For about a month now (since I got off the bike) my right hand has constantly been numb. I believe it has to do with a bicycle fall I had months ago (when a delivery guy motorcyclist decided it was a good idea to climb on to the sidewalk and charge at me full speed ahead)..
It was a painful fall, but at that moment I had no other choice but to get up and pedal my way back home (for another couple of miles); the pain receded quickly as I kept on commuting daily, but exactly since I got off the bike a month ago (courtesy of a thief) the numbness began, and has been getting stronger since then, to the point where I'm getting more worried.
I also use the PC's mouse with that hand, so that may also have something to do with it; however, the numbness started manifesting itself exactly as I got off the mtb, so I'm guessing that's the main probable cause, somehow.
I'm going to set up an appointment with a hand specialist; however (and since this seems to be a cycling-specific injury), I'd like to ask you good people which things could probably be causing this, things I should be looking at, some exercises, advice, etc.
I'm not asking for an official medical diagnose of course; just general ideas, or tips on how to proceed with this.
