This sounds like one of those oddball situations where there was something in the Isagenix that would make her depleted in some nutrient or some herbal supplement reacted with her funky. I looked up Isagenix, but couldn't find much info on it....

No meds, but what about herbal supplements? Has her exercise increased as of late. What brought on the numbness in her fingers? Some type of injury or did she wake up that way? Does anything make it better/worse? Is it all fingers? Does it radiate anywhere? I'd like some detail on this piece of the puzzle.

Her exercise has been the same.

The herbal supplements is whatever is supplied in the isagenix program. No huge amounts/deficiencies of anything.

It is in all fingers, and now that you dig a little deeper, seems to be in her big toes too as she has noticed herself shuffling her feet lately because her numb big toes has made walking difficult.

Yes, she awoke with the numb fingers, and today the numb tongue.

Nothing makes it better or worse.

Radiate? numbness? :confused:

Tnuiqs: Sorry buddy, not this time. Although someday I hope... just so we can discuss it!
