Tips of the fingers are numb and hurt with pressure and playing guitar
(Hopatchong, nj usa )
Hi, I play the guitar and my tips of my fingers are numb, all of them. It has moved to the right hand and started in the left hand. It only hurts when I put pressure, like pressing down on the keyboard or the fretboard.
Both my pinky's on each hand are numb from the palm to the tip. This is the only finger that I can tell that may be different and maybe something else like a neck issue.

That numbness could be coming from the neck, elbow area, forearm, wrist, or some/all of them.
If the hose of the nerve is getting stepped on, it makes sense that pressure would feel weird and/or bad.
Granted, that numbness and discomfort from pressure could be all or partly due to nutritional deficiency.
If you play guitar a lot, plus bad posture, plus nutritional deficiency, then it's both entirely unsurprising you have these symptoms and totally reversible. Though it may take some trial and error to find
where the symptoms are coming from.
There's plenty of free information on the site.
* How To Reduce Inflammation
* Magnesium for Tendonitis
Those are good places to start.
Granted I'm biased, but I think you'd find it very valuable to get my Reversing Guitar Tendonitis ebook
You may need some specific info for your neck, but I'd need more info.
If you find this post, respond to it and I'll ask you some questions etc.----------------------
