Numbness in Fingers After Underarm Treatment . PLEASE HELP - Irvine, CA

I have done cool sculpting tx on my under arms....

I have done cool sculpting tx on my under arms.
Needless to say the treatment was so painful that left me screaming after the machine was off.
Worst than that is loss of sensation in my forearms extending to my small finger and my ring finger. My hands are so weak I can barely move them. It's 2 day and nothing has changed
I am an artist and me life depends on my hand
Has anyone heard about these side effects ? Please advise

Also, a doctor posted on another question and said that the nerves are stretched during the procedure and can take up to 10 days to return to normal. So, if your symptoms have not resolved in 10 days then see my comment below. Check the answers on pain/bruising on this page to see what the doctor wrote:http://www.realself.com/question/zeltiq1

That's interesting. Not all doctors acknowledge post-op pain/numbness/tingling. Thanks for posting!
