Hello,

The symptoms seem to be related to a pinched nerve in the hand that causes difficulty in lifting weight. I suggest using anti inflammatory medications such as Acetaminophen in case of pain. I also suggest to avoid high weight. If the symptoms continue, you should see a neurologist for further evaluation.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Dorina Gurabardhi, General & Family Physician
