What is wrong with my hand?

the base of my thumb hurts. I've had an x-ray and it is not a fracture. my hand is going cold and sometimes changes colors but i don't think it's raynaulds because it's only in the hurt hand. the nerve running down my thumb is very sensitive and reacts to slight touch. my wrist will pop down at the base of each middle three fingers if i push my hand up. sometimes the pain in my thumb is not there, sometimes it pulses up it starting from the wrist. occasionaly my had tingles. this has been going on for over a month with it braced, iced, not used, and an anti inflammatory cream on it. my doctor and a hand specialist diagnosed tendonitis, but it's not getting better. also, the vein that runs up the pointer finger and in between the pointer and the middle fingers sometimes has a little bubble. this is in my right hand, and i have not used it unless absolutely necessary from the first day over a month ago. please help. nobody can figure this out and i'm ready to amputate.

Get a third opinion from a vascular surgeon based on your symptoms.

It sounds a lot like tendinitis. I was diagnosed with almost the exact same thing 6 years ago, and it comes and goes, but it decreases in frequency. One thing I do is when I'm in my hot tub (public pool hot tubs are fine too) I put my hand under the water in front of a jet far enough away that I feel firm pressure from the jet but it doesn't cause pain and its like a massage. I do it as many times a week as I can. It really helps circulation too.
