Hi, need help from you experts.
Can you develop finger problems from neck problems? My last two fingers and my thumb do all kinds of crazy things. They lock up and wont move the way I want them to move. Also, my arm between elbow and wrist go numb at times. Can someone give me some info that may help, do not go back to see neuro until end of Sept. Had neck fused from c4-c6 back in May 08. Does anyone know if these could be thoracic problems?


  • You can have finger problems from cervical spine issues. My right index finger is numb and has been for over a year. My middle finger on my left hand didnt alwas want to do what it was told to, that seemed to go away after fusing c 5/6/6/7. I dont know if thoratic problems would cause it or not.
  • Yes, it can be caused by cervical problems. Did you have these problems before surgery? Best place to get information on your hand/arm symptoms is from your neurologist. He/she is the expert.

    Best wishes to you........
