Strange lump in palm of hand
I'm new to theses boards so please excuse me if my post is answered in another thread somewhere
I'm at a loss so thought id search around and found this forum, hoping someone may be able to give me some advise, i will make it as brief as possible.
I started to get pins and needles and numbness in my left hand in November 2002, my Doctor said it was Carpal tunnel, after referring me to a consultant, he was undecided, in fact said it wasn't and that i needed to have a nerve conductive test, 4 days later i woke in the early hours of the morning with the most agonising pain ever, i couldn't move my hand, my hand was completely paralysed, my Doctor gave me Tramadol, i couldn't use my hand for nearly a week, i had my nerve conductive test two weeks later and it came back normal, i noticed i had a lump appear in my palm, this sometimes is very painful, when i went back to my consultant he decided i should see a Neurologist for further tests, months later i had an MRI scan and an X-ray on my neck, both came back normal, he decided i should have physiotherapy, i did for 4 months and no change at all, so yet again i was referred back to my original consultant, he refused to see me and said he couldn't do no more, so i went back to my doctor who referred me to pain managment....i knew what he would say and i was correct, i need to be seem by my original consultant, im still waiting.
Does anyone here suffer with a lump in the palm of their hand which can be very painful? my middle finger sometimes swells up and i cant bend it at all, not an hour goes by and i don't suffer with a stabbing pain every day
If anyone can offer me any advise id be truly grateful
