    Does anyone suffer from it with wfp?
    Been getting numb hands, pins and needles in my fingers and sore hands.
    Possibly due to gripping too tightly.

    not when window cleaning i dont, but when doing the property maintenance work i do at times, feels like your hand mussles lock up.

    problem is arthritis in the hand, knees and other joints run in the family too!

    only reason I know about it is my mate had to have an op because of this. sounds similar symptoms and only gets worse if doing the same thing every day. he had to start using his other hand before he got it sorted lol

    Think a doctors appointment is due then really, better to do it now before gets too painful. Don't want to miss any work.

    Yep I get the same. It's usually due to holding the pole wrong when rinsing.

    Like how can you hold a pole wrong? If you're right handed, right hand towards the bottom and left hand further up the pole. Unless you contort your hands?
