A few years back, my mother had the same problem. Her's turned out to be carpul (spl?) tunnel syndrome. Basically the cartiledge in her wrist was "choking" the nerves that led to her fingers. Because she does alot of repetetive motion such as typing and filing her only relief was very minor surgery on both wrists. She's had no problems at all since!

Here is how Megan is done (all of this is with your dominant hand): M - Make a fist, put your thumb under your first three fingers so it peeks out above the pinky. E - Bend all of your fingers and your thumb at their middle joint and point the tips of your fingers and thumb into your palm. G - Curl all but your pointer and thumb into a fist. Hold your pointer and thumb parallel to each other and pointing towards your other arm. The thumb is behind your pointer finger as your pointer faces the person you're signing to. A - Make a fist with the thumb on the outside of your fingers out to the side and pointing straight up. The rest of your fingers point towards the ground.
