Hello all,

I am Lebanese man 26 years old. I have BS. computer science and MBA. I also play music (keyboard). Five years ago, I was practicing on my keyboard when I had a very sharp pain in my right ring finger's left side (the side near to the last finger). I went to the Dr. and he put a splint and did not work because pain has increased by the splint. I went to another Dr. and took many NSAIDs and my situation did not heal. Then a Dr. recommended to do a surgery because he told me that I have an inflammation in the tendon and he wants to release it. My situation got worst after the surgery where pain started to go up to my neck. Then I was given Cortisone both injections and tablets and did not work. I also took Nuritine and did not work. Recently I had 3 nerve blocks for pain and also did not work. Recently also I hurt by back and I have been in pain since 6 months. Now I have pain in my hand (only the ring finger), neck and back, and the Dr. could not know what are the reasons.

Please advise what should be done?????? What tests should be done??? what X-Rays/ MRI should be done... I am very pessimistic...... please help me to continue my life normally. I don't trust Dr.s anymore.......
