Is there any history: Of an injury or a fall involving the hand or the whole arm or neck area? Is there any numbness or tingling in the pinky/ring fingers? Is pain constant? What brings it on? What relieves it? Has any tests like rays etc been done? If its going on for more than a week or getting worse, then see your doc.. ...Read more

I have pain in the right side of my right hand near the wrist Up through my pinky. I get the pain while gripping objects and twisting/turning doors.

Try wrist brace: There may be a strained tendon or muscle, particularly since it is exacerbated by turning, gripping objects. I would advise a wrist brace and anti- inflammatory agent. ...Read more

Why does both of my hands hurt randomly a deep pain mostly in my left hand? The pain is normally below my thumb or now on the pinky side of my palm.

Hand pain: With the pain localized to the pinky side of your hand, you may have an ulnar nerve compression pain. Try not to lean on your left elbow as this may trigger the pain. If it persists consult your doctor. ...Read more

Numbness/light pain in my left pinky and ring fingers, and side of hand. Maybe spreading elsewhere in hand. Fear of motor neuron disease.

Numbness/light pain in my left pinky and ring fingers, and side of hand.  Maybe spreading elsewhere in hand.  Fear of motor neuron disease.

Don't think so: Hi. What you're describing would be a sensory neuropathy, and given the distribution (ulnar nerve), I suspect it's a physical problem ,not metabolic. Motor neuron disease (aka ALS) only affects nerves to muscles, and leaves sensory nerves alone. I'm not a neurologist, but I feel safe in assuring you this is not motor neuron disease. ...Read more

How long is the pain suppossed to last after proximal row carpectamy? It been 2and a half months most of the wrist and hand are doing ok, but my wrist on the pinky side hurts bad and it seems like something isnt right. My doctor says it normal but i don'

A : A prc or any reconstructive surgical procedure for the wrist may take time before pain fully abates. There are many factors that can cause discomfort. Weakness of grip, as the tendons may time to equilibrate and give full excursion, may be a cause of discomfort. Another may be residual weakness in the flexors or extensor of the wrist with gripping. As we grip our hands fall into a pattern of what is known as ulnar deviation ( turned a little bit towards the little finger side) even in a normal wist you can feel the tension develop on the little finger side as you grip. Imagine you are holding a hammer and you will see what i mean. Other factors may be other areas of your wrist that are arthritic, irritation to nerves or tendons that will likely abate with time. The time period for a wrist to return to full strength varies after prc. There are some who feel it may correlate with the time of immobilization post operatively keep your doctor informed and ask why he or she feels it is normal. Talk to a hand therapist as well if you need help to strengthen. ...Read more
