    Tight, shiny skin on hands

    What now? My hands look very strange. The skin on the back of my hands has gotten very tight and shines like I waxed 'em. This is painful as my hands tend to curl and it stretches the skin very tight. I have been having some new problems and pain with my neck and hands lately, any chance it is related? Most of my injury was to my cervical verts. (C4-T2)

    Definitely get it checked out. I am not exactly sure of what it is, but anytime something changes and/or pain is involved, you should get it checked out.

    Get a referral to see a rheumatologist.

    RE: Tight Shiny Skin

    It sounds like Scleroderma. You should see a rheumatologist.
