Sharp finger pain

I was diagnosed with fibro in 2007 & have a new pain that I've never felt before. I'm wondering if it's related to fibro. It's a sharp, stabbing, intermittent pain in my middle & ring finger of my right hand. It can also spread down to my knuckle. Sometimes it bothers me in the middle of the night, other times it's during the day (like right now!). I put heat on it & it feels better although the pain remains. Has anyone else dealt with this? It sure is irritating & sometimes keeps me from sleeping &/or wakes me up.

Re: Sharp finger pain

I have this too. It comes from a mildly pinched nerve in my shoulder. Try moving your neck and shoulder around. If the pain changes when you move your arm or neck, but not when you bend your finger, that's probably the cause.

Re: Sharp finger pain

Thanks for the info. I actually had an unrelated doc appt today & mentioned the pain. My doc thinks I have a pinched nerve in my shoulder & scheduled an MRI. It's always something, isn't it?
