    ..What is a Viking hand pain? ... or shouldn't I ask?

    I was told in November last year that I had cancer
    In December I was told I had kidney failure
    In January I had a cardiac arrest
    In February I was told I had a bleed in my stomach
    Last week I was told my cholesterol is far too high!

    (and so far only one of these things is true!.. see my doc for update.. :D )

    Viking hand pain in a pain you get at the base of your ring fingers. It is suppose to be a sign you are descended from Vikings. If it's really bad you can't stretch your fingers out properly buy I think that it is less severe in women. It is generic. My mum and sister get it too ... and we all look Scandinavian!
