Suggest treatment for arm numbness

I had a c section with my son and about a week after I had him my thumb pointer and middle if get have been numb some times they tingle if I stain to use them but most ther times I just do not have sensation in them. I can still move and use them. This was 2 years ago, recently I have been havin more complications such as shooting pains Ito my hands and my arm is going numb of and on. The doctor I was seeing told me it was carpal tunnel syndrome gave my a shot I. My wrist and braces to wear at night. I have done what he has asked and am still having problems. The doctors did a nerve study and showed nothing wrong and I tried to tell him there was something wrong regardless of what his tests show and he told me I was faking it. 2 years later I m still having issues an this is obviously not fake pain any suggestions?

Are you a diabetic? Do you have Neck pain? If yes then the problem could be different. You are also likely to have nerve compression problems which was suspected in your prior consultations which must have aggravated, however at what level it varies and needs clinical evaluation, with nerve conduction studies with or without MRI. Kindly review with you Ortho doc
