Sensation in hand

I didn't know where to post this but thought someone here might have an answer.

I had ADR C5-6 and 6-7 last March. In the last month the back of my right hand feels like water is being poured down it or cold air being blown across it. It isn't painful, just very unpleasant. I also regularly wake up unable to feel my little and ring fingers. This is in what was previously my good hand. I also have difficulty writing, I find it painful to hold the pen after a couple of sentances and also struggle to compose complete sentances.

My NS says that it could be a trapped ulnar nerve, however, physio tests don't show this to be an issue. I am due to have electro/nerve tests in the next month.

My question is - does anyone else suffer from this cold feeling in the back of their hand and does it have a 'name'?
