i have recently been diagnosed with ME, chronic pain syndrome and chronic migraine syndrome. I have terrible trouble with my hands, it started as writers cramp but now my hands are painful and stiff all the time, particularly in the mornings. I have trouble with all fine motor skills now. My neurologist has been quite dismissive even though this is probably my most distressing symptom and has the biggest issue in my ability to return to work or take early retirement through ill health. I cannot write at all now. When I discussed it with consultant he told me to blow into a paper bag!!! This is not an anxiety problem! I dont know if it is a symptom of ME or whether I should seek a second opinion. I have read up about dystonia but although the spasms are indicitative of that I dont think it is as the pain is there all the time. Can anyone help?
