Swollen reddish fingers with itching on the knuckles. Severe pain in the arms with tingling. Need help

Hi. My fingers are red and swollen but my knuckles are white and they itch like crazy. I have for the past 5 months been waking up in the middle of the night with sever pain in my arms from the shoulders to my fingertips. I am exhausted, my coordination is off. My arms and hands are tingly constantly. When the pain wakes me up the only way to make it go away is to walk around for an hour or so. If I am awake when it starts, I hold my arms out but bent down at the elbows the pain and numbness subsides. HELP

Hi welcome to Health care magic forum. What is missing is your age, It appears it is neuropathy secondary to hypertension, or diabetes, or old age. I advise you to consult a physician for diagnosis and treatment.
You may need to have M.R.I.scaning besides other routine tests for diagnosis of any cerebral ischemia.
As anaemia also play a role in this, i advise you to follow some diet recommendations as take more of green leafy vegetables, pulses, sprouts, milk, egg, meat, and sea foods to provide body with iron, proteins, vitamins and antioxidants to cure it by natural way.
Avoid taking, potato, other tubers, tomato, cauli flower, and coconut, till you get complete relief of the symptoms.
Wishing for a quick recovery and thanks for calling.
