a pinched nerve in your finger?
The other day I was patting Takoda on his but kind of hard. Not hard
enough to hurt him, just how he like's it. For those of you that don`t
know who Takoda is, he`s my baby dog. Any how I got this shooting pain in
the inside of my finger on the second knuckle. I turned my hand over
and it looked like I had broken a blood vessel right where it bends. I
bruise easily so I thought nothing of it. Then yesterday as I was on
here typing that finger got really cold and mum. It stayed that way
until I stopped doing things. It warmed back up, but the tip of my
finger still felt funny. As soon as I started doing things again it went
really cold and really mum again. It felt fine when I got up today, but
since I start working on my computer at 6am its starting to get the same feeling again.
So I was wondering if anyone has had anything like this happen to them
and if so was it a pinched nerve? Did it just go away on its own, or did
you have to see a Dr? I`m not sure if there`s much that can be done
about it if that`s whats going on, but I thought I`d ask you guy`s for

I have definitely had something like this iin my pointer finger about 4 months back! I know how aggravating and painful it is! I didnt even know where it came from at the time either which just made it even more frustrating. I was going to go to the doctor but thought i'd wait it out a little bit and about after a week or so, it just all of a sudden went away!! There was nothing I really could do to make it feel better before though unfortunately :(
Keep us posted!!!

shellsbells, sorry this happened to you to, but thanks for letting me know.
Its driving me crazy, so I hope it doesn't take as long to go away as it did for you.

I haven't heard of this before but I think it's always a good idea to ask your Doctor about it. At a minimum maybe learn if there is anything you can do to prevent it from happening again. Sorry you had this happen. It doesn't sound fun!

Sorry to hear about it. Hopefully when you get it checked out you can figure out how to prevent it from happening again.

My Dr's on Vacation and I hate going to the clinic. It does feel better
today, but if it keeps up I will head over to the clinic tomorrow. If I
go I'll let you all know what they said this is and if anything can be
done about it.

That sounds very painful- ouch!!! Hopefully it will feel better soon.
I fell down the stairs (I'm a bit accident prone!) once and I hit my elbow really hard and some of what you're saying, I felt as well. I never went to the doctor, so I don't know if it was a pinched nerve for sure but it almost felt like when you hit your funny bone, but more painful. It would feel really numb sometimes too. The good part is that it did go away on it's own but sometimes it would resurface and feel pretty bad.
Definitely get it check though- better safe than sorry right?

sharp, shooting pain is typically nerve pain (as is pins and needle pain and 'electrical' type shooting pain).
If it crosses the second knuckle (metacarpal) it's likely a wrist flexor tendon.
Sounds like a muscular strain to me ... because there are a trillion muscles in the wrist/forearm and such a teeny tiny place for all of them to squeeze into, there's often nerve involvement (if the muscle swells and such) hence why you might feel some sharp pain.
Gentle stretch (extend your arm straight in front of you palm down, gently pull fingers towards ceiling - you should feel a gentle pulling in the inside of your wrist), ice (not more than 10 minutes) and make a doctor's appt if it keeps bugging you in the next few days.
