So everything was fine, i went to sleep one night (about 1.5 months ago) and woke up with a numb pinky and ring finger. It is constant, and has been for the duration. Also, its spread to half of my palm (just under my numb fingers).
I went to the doctor, had a shock test done on my ulnary nerve and some other nerves along the way up to my hand. The doctor said that my left ulnary nerve is slow and another nerve in my wrist is slow, maybe causing the numbness. Then he also tells me that i have similar problems with my right arm/hand (this hand isn't numb). He has had me on neurotin, (i think this is how its spelled), for the past 1.5 months and its not helping. My third visit to him, he says he can do surgery and it may or may not fix the problem. This is not a random doctor either, its cambells clinic, supposedly world known.
This morning i woke up and my right pinky and ring finger is numb, very scary to me, as obviously i don't want anymore numbness. Thank God it went away after a minute or so.
I have my elbos rested on my desk at work, then at home, all the time, which i think may have caused this whole thing... i dunno though, so i put pillows on my desks to rest my arms, along with splints on my wrists and a arm sock with a pad in it to protect my ulnary nerve and wrist.
I haven't done anything damaging that i know of to any part of my arm/wrist.
please tell me what you think and maybe something to prevent the rest of me from going numb! i'm stressed!
I haven't been lifting during this time either. just fyi
