A few months ago i started to feel a very sharp pain that i can only say it feels like a shock of electricty, Like being shocked by a sparkplug wire.. It happens only to the back side of my left hand. And has become more frequent. It just happened 4 times in the last 5 min. before that this afternoon but only 2 times. Blood pressure is 130/80. I feel no pain in my chest or arm. No shortage of breath..past med problems C5/C6 ruptured disk in 2002. Surgery to fuse the area was not done,the Doc turned me down. Since 2002 have had constant pain in the shoulder blade,left arm and the back of my neck. I do take meds for that pain but only when i can not stand it anymore. I do not like the side effects of the meds. *mri done in 2007 doc said it looks exactly like the one in 2002. Not sure which direction i should take.I dont want to wast time with selecting the wrong doctor.
