I spent ages in the garden today and I used the strimmer for a while but I still have a tingling sensation in my hand, 8 hours later!

Is that normal?

Yes, that's happened to me before NBG, it's usually gone by the next day though

Darned annoying in the meantime though!

Oh thank god!

I was starting to become a bit of a hypocondriac as it's in my left hand.

It is very annoying though. Dh shall be doing it next time.

If you get this you should stop doing the job that caused it immediately (advice a bit late I know).
It should wear off within a few hours but you can cause permanent damage (vibration white finger) if you carry on despite the symptoms. It is one of the things that ex-miners can now claim compensation for.

I think it's getting worse. I'm sure it wasn't like this earlier.
