    Worried about hand function.

    To whomever may be able to help me I would greatly appreciate it. About a month and a half ago my left pinky and ring finger went very weak and couldn't manage fine motor control of my hand. That lasted about 5 days then disappeared. 3 weeks ago it happened again only now it is worse and hasn't disappeared. I cannot get my pinky or ring finger to touch my other fingers if I try to hold my hand straight out and close all my fingers. I cannot do simple tasks, such as, buttoning, holding a untensil or anything that requires fine motor control. The fingers are very weak and don't do what I ask them to do. My grip in the hand itself is fine but the weakness and finger dexterity seems to only be getting worse. Can someone please advise. I drive an 18 wheeler for a living on long haul so the sooner the better. I leave on Friday and am worried. I am usually out about 2 weeks.
