Have you ever injured your neck? Or is it possible you may have herniated disks in the cervical spine? Possibly one place to look.

Have a pain specialist evaluate you to determine if you meet criteria for complex regional pain syndrome.

Specializes in Pain Management

Cold and swollen fingers with pain may be the symptoms of complex regional pain syndrome (crps) which can occur after a hand surgery. You should get proper treatment from a pain specialist to halt the debilitating process. Only a proper examination can diagnose crps. Sometimes a bone scan may help confirm the diagnosis. Good luck.
