I use power tools on my job and occassionally my left :confused: hand will swell so it looks like it will pop and my finger tips get numb. It only hurts due to the intense pressure. It helps a little to hold it straight up then starts to ach and I need to place it by my side (I literally alternate holding it up and down for periods of 10 mins for relief. It goes away after 4-5 days but has reoccured 2xs. My doctor took pictures because it was his "first" but had no answers. Any idea what is happening?
