Thanks for your query.

I will try my best to provide you with best possible professional recommendations to your questions.

Just wanted to know is there any history of trauma or do you have diabetes . your symptoms suggest there could be some trauma which you might be unaware.

I advice you to take some analgesics to relive pain , and hot compression to your upper limb.

If the symptoms are not relived then consult orthopedician for proper diagnosis and treatment .

Yet again, I do hope that you have found something helpful and I will be glad to answer any further query.

Hope i have cleared your queries. If you do not have any clarifications, you can close the discussion and rate the answer


it is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps.
