I know we not doctors but....
Here's my problem/pain. During the night, not every night but say 4 out of 7, I wake up to pain in my wrists and hands. It's a pain in the wrist just below my hand where all those creases are from your hand joining your arm. An area about 1 inch is KILLER PAINFUL. My hands feel like they are being crushed by course cemment blocks. I have to get up out of bed and wring, shake, rub, wait for about 1/2 hour until the pain subsides enough that I can go back to bed or in some cases just stay up. I've had Carpal Tunnel surgery, Guyoen's Tunnel(?) surgery on my left wrist and Cubital surgery done on my left elbow. Nothing done on right hand, but the same pain. I've had tried splints, "ace" bandage wrap some PT person showed me and it hasn't help. Because of other problems I take vicoden(10/325 X4) and valium 2 X3) and Lyrica(150 X2)daily. I know we are not doctor but has any one ever had symptoms like this? Anything I can maybe google and work myself up over?(lol) The lyrica seemed to help at the begining but now I think I just caught a good couple of weeks, the vicoden helps but I don't want to go there any more then where I am. I'm having a second EMG and the pins test done next month - for a stare and compare. Chopping them off really isn't an option I've got littles ones that need to be held.... I hope it not another neck issue.
