problems after the F4T

So returned from the flat 4 yesterday, since then my index and thumb have been numb to any feeling. I'm guessing its a pinched nerve in my hand somewhere. A guy at work said that swealing in my hand from the long ride could cause it and I should wait a few days and see if the feeling comes back in my hand. Any input?



on lighter note: I have tried drinking, pouring Vodka directly on my fingers, and even putting peatnut butter on them and letting the dog lick it off... none of those have worked so far.

sounds like a good time to perform the "stranger"...
a crude self pleasuring technique...

Kidding, hope you feel better.. I would give it a few days.
After my F4T, my hands had a tingling feeling for a while complete with swelling.
Two days later it was gone.

I had this for a while a couple of weeks ago. There was a little swelling, but after two days without riding, it went away and the feeling came back.

Alex, take two aspirin and call me in the morning. The aspirin will reduce the inflamation that is causing the swelling.

Throttle rocker and/or a throttle lock helps a ton while riding for long periods of time.

I remember my pointer finger on my left hand was tingly and numb for weeks a few months ago.....We rode about 400 miles one day....and then one day I woke up and I was like "Hey" It feels normal again....cool....I think it was just a pinched nerve...probably what you have.

I had the same problem after the last F4T in June. The throttle rocker resolved the problem since I didn't have that problem after this ride.

Also, it took me like 3-4 days before the numbness subsided.

On a positive note you can pretend that you are getting some strange with the numb hand.

Chunky or Creamy? The difference is out of this world
