    For the past week, I've been awakened in the middle of the night by excruciating pain in the three fingers (no thumb or pinky problems) of my right hand. At the same time, these fingers are numb. The episodes last for 45-60 minutes. Then two nights ago, I started to see swelling  beneath and between the pointer and the index fingers.  Those same right fingers tingle and/or go numb throughout the day. For the past three days I have dropped various items on the floor. 

    I asked my primary doctor about it and she referred me to an orthopedic MD. I haven't seen him yet. Any help you can offer in the meantime would be wonderful!
