Hi

See your doctor immediately.

This can be the beginning of complex regional pain syndrome, which can start with such symptoms.

An orthopedist should be familiar with this.

Another possibility is simply a reaction of slightly damaged nerves, which will get better with time.

OK, so that is an initial answer….

Please use reply to expert if you have further questions. When you are ready, please click a positive rating [hopefully excellent]. If you forgot something, come back. I am here daily.
