One hands fingers are sometimes colder than the others. Have pain in that arm sometimes. 2 drs say pinched nerve and doesn't seem concerned.  No tests?

Cold fingers: Many potential causes. Exam findings can lead doctors to suspect Carpel Tunnel Syndrome as a cause. If symptoms moderate, meds such as steroids or nsaids can help. Nighttime splinting, using an ergonomic keyboard, heat pads and stretching/yoga can also help. Causes of isolated cold fingers can also include autoimmune diseases like lupus or Raynaud's, med or toxin effect, mycoplasma, or your EDS ...Read more

Saw 2 pa's one said cervical nerve, one said entrapped nerve, now pain in my elbow and below (right arm) index and middle fingers numb and tingling?

Both are right: You likely have a compression of the nerve that runs from your neck to the fingers.....Either where it originates in the neck or somewhere along the course of the nerve, such as near the elbow. You will likely need a test called an EMG to pinpoint where the problem is located. ...Read more
