Left hand

I keep loosing control of my left hand it keeps tightening up and I have to prying it open with my right hand.  It will not stay open by itself. This only lasts  a few minutes but it's been happening more frequently.  I had a brain anuerysm a little more than a year and a half ago.  My neurologist says everything is fine. I can't but feel someithing is wrong.

Have you heard of Alien hand syndrome? I was looking up the neuroscience of handedness, particularly the left hand and I came across this, which sounds like it could be what you are dealing with, however I am not a professional and you should always seek the advice of your Neurologist(s) as well as 2nd and 3rd opinions from other doctors. Here is the link.
