Hi, I'm 11 eleven years old and while I was doing my hair, I felt my left index finger shaking from left to right. It was painful, so I looked at it while it continued to happen. It then stopped, but I'm very worried. I don't know what caused it and what I should do. My mom said it may have been a muscle spasm, but she's not sure. Can anybody give me some insight into this? Thank you.
For the last four or so weeks I have been noticing a tremor in the index finger of my left hand. At first I thought that it was related to nervousness but has occurred when I am calm and not using my hands for anything. I have also had some minor aches in my legs over the last two weeks including a cramp in my left leg during the night. I don't know if the two are related but I am really worried about the finger tremor as it hasn't gone away on its own or in a reasonable time frame.
Numbness in tips of thumb, index finger, and sort of middle finger. Ibuprofen and Naprosyn didn't touch the pain. Neither hot nor cold helped.

The thinking is it will resolve on its own, but PT would help "move it along.

I truly thought it was an old wives tale, but apparently not. I do wonder how someone discovered this though... such a random thing.
