Have any of you ever experienced hand and finger numbness/tingling on your hand which resulted in loss of strength? In example: trouble picking up/gripping things with that particular hand.
I am asking you all because I'm worried about my girlfriend - she is experiencing exactly that and we are looking for solutions. She drops things from time to time because of the numbing sensation. She tells me that her "bad" right hand is really weak compared to her left one.
Can't go to the doctor all the time because it costs too damn much...she has no insurance...
Fortunately, her lab work showed up clean and normal so it is not a metabolic thing. And the carpel tunnel test turned out negative. So, our hunch is that it is a pinched nerve which probably resulted from too much stress on her behalf ( her father had a stroke and is in very bad shape...all this occurring at the same time her mother was diagnosed with kidney disease. she's on dialysis now. these two incidents caused some major emotional damage to my girlfriend)
Thanks in advance for your responses, I appreciate it.
