Numbness of hands and fingers

 

Feelings of numbness usually manifest themselves in the form of "fallen asleep" extremities. The trigger for this is insufficient blood circulation in the respective parts of the body, which can be caused by an incorrect posture or position. As a rule, the feeling returns after a short time, accompanied by a tingling sensation (ischemia) in the affected area. 

Feelings of numbness often occur in the fingers when riding a bicycle, as these are subjected to high pressure or the handle of the bicycle favours a misalignment.
