I have severe pain in the back side of my left hand.
Hello I have over the last one year been experiencing, light pain initially but svere pain now in the back of my left hand. Sos much so that I have trouble going off to sleep at night. I hope the place is clear, back of my hand, under the fingers, behind the palm... kindly advise what to do?
The symptoms of pain at the back of hand, fingers and difficulty to sleep at night may be due to Carpal tunnel syndrome. The syndrome develops due to compression of median nerve at the wrist. Please avoid prolonged work eg. Typing, computer work etc. Please go for MRI of the hand and consult a neurologist for examination, diagnosis and treatment. Hope this helps you. Take care and regards!
