Re: lost strength in fingers
so how is it today?any pain involved or loss of sensation with this,or just an overall weakness?sometimes,whn you leave an extremity(like your hand)in a bent position,espescially at the wrist area as there are a few nerves that go thru a very small amount of space,it can compress those nerves and even affect the musckle tone.this will ususally subside after a few hours to a few days depending on how that compression actually affected the area.if there was a complete 'pinching off" of the nerves and the blood supply to the muscles,well there is a very slim chance that you may have actually damaged something within the wrist area.
i would think that after a day or two,everything should be back to normal,if this is just allowed to rest and not overused.try to use it as little as possible.maybe doing a little bit of massage on the wrist into the hand area would possibly help speed things along/just a thought.if this has not reversed itself in a day or two,i would definitely see your primary for an eval on the wrist.just as a precaution.if you are normal healthy mr or miss average person without any underlying circulatory issues,this should not be too much of a problem in a couple of days.please let me know how things go.**
