Nerve problem: Ask your doctor or a neurologist to find the cause. There is a muscle problem in keeping the fingers up and site of problem has to be evaluated. These muscles are controlled by nerves and may just be compressed or there is damage. Atrophy of involved muscles may be seen. Also test lytes as you are on Nexium (esomeprazole) and can affect magnesium level although it usually causes twitching instead if low. ...Read more

Hello. : Hello. I noticed that you have tagged both panic attacks and seizures here. I will start by describing panic attacks. Panic attacks are usually brief. They often last a couple of minutes to around ten minutes. Symptoms can include a sense of severe anxiety or panic as well as chest tightness or pain and a rapid or pounding heartbeat. There could also be areas of numbness or pins and needles type sensation. A person can experience hot flashes or chills and perspire heavily. There may be a tickle sensation in the stomach or nausea. When a person has a panic attack they may feel dizzy or faint and may become physically shaky. The person may fear that they are going crazy, they are out of control or that they are about to die. They may have a sense that they are unreal (a form of dissassociation called depersonalization). The sense that everything in the environment feels abnormal is derealization. Although what you are describing sounds a lot like a panic attack; it is very important to have a full physical evaluation to rule out the possibility that this a medical problem. I recommend that you be evaluated by your family doctor. He or she may consult with a neurologist. Clearly these episodes feel really bad, so i hope you get a medically evaluated soon. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I was a goalkeeper and stopped a read fast ball with my hand. my hand fold all the way back and since then my hand hurts when I fold it to the back. every other movement is ok. what can it be?
Sprain/strain: How long ago was injury? It sounds like you strained/strained your wrist (well, more correctly, a ligament/tendon/muscle). Cold packs are useful immediately after an injury. Since all other movements are ok, I'm less suspicious for fractures & dislocations. But if pain persists or gets worse or prevents you from doing your normal daily activities, I'd recommend seeing your Family Doc or Sports Med ...Read more
