Customer Question
Hey I’ve been having...

Hey I’ve been having pains around my body for the last couple of weeks, pains come on and off primary on my left hand and when it comes on I can’t use my hand without a lot of pain, my back also has the same pain and my foot at the moment, I also feel it on my sides next to my abbdomen/kidney area, it feels like something to do with my veins or circulation, do these symptoms match up?

Doctor's Assistant: Have you had any recent injuries? What seems to make the pain better or worse?

Just to stop using my hand

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

If I leave it for a couple of minutes it will go away

it feels like circulation issue

I can't think of anything in particular, but it could be from multiple things that are effecting my blood pressure
Doctor: Dr. Phil, MD, Medical Doctor replied 3 months ago

Generally this is a nerve related issue

Circulation issues would generally start in the tips of the extremities

pain all over like this is usually a nerve

At your age, I would consider something autoimmune

Like lupus, rheumatoid or fibromyalgia

I would see your GP for some blood work to start.

Get an ANA and sed rate and go from there.

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
