My daughter’s left hand looks swollen or as some doctors say - puffy.
She is only 22 month old and obviously cannot give us clear explanation (neither verbal nor written) if she fills any pain, numbness etc.
We noticed this problem about 3 month ago and since then went to 3 different pediatricians, hand specialist and now my wife made an appointment with rheumatologist.
None of the pediatricians could explain what is wrong, hand specialist did not find anything wrong (well, beside the obvious – that the hand looks “puffy”).
They all prescribed different blood test – everything is within acceptable range.
X-ray did not reveal any problems either.
We do not see that she has any problem using her left hand.
However, as parents the condition worries us.
Did anyone experienced similar condition, and if yes how did you deal with it?
