Just wanted some advice.
My left wrist and hand have ben swollen for about 4 days now (after loads of clicking and cluncking in my wrists and shoulders.)
I visited my GP 3 days ago who said is was just down to my HMS! Later that day I had to attend A & E as I lost the feeling in my little fingers. I was there 5 1/2 hours
Whilst I was there my had went completely into spasm (nurse told me) and looked totally deformed. To be honest I though I had disslocated it or something as it was that mis shapen. Spasms finally calmed down and fingers went back into place with a bit of a clunck. I have also lost most or all of the sensation on the little finger and ring finger.
Nurse told me that it was the unlar nerve being somehow effected and that they could do nothing for me there! Told me to go back to GP and ask to be referred to Rhumy to find out what it going wrong. Advised not to strap it up or anything as they didn't want it to seize up and try to rest it and elevate.
Went back to GP that same day and GP has finally referred me back to Rhuemy. Looked at hand tested reflexes and proded me with a pin to test sensation, which I couldn't really feel on left wrist and also on the left side of same hand and the two smallest fingers.
It has been 4 days now of swelling and is getting no better, infact the swelling is now on my hand at the side where below the little finger. I am in loads of pain and painkillers are doing nothing.
Just wondering what to do? Hospital say they cannot help and doctor is basically waiting for the Rhuemy to do something. Any sort of movement seems to make it worse and more painful
Any advice would be great as I don't know how much longer I can put up with it. Don't want to do more damage or anything if I just try to ignore and wait for Rhuemy appoitment!
