my husband has had severe hand pain in both hands since Oct. when he had back surgery for spinal stenosis. The pain is getting worse. He says it feels like someone is putting needles in the tips of his fingers. He cannot close his hands all the way and has alot of swelling as well as they feel warm to touch. He cannot sleep, eat, sit etc. they bother doing most everything. Especially just sitting they even bother. He says they even look somewhat blue to him, however I haven't noticed that yet.
we have been told it is arthritis and just cannot believe it. It came on so suddenly in both hands and is getting worse each day.
