I have been having the most horrible pain in both my arms and hands it feels like someone is ripping my fingers apart, drilling into my knuckles. My hands, wrists, fingers are so swollen that I can't even wear my wedding rings. I am taking water pills and they reduced the swelling some but not totally. Does anyone else have these problems? I have been to an ortho and he told me that some of its carpel tunnel but most of its neuropathy so doing surgery isn't gonna do me any good. I take gabepentin for the neuropathy but its not helping enough.
