Stabbing Hand Pain

I experience a stabbing, take my breath away pain in my left hand in the area of the palm just below the ring finger. This pain is searing and does not last more than a few seconds. Sometimes within a brief span there will be repeated incidents. Sometimes there is only one incident. It happens irregularly. I have not been able to discern a pattern regarding onset. I have been fully examined by a doctor, an internist, and he did not identify the cause. In recent weeks, these incidents have occurred more frequently, though not every day.

What is causing this pain? What kind of specialist should I see?

Hi there.

This may be due to carpal tunnel syndrome, in which case, an orthopedic surgeon may be more apt to evaluate your condition.  This condition may cause nerve compression which in turn may cause the pain.  Treating this condition may entail injections of steroids or a surgical decompression.  Other nerve problems such as micronutrient deficiency (vitamin B) and stress, may also cause neuropathic pain.

I hope you will be rid of this pain soon.  Regards and God bless.
