Left Hand Pain: Hello. Need more information. Are you left hand dominant?Any trauma involved? What activities aggravate your left hand pain? Does it stay in your hand or radiate into your wrist or forearm? Might benefit from topical voltaren (diclofenac) gel or lidocaine gel. These would need to be prescribed.
