Finger Pain after Bier Block
After receiving the Bier block for carpal tunnel surgery, my fingers(pinkie finger and finger next to it) are still numb and burning is this common for this type of procedure, its already been 10 days post surgery?
It may be related to the carpal tunnel syndrome/surgery but not the Bier block. Consulting a Pain specialist may be indicated.
