Hello @lhenry — Welcome to Connect. We are glad you found us. I have peripheral neuropathy mostly in my legs and I also have carpal tunnel syndrome in both hands but mostly my left one. While my hands sometimes hurt and are stiff, I've never had the type of pain you are describing. Are you able to get a referral to a hand specialist? I have no medical training or background but I would definitely want another opinion if I were in your shoes.
As far as vitamin B6 and B12 reversing the pain, I would ask the doctor how do the vitamins reverse the pain. I would especially worry about vitamin B6 as it is different than other B vitamins and can give you toxicity from high levels of B6.
Have you had any injuries to the left hand? Pinched or damaged nerves can cause pain like you are describing.
