6/f/3p26.3 duplication (GDD, small stature). Unusually cold, sore, red, swollen hands in cold weather. Not improved upon warming near heater 30mins.

6/f/3p26.3 duplication (GDD, small stature). Unusually cold, sore, red, swollen hands in cold weather. Not improved upon warming near heater 30mins.

Not enough cases: I found only 2 other cases reported of a duplication of 3p26.3. One is from New Zeland. She sounds like she could use heated mittens in the cold--available at ski shops. Impossible to say whether it is related to the duplication. You could contact the authors of this publication--I'm sure that they would be fascinated to see her. http://www.hindawi.com/journals/crig/2014/295359/ ...Read more

Get another x-ray: If you still have pain, and it is increasing, there is a chance you had a non displaced fracture that did not show up on initial x-ray. Consider a repeat x-ray about 2-3 weeks later. If still negative, consider soft tissue sprains that will take more time to heal. See a hand specialist if there is still concern. ...Read more
