I've been dropping things for years before being diagnosed. I don't have carpal tunnel, I'm sure, and my hands and fingers are pretty strong. I feel it's something else, like my coordination is just challenged, like the signals to my hands just don't always work to tell them to hold on and let go when they're supposed to. The reason I say this is I also sometimes type backwards, the right hand finger before the left, when I mean to do the other, it's like I don't control my fingers that well. Glad to find out that I'm not the only one, whatever the reason!
