Hello gmagarwal. Thanks for visiting The continuous pain in her left hand, her inability to sleep on that side, and the numbness in her left fingers tend to suggest a nerve issue. Also, she has tried most of the other courses of treatment for pain and for nerve issues, so I would advise that she talk to her physician about an MRI.

The MRI may show some nerve impingement resulting from the cervical spondylosis. Nerve impingement if left untreated for long periods of time may lead to permanent nerve damage.

Be well, Dr. Kimberly
