Hi xxyy

First of all, go and see your GP. Ask him/her to have you tested (a genetic blood test) to confirm whether or not you have CMT. If you do, get a referral to the Neurology Department at your local hospital. Regardless of whether you do or do not have CMT, your GP should be your first port of call, and may be able to help with your hands.


DawnD gives good advice. My hands and arm were sooo painful last night. I hope you get a diagnosis soon, you might not be able to stop the pain but it helps to know what is causing it.
