Left Hand:

Feb 2016:
I felt a weakness and numbness in the small & ring finger of the left hand. Initially I thought this might be due to my wedding ring I wore at that hand. I took it off but the symptoms didn't go away.

Feb 2016 - now:
The symptoms have developed gradually to a heavy tremor while performing motoric tasks, which often stops when concentrating around 10s after reaching final position.

I need to concentrate on the movement to be able to perform e.g. spreading of fingers.

The tremor also occurs when eg. pushing a ball up a wall above the head.

The strength while making fist is according to a chiropractics' measurement strong

I feel no specific pain but sometimes have an awkward feeling in the wrist and on the back side of the elbow.

I'm unable to type anymore with left hand.

Right Hand:

Jan 2019:

Beginning of this year numbness / tingling started in the right hand as well with needle like pain at small and ring finger

Any ideas?

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
It could be due to motor neuropathy, cerebellar lesion or anxiety. NCS followed by MRI brain with contrast will sort it out.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
