Have stiff neck, pain and numbness on finger tips with swollen veins. Taking vicodin. Underlying cause?
Thanks for posting your query.
The pain and numbness in your fingertips is likely to be due to overstretching of the nerves in your armpit. It is less likely to develop varicose veins suddenly without any history of pooling of blood in the area. Also, Varicose veins are not likely to be associated with numbness and pain in the fingertips.
The treatment involves mild pain killers and methylcobalamin supplements with adequate rest to the arm. You need to avoid all overhead activities and avoid lifting any weights.
The symptoms are likely to subside in two weeks of treatment. In case the symptoms are persistent then do consult a neurologist for a physical examination.
I hope this answers your query.
In case you have additional questions or doubts, you can forward them to me, and I shall be glad to help you out.

Thanks for writing again.
The overstretching of the arm and a pressure on the armpit can cause the arm to sleep, pain and numbness in your arm and fingers.
The swelling of the basilic vein is not likely to be related to the stretching.
Hope my answer is helpful.
