Thanks for writing in.

Your husband might have developed Complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS) or reflex sympathetic dystrophy which is a condition of intense burning pain, stiffness, swelling, and discoloration that most often affects the hand. Please consult his doctor and discuiss his condition in detail.
