Thanks a lot for your input. I am sorry to hear about your problem. I am going to address your primary concern but later you can ask anything you want. This is nerve compression. we call this carpal tunnel syndrome. The compression of the nerve causes a loss of grip. You should start with over the counter available tablet Advil 400 mg thrice daily for 7 days and massage the area with Bengay gel twice daily for 2 weeks. Hopefully, you will feel better but later you should see your doctor. You will need physical therapy and nerve conduction studies to get to the cause. If the medicines don't work, a small surgery can be required but I reassure you that this is treatable and you are going to be alright after the treatment. I wish you good luck and that you get well soon. My goal is to provide you with excellent service – if you feel you have received anything less, please reply back as I am happy to address follow-up questions. Kindly rate me when you are done. You can come back here to ask anything even after you have rated the answer. I will be glad to help you always. A 5-star rating is requested and will be appreciated. Regards
