Probable scafoid fracture - is numbness in thumb normal?

I have a probably scafoid fracture - back to outpatients next week for another xray as apparently it can take a while to show up. Did it about 5 days ago - swelling a lot better and am wearing a wrist brace.
In the last day or so I've noticed my thumb is becoming numb and am getting some pins & needles, which I didn't have initially.

Is this normal or should I be conceerned?

I think you should call the fracture clinic and get it seen sooner than later.
