I have had problems with my right shoulder for at least 15 years, and one of the issues I have is numb fingers. It’s not carpal tunnel – they figured out years ago (thanks to fun rounds of testing – oh, so fun) that it originates with a nerve all the way up in my shoulder.
Trying to crochet a few months ago was almost impossible. Almost every time I worked on something, I would have a numb arm the next day. Working on a computer with a numb hand? Not fun.
Knitting is better, especially when I knit Continental. Unfortunately, I don’t purl well that way, so I’m still throwing with my right hand. I’m very cautious though, and stop if I notice any pain.
Anyone else have any tips?
