I have motor control problems with fingers on both hands with the exception of index and thumb with minor nerve tingling but no pain. I believe full feeling in the fingers. I am starting to have problems with index fingers. MRI showed no problems in neck. I have had ulnar and carpel surgeries on left side with no help to the problem. Three different hand doctors have said they have no idea what is wrong. I cannot find any info on this problem. I am 49 type 2 diabetic with no where else to look or what to call this problem. Is this a common or uncommon situation? And what do I call this. Thank you, John Ross

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
This seemed to be due to diabetic neuropathy. Surgery is not helpful in this case.Just have control of diabetes and start gabapentin to resolve the problem.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
