The first thing to consider, is whether there is a physical cause for these feelings. There are any number of causes of strange feelings in the hands
that have a purely (or mainly) physical basis. You might consider getting a physical checkup to eliminate the possibility of a physical cause. One
cause that comes to mind is carpal tunnel syndrome, which often manifests as the sensations you describe. But there are also many others, including
diabetes, vitamin deficiencies, and even certain types of toxins. I'm telling you to see a doctor simply because, if you don't rule out the
physical possibilities, it makes no sense to worry about other possibilities. By far, physical causes are more often responsible for these sensations
than energetic causes.
If you have ruled out a physical cause (and only then), you should consider what you are doing with your energy practices. Are you practicing at all
now, following some discipline? If you are just playing around with energy, you may be creating imbalances, sending more energy (say, into the
hands), and not allowing it to flow back from the hands. Most energy work relies on the *flow* of energy, not just the accumulation of it. There
are practices for circulating the chi, for example, that involve a complete circle, not just sending it out or to some particular location.
As for chi and ki - I don't know what you mean when you speak of them as separate energies. To my understanding, ki is the Japanese pronunciation of
chi, the Chinese word for "air" or "fluid", the life force. Prana in the Ayurvedic tradition. Perhaps you have studied under a school that makes
a distinction, but it is not one that I recognize.
If you have no studied under a teacher, and if you have already seen a doctor, then I encourage you to seek out a decent teacher who deals with
