After doing Linda today my left thumb is numb and has been for about 5 hours now. I can use it with no problem, it just feels weird.
Any ideas what it is and what I might do to get it to stop?
Or is it just a wait and see situation?
Thanks for the help.

Ron--not a medical person, so this is an amateur opinion. Probable cause is a pinched nerve--I have had this before, and it can last a while, but generally not a big deal. Thanks, Bill

I used to have that problem alot. Prior to strengthening my grip. It seems to have subsided. Hasn't been a problem for about six months. I would like to hear from any of the docs here.
