I've been in constant pain for about a year now, nothing happenend.. No one knows what caused it, I woke up one day with my hand swollen and bruised. I went to school (high school) hoping is would just go away suspecting it was a sprain or just sore from laying on it. I was in and out of the hospital (Inverness) and they finally casted me suspecting it was a brake but nothing showed on the xray. I only had the cast on for one week and when they took it off the bruises were gone but I had lost all movement in my hand. My right hand couldn't move for two months, I was in physio in march and slowly each month my fingers started to regain movement, I was back and forth to Antigonish, Sydney, Halifax, Inverness... My peditrition put me on Gabapentin. Only in august 2014 I was able to move all five fingers, I am still unable to move my hand. I have had 3 MRI's and only to find out I have more things wrong with me. I am in 9th grade and am learning to write again. I have had a hypersensitive area about an inch and a half on my wrist and if you touch it I feel a sharp stabbing pain in my hand, it feels like acid running through my veins meanwhile I also get feeling like somebody has poured gasoline down my arm and set a match to it, but my hand is ice cold. Sometimes I almost pass out due to this pain. I have daily struggles as simple as putting a jacket on. I try to talk to my friends and they're just scared away. Walking down the hallways being called a freak. I joined this site to meet people and learn about their pain. I know most people have it worse than me but I just need friends.
