Hi, I spent the last several days tiling my kitchen floor. After the firs full day of work I noticed I lost feeling in my left hand which I was leaning on for support while on the floor. I figured it was due to the alkward position but the feeling hasn't come back and I don't have full control of the hand, mainly the pinky, ring finger and that side of my palm feels numb. Is this somehthing that needs time or could this be permanent?

  • It sounds as if you have an ulnar neuropathy,and I suspect it'll be self-limited.
