Have experienced pain in left hand (right handed person), specifically ring and middle fingers. Started like electrical shock down my fingers. Finger tips become very sensitive. Pain is worse when I lay down and also very sensitive to cold weather. Now I have I noticed that when my hand is hurting, my fingertips are warm. Other people can feel the difference in temperature between my hands. I have been to hand specialist and neurologists. Am currently on Lyrica, 75 mg twice a day and am in considerable pain. Pain takes my breath away sometimes, keeps me up at night and affects how I do things daily. Have been tested for carpal tunnel several times and also have had MRI's of my hand, neck and shoulders. Hand also seems worse when my shoulder and neck are bothering me -- have done office work for close to 20 years. Am 43 yr female.
