About a month ago I started having finger numbness while sleeping. This eventually turned into pain in my hand and forearm. I now find it hard to sleep.
Went to my doctor and was diagnosed with Carpal tunnel syndrom and given braces to wear at night. This unfortunately did not work and I went back to another doctor who has set me up for a MRI and thinks I have Degeneritive Disk Desease.
This is extremely scary to me. I have most pain at night in the top of my hands. Pain goes away if I sit up or rub them.Paim is worst while trying to sleep. From what I have read I may have a pinched nerve. The other scary thing for me is that I am claustrophobic and wearing a neck brace may do me in. Any advice?
