I would advice you see health care professional right away. Here's why:

One serious complication from a cast is called "compartment syndrome". It occurs when your cast is too tight and creates excess pressure on your limb. This can be a dangerous condition because it can cause permanent nerve damage and you can lose function of your hand.

I am not trying to be sensationalist; your symptoms may turn out to be transient, with nothing more sinister going on. HOWEVER, we tell all our patients to come back if they experience any of the following symptoms: tingling, numbess, loss of color in digits, difficulty moving digits or pain.

In the first 48 hours after the cast is applied, you may get some normal mild discoloration and mild difficulty moving the digits or pain due to initial swelling. However, when these symptoms persist, it is usually a bad sign.

It is also a bad sign if these symptoms have been getting progressively worse; this is usually a sign your cast is too tight and hurting you. Even if it turns out to be nothing, I would DEFINITELY err on the side of caution and see a health care professional right away!

Until you can get to one, keep that arm elevated (use a sling) and move those fingers as much as possible. However, don't try to remove the cast yourself. Please see a physician or nurse about this.
