Swollen Wrist No Pain, Tingle or Numbness

06/02/2010

Question:

I have had numbing and tingling in my baby finger for about a month on and off. This morning I noticed that my wrist is swollen, very soft, where it bends on same side of baby finger. The hand and wrist have no pain just numbing and tingling. What could it possibly be and when should I see a doctor? I do not have health insurance until the end of June so if I do not have to go yet I would prefer not to.
