I have had problems with my right hand every since I was about 14 years old. I'm almost 22 years old now. My problems began by being on the computer long extended amounts of time with improper posture.
I developed problems where when I touched the mouse my left clicking finger would hurt. My parents didn't have medical insurance so time when on. Now I work on computers all the time and this pain has gotten worse. Sometimes my hands fall asleep...Both of them. I had a nerve conduction test done and it came back that I didn't have carpal tunnel syndrome. I then had an mri done and I don't have any pinched nerves. So now i'm wondering...What I do have.
Any ideas. I'm so tired of going to the doctor and them not telling me whats wrong.
I guess I should also note that I get pain sometimes in my feet and they sometimes fall asleep as well. Strangely enough with my hands...I've tried to squeeze my tips of my fingers to see if the color comes back quickly and it does so I don't think its blood flow circulation problems...But it feels like my feet and hands fall asleep whlie i'm using them.

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
This presentation is consistent with pressure nerve palsy. I would suggest to have proper posture and always avoid uncomfortable posture.
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
