Numbness in throttle hand??

I have been loosing circulation of blood in my index, and thumb for sometime now. I have used my lower body to take the weight off my hand, but still happens. I bought a pair of XL gloves, and trying them out tomorrow. Any thoughts?

I get the same thing in right hand only, being a auto tech my whole life, I blame it on using impacts and air chisels forever, well over 30 years, usually starts tingling after 15-20 minutes, corpal tunel??

Humm, I am left handed, but used hydrolic impact wrenches under water for years with my right hand.

It happens to me every time I ride. I adjust my position on the bars and completely relax my hands and it seems to go away but i have to make a conscious effort.

Lets face it Craig.......we're getting old.

you damage the joints in your fingers every time you ride, it is caused by the vibrations.

it is common problems which happens to a lot of racers and people who work with power tools

I was a front end specialist for several years and did sometimes 8 sets of ball joints a day and wore out 3 or 4 heavy duth snap on air chisels in several years, I,m sure all that hammering did some nerve damage

Same issue here. Also use impact wrenches at work. Left handed tho. I always thought it was cause I was gripping tight due to being so excited I was out riding! Haha! Stretching fingers every now and then seems to help circulation and restore feeling for me.

I do the same, just hate grabbing the clutch to get the feeling back in my throttle hand.

My only real concern is near the end of some sessions (during trackdays) I loose a bit of feeling in my right hand so have to be extra carefull with throttle and ft brake applications, as some of the feeling goes away, If its too bad I just pull in early or slow down

usually, about 30 minutes to an hour into a ride, my hand will start getting numb--I can adjust my hand position to get the blood flowing again, but once the numbness comes on, the relief from adjustment only seems to last a few minutes before my hand starts tingling again--my gloves fit well, too--I've had this problem ever since I got back on a bike as well, so you're not alone

I experience loss of circulation and numbness when I wear my gauntlets. It doesn't happen as much when I wear my icon mesh gloves. I think this is bc of the fitment. With my gauntlets, they loosen when I curl my hand over the throttle (like bunch up in my palm) and I think I start gripping harder and harder without realizing it because the throttle starts moving with the slight looseness in the glove. Gloves fit tight when my hand isn't curled over the bars. Dno if this is related.

. Didn't realize how common this is. My two middle fingers go numb on my right hand. Most of mine started a couple months ago when I over stress it mounting a tire. Old fart here and that's my only pain, so I can't complain.
