326 Possible Causes for Disorder of Digit, Limb Pain, Narrow Hands

  • Raynaud's Disease

    Abstract Raynaud's disease is a common vasospastic disorder affecting the digits of both hands. Women are most commonly affected.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] When you are cold or stressed, the arteries in your extremities (fingers, hands, feet, toes) narrow, or constrict.[intermountainhealthcare.org] This can feel like the pins-and-needles sensation of “waking up” a limb that’s fallen asleep. It can be uncomfortable, and occasionally painful.[childrenshospital.org]

  • Acrocyanosis

    digits on exposure to cold, that occurs in episodic attacks.[books.google.com] Considered a vasospastic disorder, it affects the arteries supplying blood to the skin of the hands and feet.[almawiclinic.com] Progression to digital or limb ulceration or pain does not typically occur with acrocyanosis. If so, reconsider diagnosis to include vasculitis syndromes.[unboundmedicine.com]

  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

    […] at night, signs of the disorder upon examination, and especially if the patient responds to a steroid shot.[chron.com] The carpal tunnel is a narrow, rigid passageway of ligament and bones at the base of the hand that houses the median nerve and the tendons that bend the fingers.[ninds.nih.gov] While affected adults present with contracture and pain, children present with limb length discrepancy and deformity.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Diffuse Scleroderma

    One of our missions is to increase recognition of this disorder.

  • Thromboangiitis Obliterans

    A 25-year-old woman with progressive Raynaud's phenomenon and digital necrosis is presented.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The blood vessels then narrow or get blocked by blood clots (thrombosis). Blood vessels of the hands and feet are mostly affected. Arteries are more affected than veins.[nlm.nih.gov] Chemical lumbar sympathectomy for lower limb rest pain associated with thromboangiitis obliterans.[karnatakaanaesthj.org]

  • Erythromelalgia

    Secondary EM is related to various disorders, viz., thrombocythemia, myeloproliferative disorders, arterial hypertension, vasculitis, and systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE[synapse.koreamed.org] Evidence suggests that it results from abnormalities in the normal narrowing and widening of certain blood vessels, leading to abnormalities in blood flow to the hands and[rarediseases.info.nih.gov] Severe bilateral distal limb pain and vasodilation persisted despite the use of many antihyperalgesics.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Raynaud Phenomenon

    Raynaud's (say "ray-NOHZ") phenomenon is a problem when the blood vessels in the hands and feet are extra sensitive and become more narrow than normal.[stanfordhealthcare.org] This can feel like the pins-and-needles sensation of “waking up” a limb that’s fallen asleep. It can be uncomfortable, and occasionally painful.[childrenshospital.org] BACKGROUND: Raynaud phenomenon (RP) is a vasospastic disorder of the digital arteries. Severe forms are found in patients with connective tissue diseases.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Camurati-Engelmann Syndrome

    , atrophic skin, hyperhidrosis of the hands and feet, delayed dentition, extensive caries, delayed puberty, and hypogonadism [ Gupta & Cheikh 2005, Yuldashev et al 2017 ].[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] CED was not considered because of the lack of limb pain at that time.[synapse.koreamed.org] Clinical molecular testing when available for genes included in Table 2 (Supplemental Digital Content 2, ) associated with the disorders under consideration in the differential[nature.com]

  • Lumbar Sympathectomy

  • Acrodermatitis Continua of Hallopeau

    Acrodermatitis Continua of Hallopeau is a rare, chronic, recurrent disorder classified as a form of pustular psoriasis, and most cases affect one or two digits.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Targeted narrow-band ultraviolet B phototherapy As monotherapy or in conjunction with systemic medications ( 4 ) Psoralen ultraviolet A With selective hand bath psoralen ([unboundmedicine.com] There was no history of joint pain, lower limb edema, or jaundice. The patient had no family history of psoriasis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
