User :   I have carpal tunnel, but my hand will also sometimes curl up or twitch really bad.
User :   My thumb will also curl inward and feel really tight, and I get tingling in my pinky and ring finger
User :   I do have anxiety, but I don't think it's the cause. When I sit or drive it seems to get worse, but if I stand it goes away. Could the twitching be parkinsons or ms? I don't have diabetes, already checked that.
