I cannot get a valid diagnosis.

two months ago, i had massive pain up and down my left arm.

now, i have numbness in the lower part of my palm, my pinky, and the bottom of my index finger

the emg indicates damage at the C8 nerve
my disks are reduced.
the doctors see the mris and cts and think that there is a disk problem, but they cannot say for sure. they want to go on a fishing expedition in surgery.

currently, i am losing a great deal of muscle mass in my left hand where the numbness is.

i sit at a desk and work on a computer 10-11 hours a day.

it is not carpal tunnel nor cubital tunnel.

i do not know what to do.
