My thumb is numb after writing a first rough baby to death

These symptoms are more likely to be due to pressure on a nerve than a problem with the blood supply. If just your thumb is being affected, the problem may be due to inflammation at the base of the thumb, around the wrist. This in turn may be due to repeated movements of the thumb – such as typing or holding a computer mouse – especially as the pain is worse during the day. Resting your hand as much as possible and wearing a wrist support may help – if not, then see your doctor for further tests.
