In brief: Cervical pathology

Have you ever injured your neck? Or is it possible you may have herniated disks in the cervical spine? Possibly one place to look.

In brief: Cold fingers

Cold and swollen fingers with pain may be the symptoms of complex regional pain syndrome (crps) which can occur after a hand surgery.
You should get proper treatment from a pain specialist to halt the debilitating process. Only a proper examination can diagnose crps. Sometimes a bone scan may help confirm the diagnosis. Good luck.
