Inability To Do Repetitive Hand Movements
Numbess in finger: Repetitive motion would be a typical cause of this finding. You can get this just from writing with a pen or pencil a lot (especially if it does not have a soft grip).

Anything requiring holding a grip (from writing to using a power tool), produces marked, persistent pain/tingling in that hand. Both hands. Ideas?

If the symptoms persist then a neurological evaluation and a nerve test can identify the cause of the pain and tingling. ...Read more
