I have been having parasthesia over the past few months in my legs, but more recently a persistent amount of "sleep" in my fingers and hands, as well.
Until this past weekend it was something I noticed at work, but now if can be driving, talking on the phone, taking a shower, or just watching TV and have it happen.
I work at a chimpanzee care facility, so a lot of my work entails using push mops, scrubbers, and squeeges. My back hand is usually the one to fall asleep so I switch the hand the tool is in. The hand that falls asleep is usually just there for support of the end of the handle, rather than actual muscle use.
I was worried I'm not getting enough circulation. I was also worried about carpal tunnel. If it sounds like it could be an issue, I'll visit my doctor and get to the bottom of it. If anyone knows of exercises or anything that can help this condition, I'd appreciate it. I don't want a problem to arise out of this, so I was checking to see if anyone had experience with this. I appreciate any ideas, thank you.
