So I started doing Sheiko a little over 2 weeks ago. Since the first deadlift day my thumb and pointer fingers have been numb to different degrees. Recently my middle finger has also become numb. Once I figured it might have something to do with the hook grip I stopped using it, but my fingers are still really numb. Bench press (17 sets) yesterday really seemed to exasperate the issue.
I’ve never had symptoms like this before, I have zero symptoms in my left hand, and I’m really not sure what to do about this. Grip strength-wise my right hand (symptomatic hand) is stronger btw. I may very well go to a doctor Monday or Tuesday if this doesn’t start to clear up.
I suppose I could discontinue my cycle as one person at the gym suggested. I figure that is probably a bit too cautious. If the fingers started to get so fucked I can’t write (I’m a student) then I will discontinue, but nothing short of that. Unless a doctor tells me I am doing permanent damage, then I’d consider discontinuing.
Anyone who has any ideas or any experience with this bullshit please give me feedback.
