Rob.....Lillie hit one area real close....another if your a drinking man....outside numbing of the extremies is also common..............also if your an active hands on guy.......you can experience these things. If in doubt check it out. Later

This could be caused by carpal tunnel syndrome - do you do any repetitive work that would affect your hands or wrists - like compter work, or running a press at work?
