Re: Pain in thumb

I often get a numbness in my thumb. Similar to the "waking up" or "ticklish" feeling your foot gets when it falls asleep. I've come to ignore it, but sometimes it's annoying... I've never noticed it happening with the weather, but perhaps it does (temperature has been cold and ra...
