Woke up at about 3 this morning with some numb fingers. I just thought I had slept awkwardly And it would wear off, but it hasn’t. It’s my thumb, forefinger and middle finger.
I’ve looked that up and it suggests carpal tunnel, but I would have thought that would have built up slowly not come on overnight.
Also, I was helping move some furniture yesterday and my arm muscles are a bit sore on that side, so I’m wondering if that’s the cause.
It doesn’t hurt but it is uncomfortable .
I’ve ordered a wrist splint off Amazon.
Any suggestions or thoughts or remedies?
It’s probably a trapped nerve but it would be worth getting some medical advice.
Yes I plan to message GP tomorrow, but not sure if they can do anything, but worth the ask and it being noted.
