Have been to a Sports Med. Dr. who say she's a puzzle and believes it's Vascular, 2 Vascular Drs. who say its not vascular. I should go to pitching specialist for a major baseball team, (OK, I'll just pull one out of a hat) She has also been to a neorologist that said go to a better vascular surgeon. Her University Drs. had a meeting and decided she may have Lympedemia. Need to find a specialist for that. She had all kinds of tests, she does have some disk compression in the neck but all Drs. say won't cause finger to swell like sausages. Swelling only happens when she pitches and now when she does alot of writing. She also has alot of numbness in her arms, but they say that could be from the neck problem.
Any ideas, or Drs. in New Jersey that can help.
