Recently I've been having problems with numbness in my arms and hands. First time I had experienced this was when I started CFin' and felt it during and after I did OHS. It only ever happened in my left arm and as time went by it went away as shoulder flexibilty increased (I think). Lately though it's been coming back but not while I'm working out but while I'm sleeping and in both arms. It feels like my arms are asleep but they're not asleep as I can't shake them awake and its been waking me up some nights. In the last couple months I've gone from CF to Oly lifting and I figure going from 1000 pull-ups/week to 1000 overhead presses/week might be the cause so I've started to fire off more pull-ups with some success. Originally it was my entire arm but it's sort of moved its way down to just my hands and fingers for right now. I figure its a pinched nerve...
