This is ridiculous, I have a numb dull tingling blah feeling in the thumb and fingers of my right hand, so how am I typing/ I guess fromm yuears of practce sorry for typos. I used to be able to tupe 90 words per minute with only about one or two mistakes and now I am having troubles with that and my hand is doing this stuff.
Is this possibly a syjmptom? It's happening a lot not just during sleep. My whole hand will go numb and then if I massage it sometimes it will come back and sometimes not. It stinks!

Yes me too.The past 2 weeks ive suffered with mainly my left side.My arms are both a bit numb and ive lost the power to grip...like trying to squeeze toothpaste is a problem. My Doctor is aware but didnt advise me and didnt seem bothered. My left side of the face is also a bit numb like a dentist visit. I hope yours gets better soon.When i find out what it is i'll let you know.I find i too have it when ive slept but recently its here when i wake too, for 2 whole weeks. I am going for an MRI soon, so im wondering if that will pick anything up and give me info....but it is really a scan for my jaw so not sure.
