Numb thumb

I broke my wrist (radius) 2 weeks ago and now its in a cast. My thumb has now gone completely numb but there is definately circulation going through. Is this normal?

This is not normal. The circulation can be in tact but it is possible that the cast is pressing on the nerve supply to the thumb. It is therefore, important to reconsult your doctor.
