    There is a strange numb and tingling feeling in my wrist and hand near the pinky finger whenever I throw a jab. It almost feels like its getting shocked very lightly by a taser or smth. Does anyone know whats going on? I cant find anything on google

    When you land the jab, which part of your hand makes contact?

    If it feels like an electric shock I always attributed it to a nerve. If its numbness it could be a blood supply issue. I'm not a doctor so I would go see one and get his opinion. It might be as simple as a sports massage to free it.

    Was it happening when you hit a pad? Or was it just at the point of overcommittal to an air shot?

    Anything harder/faster than a very slow jab i.e. something you would do for a beginner to see and follow would set it off

    See a doctor.

    It’s not likely but anything that involves nerves and tingling could be a sign of something wrong like neurologically or blood-flow wise in a way that could lead to a stroke.

    Show and tell the doctor what you’re experiencing.

    Well I would have gone to a doctor immediately but I have literally just had a minor operation to get a lymph node removed from my other wrist. I hate to be one of those chronic patients but I guess j will go now

    A way-too-young (30s) friend of mine just had a minor stroke. He had some numbness issues. It’s not something to mess around with.

    Better to be a temporarily chronic patient and find out before something bad happens than to brush it off.

    I'll bet my bottom dollar he's wrapping his hands too tightly.

    I know everyone likes to use the washable elastic stretch wraps these days, but if they're new they can constrict your blood flow. That's why I always preferred my thicker fiber 1980's specials. They looked ugly but they didn't morph or constrict on you as they got wet / hot. Everything new is rubbish.
