A couple weeks ago I started having a weird feeling in my left hand. If I look at the palm of my left hand, the entire right side of it if feels like it's pretty much constantly tingling. That is to say, half of my ring finger, pinky, and from those fingers down almost to my wrist feel almost numb. At first I thought I may have just slept on it weird or something along those lines, but as days went on I started to notice that not only did it not go away, but those fingers as well as well as the majority of my left hand is feeling pretty weak when it comes to grip.
I googled the symptoms of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, and these fit the early stages of it pretty well, and while I'm hoping it's something else, I figured it's probably a bad idea to ignore it any longer.
If it is Carpal Tunnel, outside of calling a Doctor, is there anything else to do? I mentioned something about this to my parents a few days ago and they suggested bending/massaging that part of my hand, but thus far it's not accomplished anything.
If anyone has any suggestions or whatnot, It'd be greatly appreciated, and thank you.
