I'm new to this site and hoping someone out there will be able to help.
A few weeks ago my wife started to have "pins and needles" in the small and ring finger of her left hand. This led to complete numbness, to which she couldn't even feel a pin being pricked into them. Since then she has suffered either immense pain or total numbness.
Recently those two fingers started moving involuntarily, either twitching or seperating from the others, i can only describe it as becoming the vulcan greeting that Spock uses in Star Trek.
Last night she suffered unbearable pain and said the fingers felt like they were swelling to the point she felt they would explode, then without warning her small finger started to rise up to a near 90 degree from her flat hand and stayed like that for approximately 20 minutes. The only time i've ever witnessed a finger in that position is a broken one.

She is a scultor of 1 1/2th dolls house dolls so uses her hands in her work.

The hospital initially said they could find no problem like Carpal Tunnel Syndrome etc and sent her home.

Anyone got any ideas or suggestions that could help please?
