Hello to everyone and thanks for your time in reading this. I know people on here have their own health issues so I am very grateful of any response.
I have read the general forum but I couldn’t really see anything that could answer my issue in my head anyway.
I’m worried about my left hand. It has been feeling weird especially around the thumb area and feels weak and shaky but it’s not what I would call a tremor. I still have strength in it but when I lift some heavier items it feels like it could give way sometimes.
I think there is atrophy in it as well between the thumb and index finger. It is certainly smaller than my right hand. I know all limbs are never the same but this I can’t remember before with this much of a difference. I’m waiting on a doctors appointment at present. Please see attached. I wondering if anyone here could give me any indication of what I am seeing is correct or not.
I was just wondering does atrophy and the weakness come at the same time or am I feeling weakness because the muscle is getting smaller.
Again thank you for your time.
