Question: Numb Left Hand

 nautikg - Fri Sep 26, 2008 2:50 pm

For the past two weeks part of my left hand is numb. Sometimes more or less, larger or smaler part, but all the time. Sometimes my fingers get cold, too, but that's only sometimes. It becomes so bad that it affects my normal activities such as typing or writing (I am left handed). What could it be and what should I do?

I posted a reply to spursfan b4 I realized his last post was pretty old . Maybe he's got it fixed. What I told him may help you if you'd like to read the reply. I know how aggravating that can be. I'm hoping for some help from one of the doctors myself. I think it's a very generous thing they do.
Anyway much luck with your hand.
