Intermittent Hand Pain
Some ideas: Carpel Tunnel Syndrome can give hand and shoulder symptoms- usually more symptomatic at night. With trauma you can injure your neck and have referred pain that you feel in shoulder and hand. It is a common combination for those who suffer paralysis from a stroke - but not usual in someone your age. You will need a Neurologist or Physical Medicine Doctor to sort it out if it persists- Good luck
Yes: We need to determine the cause and then we can begin the treatment. So go see your doc for an exam to learn the problem.
Identify cause: If there is an abnormality, the cause needs to be identified. It can be tendon/joint problems (arthritis, tendinitis, etc.) or nerve disease (carpal tunnel syndrome, etc.). Many of these conditions are treatable and the tests (blood work, x-rays, nerve conduction tests) are simple and helpful. If no abnormality is found, the problem may be ergonomic.

Yes: Yes, but if the pain does not disappear, the cause needs to be identified. It can be tendon/joint problems (arthritis, tendinitis, etc.) or nerve disease (carpal tunnel syndrome, etc.). Many of these conditions are treatable and the tests (blood work, x-rays, nerve conduction tests) are available through your regular physician. If no abnormality is found, the problem may still be ergonomic.See 1 more doctor answer

Poss. Nerve injury: I see a few patients a month with persistent pain after IV placement. This can be due to a hematoma formation or nerve injury. Recommended treatment is warm compress for the hematoma and contrast compress (hot and cold) for nerve injury. Prescription topical creams and therapy may be helpful. Symptoms usually resolve spontaneously, but tis can take u to a year. See a hand surgeon for an eval.

Best start: The best start would be with a primary care physician or a rheumatologist. The cause needs to be identified. It is usually tendon/joint problems (arthritis, tendinitis, etc.) or nerve disease (carpal tunnel syndrome, etc.). Many of these conditions are treatable and the tests (blood work, x-rays, nerve conduction tests) are simple and helpful.
Well: First you need to give a good history. Such as did you injure the hand? How did the pain begin. This is where you start then you will have a hand exam and go from there
Impossible to say: There are numerous causes. Have the hand evaluated if you areconcerned.
