Two things i noticed today:
1) I was making a protein drink with breakfast which i prepare by shaking vigorously in a small jar for about thirty seconds (right hand). By the end of the thirty seconds, i began to notice numbness in the ring finger area. When i stopped, it went away. I proceeded to continue shaking, and the numbness returned (albeit more mildly).

2) As i typed this, i started noticing mild numbness in my right hand (ring and pinky primarily). My keyboard setup at home is different than at work in that while typing my forearm muscle is resting on the surface of the desk (as opposed to elbows or any other parts) acting almost as a cushion for the rest of my arm, if that makes any sense.
When i lift my arm to type, the numbness subsides pretty quickly. However, when i return my arm to the desk to type, it's back within thirty seconds or so.

I don't think i've noticed this before; it's definitely something new. Based on what i've seen today, it almost seems like there's some relationship to my right forearm muscle (flexed when shaking the jar; compressed while typing).
My climbing partner bailed on me last night, so i ended up bouldering with my girlfriend (second bouldering day in a row; not out of the ordinary, but i thought i might mention it).
