wrist and hand quit working for months

conniehurts - September 18

I woke up one morning to find my right hand dead! I had no control over the wrist and little movement in the fingers. It didn't hurt. After tests I was told it was from spinal stenosis but because of the amount of time it had been since it began and I sought treatment it may not work. This has happened before but never for this length of time For the first 17 weeks the wrist was totally useless but I kept all my joints moving even if I had to move it with my other hand. I have finally gotten back some of the use of my wrist and most of the fingers. My pinkie and ring fingers still wont straighten completely and the joints hurt all the time. The entire hand swells periodically and always feels still and is quite painful. Does this sound like it could be part of the whole fibro gamut of things that can go wrong? I am still refusing neck surgery. I did check with the spinal institute that advertises on tv and with m insurance which at this point in time is paying 100% of reasonable and customary fees I have to pay $5000 UP FRONT. Not gonna happen. Local health care is so bad that I would be better off going to a vet than a dr for surgery! Thoughts anyone?
