does anyone know what would cause you hands and fingers to go numb and then feel tingly and what can be done to relieve this?

herniated disk in your neck, carpal tunnel syndrome, cubital tunnel syndrome... the list goes on and on.Either way it's caused by compression of a nerve. A Doc or PT needs to ID where that nerve is being compressed and then treatment is contingent on the cause.
Way more info is need to even take a guess. Try this symptom checker...

Sounds like a disc issue stemming from your neck. Nothing was broken but things are most likely shifted or a disc is bulging - neither will show on an x-ray. If it's 2 years later it's probably not being caused by edema. One course of action is to see your Doc for a PT referral, a PT can treat this with some manual therapy, cervical traction, myofacial release techniques to re-align the facet joints of your neck to relieve the pressure on the nerve. Definitely see your doc for treatment!!
