Hi
Thanks for posting your query on HCM
I have read and understood your concern.
From the nature of your job, your symptoms may be caused by work-related stress.Other possible causes may include: peripheral neuropathy, ionic imbalances, vitamine deficiency, fibromyalgia...
I will suggest you try to take off time to rest, eat well and healthy with enough vegetables, take B complex vitamins and regular massage. If symptoms persist, you see the Doctor for examination.
Hope this will help.You may write back if more concerns
Best regards
