So I'm sliding up the D string with my middle finger and all of the sudden my finger just starts stinging. It's not red or bruised-looking either. Did a microscopic piece of metal get embedded in the tip of my finger or something? Is that possible? I'm using D'addario Phosphor Bronzes.

Maybe so, I've never had one before. Does that go away?

This used to happen to me a lot.
I thought the same thing, maybe a sliver of metal or something, but I believe it's just your nerves.
My middle finger would get it most of the time, and if I stopped playing for like a day, it would go away. Just happens sometimes, hit a nerve wrong.
Thanks guys. I'll just let my hand rest and hope it goes away in time.

Hi, you're better than me. Have a nice day!
You have my sword. (Or is axe more appropriate?)

I've had small pieces of metal from the string go into my finger before as well, but this is unlikely unless you see some defect on the string. Just rest it up and it should go away sooner or later.
