Cardiologist 's  Response
Hello,

I would explain that your symptoms could be related to a pinched nerve or local inflammation.

For this reason, I would recommend performing a hand X-ray study, nerve conduction studies and inflammation tests (complete blood count, PCR, ESR).

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Regards,
Dr Ilir Sharka, Cardiologist
