I have had this pain in my right hand / thumb going on 2 years now. I have been to more than 10 different specialists and still do not have an answer to what is causing this. I have had 2 nerve conduction tests, a nerve block, 3 MRI's on hand and wrist and spinal cord, several blood tests, x-rays, and a sonogram done. These all showed nothing wrong. I have been prescribed vitamin B supplements, pain killers, fish oil and none of these helped. Specialists range from chiropractors, a hand surgeon, neurologist, rheumatoid arthritis specialist, etc.

None of them have been able to diagnose what is causing this.
The pain feels like it is shooting up a nerve from my right wrist to the top of the thumb. It hyper sensitive on both sides and the slightest tough is very painful. My thumb will twitch uncontrollably on occasion if it get really aggravated. I can also feel a small bump on the bottom of my palm. It feels like the nerve is raised up in that area almost sticking out a little bit. Can anyone give me any answers to what this might be?
