Extreme pain in hands

@lhenry Hi and welcome. I feel very much the same as you, in my hands. I'm sorry to hear of your pain. I have small fiber polyneuropathy and thus far is my only reasoning. My hands are not consistent with pain descriptions. The feelings vary…they could feel right, ache. throb, feel like broken bones (my description is that someone stepped on them with steel workboots). I've had the feelings of catheters being simultaneously injected into the top of my hands. The days vary with types and intensity of pain. Use of my hands/fingers is an igniter. Gripping tightly or picking up something heavy. Texting, typing make worse.

I relate to much of your story and was B12 deficient also. It was the cause of my neuropathy. I received injections for months until my levels were healthy again. I take oral supplementation now to maintain. By regulating B12, I did notice many things improve but, feel the nerve damage was already done and irreversible.

I wish you all the best in your quest to find answers and love the fact you realize you are your advocate and responsible to search for the answers. Keep at it!

*tight, not right
My hands never feel "right".
