The medical term for the numbness is parasthesia (pear-as-THEES-ee-ah)
I can think of two things off the top of my head. First of all, are you diabetic? Second, would be carpal tunnel syndrome.
If it continues, you should speak with your physician about causes. Do you do a lot of hand or finger work, such as assemply, typing, etc?
I hope this helps.
No, carpal tunnel is not hereditary. It is more from repetitive movements or use of the hands/fingers/wrists.
Yes, there are some things you can do to try and help.
First of all, drink plenty of water. It keeps the tissues well hydrated
Don't rest your wrists on the wrist pad or desk for long periods of time
Don't keep your arms handing down for prolonged periods. That tend to increase swelling and pressure.
Try not to grasp things very tighttly, and keep hold of them.
Good posture. Sounds like "what would that matter" but it does. Everything is the way the body should be, and avoids extra pressure on certain areas.
I hope these help, Britney. Please let me know if you have any further questions or concerns.
What part are you looking for? Many people I know with the degrees will start off in security work if they are still going to school. Police training? Court bailiff? I am not well versed on this subject. I wish I could help you more.
Whatever you choose, best wishes and a long and happy career to you!
