I am 55 years old and 2 years ago i started feeling numbness on my left 3 fingers and snapping motion on my right pointer finger. I went to the doctor had all possible blood tests....rhumatoid, CBC, liver, thyroid, vit D, and further test for rhumatoid but everything were normal. Although, my doctor prescribe me a medicine for rhumatoid to help me surpass the discomfort and pain. But during the course of the medicine i notice feeling certain pressure behind my head and i know this is a symptom of high blood, i took my BP reading and it was like 180/ 95 . I     never had any blood pressure problem  before because i am very active. I exercise regularly and my eating habits are not that bad. After doing my regular exercise routine blood pressure was normal and i stop the medicine. But when i went for another doctor he discovered i  am hypertensive. I told him in the morning my BP is normal only in the evening it goes up. I had my heart check did an EKG was normal but my BP is always high whenever i go to the doctor. My fingers are more pain ful than ever, i notice some deformities, feeling sensations and the redness is getting more prominent specially at the tip of my fingers.  My joints in my fingers are all sore and feels like electricity passing through. The doctor said i have reynaud syndrome but for some reason i feel that it is a wrong diagnosis because all year round the same pain and discomfort never went away whether it's summer or winter, there was never a moment of feeling normal again. Presently, I am taking hypertensive medicine to control my BP but honestly speaking i really like to stop it but afraid that my blood pressure always hike up at night for no reason at all. No medicine was given for my reynaud syndrome Anybody has any idea what is really causing all these pain?

    Doesn’t sound like raynaulds have pinched nerves in my neck and that sends shocks down my arm to three fingers on my hand and the snapping on your pointer finger is called trigger point is which some nerves in your wrist are inter twinned and pressing hard on each other causing that finger to snap

    Anyway Susan doctor wanted to operate on my neck and fuse two discs after that I wouldn’t be able to turn my neck to look I would have to turn my body to look I told him forget it because I’m miserable to begin with and I don’t feel like being worse plus he wouldn’t guarantee that operation would help and that’s why I say doctors do not know what they’re talking about and it’s all about them making money and using their patients as Ginny pigs I go to pain specialist and I’m on Vicodin for the past 5 years pills don’t work anymore feel like a junkie and for that reason I stopped taking them and I’m on medical Marijuana in Illinois and guess what it is helping I forget all about my pain and screw those pills that are killing everyone

    Susan I forgot before my mri the doctor ordered me a EEG test which test your nerve response from your neck(spinal cord) to your fingers it’s not a fun test cause they shock the crap out of your nerves to get some reading and that is how they can tell if u have pinched nerves The mri then certifies the pinched nerves and now the doctor has a picture of your neck spinal cord to use when he operates
