About 2 weeks ago I switched from high bar to low bar squats. This forced my elbows back and has be in a bearable yet uncomfortable hand position. i didnt think too much of this until a week later (3-4 days ago). I woke up with pins and needles in my left hands two smallest fingers and a bit of that side of my palm.
This has persisted and having read up on it id say its a mild form of carpal tunnel syndrome.
Does anyone have an experience in this area? It doesnt effect my grip now....will it if left to develop?
The advice says to get it looked at asap, and I am getting a GP to see me tomorrow morning.
However i know ill just get told to stop lifting which im loathe to do.
From what ive read 5% of the population have a mild for of this and it is most often related to sleeping on your hands or repetitive strain from typing etc.
So do I tell the doc i lift? if i dont he might actually treat me or offer behavioural advice that could help. but if he hears that i pin my hand to my shoulder with 120kg of weight 3 times a week then ill get told to stop before further measures are put into place!
