I was born with a hand that has a thumb but no working fingers. my index, middle, ring, and pinky fingers are all about 2 inches long i am a 52 year old woman and until this day no one can tell me what my condition is. My symptoms are nerve damage in my right hand cause i have to use it more than using my left hand. I also have tingling in the fingers in my right hand. I am in cronic pain and it seems as though my primary care doctor does not want to help me. There for i feel like im alone with this. It is affecting my pesonal life and my life with my grandchildren. I cant pick them up without someones help and with the help i cant hold them for long periods of time. Im on pain medication that doesnt work. While going through this by myself i feel like if these issues continue without help i will permanetly be disabled. This is what i fear the most.
