For 3 weeks I have been having the most random and sporadic ring finger pain. It randomly started 3 weeks ago when I used my hand and wrist to prop myself outta bed. It's my left hand ring finger and the nerve pain is only on the thumb side. When I extend my arm in the wrong way, I sometimes get the most vicious pain up that one side of my ring finger for like 5 seconds. I typically scream, then 5 seconds later it's gone. Then the same side of my finger is lightly numb and tingly and that continues.
Really worried as this pain is unbearable for the 5 seconds when it happens and I've tried wearing a brace at night to promote healing, but this keeps happening once a day. Any clue what is going on with me?
