Pain like I have never felt....

Hi, my name is Rae, and I have a few questions to ask. I am 34, and I swear I feel like I am falling apart. I am not, and have never been a complainer, but I have had the most incredible pain and numbness in my hands and finger tips for about eight years now. It started out just a little pain, but it has gotten so much worse over the years. I started waking myself up at night crying. The pain feels like neeedles constantly stabbing me in my fingers an hands, EVERYNITE. I also have numbness and tingling
( very painfull tingling) in my finger tips. Could it be CTS, or Arthrites, or what? It is so bad that ....sometimes I wish someone would cut them ( my hands) off.
I know you are probably going to ask why dont I see a doctor. Well, I lost my job of 10 years (lay off). So, I have now Med Ins., and when I did, I was always to busy to take time to go. Biggest mistake (one of) I have ever made.

OH! BUT THATS NOT ALL
The other day I was getting ready to take my daughter to school ad my stomach started to hurt. Not just a "Tummy Ache" but a stabbing pain that was directly beneath my rib cage. I swear, it knocked me to the floor for an hour of praying it would go away. I intantly started sweating buckets, cold sweats. I tried doubling ove, you know it sometimes makes it feel better, it didnt work, (yes, I tried the bathroom as well) All I could do was roll back and forth on my bed until it went away, and when it went away, it did just that. As suddenly it came, it left. I felt as though nothing had happened. I was not sweating any more, and I went on with my day.
The last thing that happend, was that same morning, I was driving and my fingers, went numb. I looked at them, and they where an off white color, but my hands where a blochy, red and off white color. This went on for maybe 30 min. That too came and went suddenly.
Well I have complained enough, allthough I could go on and on, but my hands are killing me as I speak.( or type)

Please, can someone anyone tell me what I might have?
Or, maybe that same someone will cut off my hands.

Thanks,
Rae

Re: Pain like I have never felt....

It's called peripheral neuropathy or just neuropathy. Do a search for it on the internet.
