    I keep dropping stuff and it's infuriating me. One minute I'm holding something the next it's on the floor, seriously irritating. I also pick stuff up and suddenly it just slips from my hands and luckily most of the time I catch it on the fall (cricketing reactions lol). It's not like where it happens periodically, just every now and again, anyone have the same problem. It could be to do with my hand eye coordination, but I play squash and cricket and have had no real problems in doing either :dontknow: Help?

    It could be the onset of parkinsons, or some other deep-seated neurological defect.
    I'd seriously recommend seeing your GP as soon as possible.

    I drop stuff and forget stuff all the time.

    If it persists perhaps have a word with your GP but otherwise it may just be random or that you're tired.

    Yeah of course, if you are holding onto something and for some unknown reason you release your grip without meaning to, it's likely a neurological problem.

    If the OP is just being clumsy or has sweaty palms, that's a different issue. However if it is literally not being able to grip things, it could be the onset of neuromotor disease, it could be a severed nerve, Quadraplegia, Huntingdons', or it could be even be sensory-motor polyneuropathy. Next thing you know you lose all feeling in your hands and feet.

    Consult your GP and he'll most likely refer you to a neurologist.

    Repeatedly dropping stuff can be a sign of early-onset finger cancer.
