i have been dealing with this problem for close to 8 years. I've read multiple forums and haven't found too many descriptions that match my condition exactly.
I have pain/tingling/numbness in both hands, mostly focused on the fifth fourth and third fingers, but the thumb and first finger have them also. the symptoms radiate through my hand into my palm. THe pain goes through to me elbow on the underside of my forarm, and also over the top. i have elbow pain/bothersom feeling on the inside of me elbow and stifness going up through my pec and shoulder into my back. Lately my hands feel extremely cold any time i have to type or do things that require movement of my fingers.
I am usually tired but not overly so (i try to sleep right but usually am getting 6-7 hours). I am in the gym at least 5 days a week, sometimes 2x a day, i ski 50+ days a year, and have recently started doing Crossfit. None of this seems to affect my symptoms one way or the other.
i have seen my GP, hand surgeon, phsyiatrist, phsyical medicine, PT, and orthopedic surgeon. Multiple people in most of those specialties. My next stop is a couple neoroligists. This problem is affecting my life ie i've had to quit jobs and can't plan for my future. i'm 25 years old and incredibly healthy otherwise. I did drank hard in college, which i've since cut down on drastically, rarely smoke, and eat well. I avoid other drugs.
Can anyone please help me? Just a solid point in the right direction would be amazing.
