I am a 26 year old female. I worked as a data entry clerk for two years. I started experiencing pain in both hands and quit two months later in June. I don't have any numbness or tinging. The pain seems to generate from the base of my thumb and radiates to the entirety of my palm. It doesn't usually extend to my fingers or wrist. There's little swelling and the muscles spazzes occasionally. They get visibly tight and irritated. There is a pulsing vein that runs from my wrist to around the base of my thumb on my right hand and in the middle of my left. I'm not the only who has witnessed this.
I've had blood work, exrays, a nerve conduction study, and an mri. Everything's coming back normal. Other than what i described above they look and feel normal. I've tried rest/splints(5 months), steroid injection, paraffin wax, physical therapy (4 months ongoing) The physical therapy has helped a little. I've regained a lot of my strength and motion range, but the pain is still very prominent. For a while it almost seemed to help the pain as well. It lasted for about two weeks after 6weeks of threrapy before it came back. My doctor and hand specialist has hit a wall. They tell me there isn't anything else that can be done. Is there something they're missing? Any tests that they haven't done, any condition they're overlooking? I can't work. i can't get disablity or worker compensation without a diagnoses. I can't even pick up my dog. I don't know what else to do.
