Help, Help, My Hands Is Possessed

by on Aug.26, 2009, under The Rest

Any fully qualified medical practitioners want to diagnose what the blithering crikey is going wrong with my hand?

It’s been doing it for about a month now, and it’s getting MORE POWERFUL. To the point where it moves my thumb against my will. I’m thinking something like when Ash’s hand gets possessed in Evil Dead 2, but I’m not a proper doctor.

    Coo, thats spooky!

  • Dr. Stoff

    I suggest that you let someone else do the handwork for some time

    Consult a neurologist.

    Might be Carpal Tunnel or RSI. Either way, doctor yourself up.

    I have something similar, where I may accidentally hit the LMB or RMB lots of times. Admittedly, that may be reflex.

    It could be muscle spasm or cramping caused by low levels of magnesium or potassium – eat Chocolate (magnesium) or Bananas (potassium).

    Also, try squeezing a tennis ball in that hand, see if it makes it better or worse. If a tennis ball isn’t handy, try the throat of an enemy.

    Bonne Chance!

    I get this, but not as frequently as it sounds you do. I also find that if I move my hand or flex it, it instantly disappears.

    I don’t think it’s a big health issue. But if it really is getting worse, then go see a Doc. You ever suffer from RSI/tendonitis-style stuff?

    My friend is a physiotherapist and she’s generally said about stuff to me if it’s not painful and there’s no restriction to your movement there’s probably no need to go to a doctor, they won’t do anything unless one of these are the case.

    Maybe it’s your body’s way of telling you to stop tweeting.

  • Rikard

    Been playing Monkey Island much?

  • richard

    Yeah… you definitely have cancer.


    Or maybe a bad case of onanism.
    Definitely one of the two.

    Yeah, I’ve gotten that before. It usually happens when I’ve been not getting enough sleep, I’m drinking too much coffee, or I’m dehydrated for an extended period.

    Since those always seem to occur together, I don’t know if it’s caused by any one of them or a combination of the three.
