Few months ago I created a thread about my right hand being weak. I got my hand never tested and the doc determined that I have a "severly damaged nerve ending" in my palm possibly due to my palm (the pink side) being pressed against the handlebar for a long period of time. MRI will be done next week & 90% of chance of getting an incision across my palm to my wrist to relieve some pressure. Hopefully my muscle between my thumb & index finger will become stronger again in the next 3~4 months but til then I have to wait patiently for the nerves to grow back (about an inch every month from what he said). Right now I can't clip my nails without bending my thumb. I almost dropped a plate with palm faced down. If you spread your hand out & try to push on your index finger towards the middle, you'll feel the resistance, mine doesn't on my right. That's how weak it is. Not riding for awhile sucks but not having a fully functional hand rest of my life would suck even more. Guess I'll have the chance to save money at the same time & build a new trials spec bike to celebrate. :x: Don't neglect any hand problems...it could be as serious as mine!
