Hello, please just tell me if this is serious or not!

We went camping and my friend was climbing over a style when she felt her hand was weakened. After that we contiued on after we insisted on gettind her medical attention but she said that she was totally fine and would continue and visit the doctors the nest day.

Her hand wasn't totally weak but had lost considerable power suddenly.

Any ideas what this could be as I cant get in touch with her and am starting to worry.

  • Is it better or does it continue?It could have just been a compression of a nerve - leading to numbness or muscle weakness. However, if it continues, she will want ot see a doctor
