My scenario is 3yrs ago I injured both of my hands which caused pain and swelling for a short time roughly 3-4 days. Over the years, tingling feeling and numbness has slowly increased until one day after several vibrating impacts to both of my hands caused numbness,swelling and needle like sharp pains from my fingers to my forearms, front and back. I have very weak grip strength now and it seems like everything I do with my hands hurt my hands and wrists. I always hear and feel something popping inside both of my wrists and it feels like my hands become hot with a sharp pinching feeling in my wrists under my thumbs and pinky finger. It has been 5months of little to no sleep and pain every time I open my hands. The Docs say I don't know what's going on with your hands when all test have a negative result (x-ray and blood only). I finally got a consult with a hand surgeon and he just gave me a cortisone shot in one wrist, forget the other. It reminded me of the military, "Here's some motrin, now suck it up and drive on". What could the docs be missing or avoiding? Any suggestions that could help?
