:( Hello, I am hoping someone out there can help me. I have pain in both hands and worse at night. Everynight i am awoken with this severe burning in my hands and fingers, especially in between the 2-3rd fingers. This is the worst pain i have every had in my life. During the day my hands are stiff and sore. On my left hand the tips of my fingers (1,2,3) are numb. It is also hard for me to make a fist d/t pain and stiffness. I cannot even pick up a coffe cup in the am without extreme pain. This is starting to affect my life and I very frustrated with Dr.'s. They seem to think I am a drug seeker and since there is no concrete diagnosis (I had nerve conduction test that was normal) (all lab work is normal) will not perscribe me any pain medication. I do not know what to do - If anyone knows or has the same thing and can offer advice it would greatly be appreciated.
