One of the common reasons for numbness of fingers in today's generation of youngsters - especially, those who are on laptops, smart phones and text for long hours could be due to irritation or compression of nerve or branch of nerves in the wrist or arm. Poor posture can trigger these changes. Diabetes and certain vitamin deficiency could also lead to numbness.
Next Steps
Take necessary steps to maintain good posture while using mobile phones, laptops, take adequate break in between. Consult a physician
