doctor after two days of minimal improvement or change. He just checked the movement in my fingers and the feeling all the way down my arm. Then pretty much told me to come back if it wasn't better after a week. The feeling returned slowly over the next couple of days so no need to go back.

    if it had gotten worse I might be concerned.. but most of the time I don't even notice it :o

    same exact thing happened to me a couple of weeks ago.
    but it was the tip of my left thumb. everything looked normal except it just felt weird.
    i thought i slept on it or something i don't really know.
    but don't worry it went away completely after 3 days.
