had surgery 10 months ago ,there was no therapy dr said just squeeze a ball,i went for follow ups and when the tap my wrists i still had shooting pains but he said give it a few months.
well i have and i cant drive long distance ,when i sleep i have muscle spasm,i can only right for 2-3 min,cant cook without pain,holding phone in left hand little finger goes numb running up arm ect.... just daily acctivities cant do.
1 week ago i saw new dr she ordered emg well.....its normal wich is not what i exspected
but she asked if i had back pain and no i didnt never untill emg,this may just happend like this i dont know
but they checked below my collar bone on each side since this emg i have not only hands that go numb but sharp pain in center of my backjust below the area they did it

have you considered that maybe you might have fibromyalgia??

You may want to investigate thoracic outlet syndrome.
