I have an injured hand which is painful during the winter which I have for years blamed on the cold. However I was watching a BBC program on early electricians and I begin to wonder if it's the dryness caused by central heating and static electricity causing the problem.

What I want is to work out some tests to work out if it's an electric or a cold problem and if it is electric how can I cure it?

I have been wearing thermal glove on my right hand which being woollen may have been increasing the problem. The anti-static gear used for handling electronic equipment may be helpful but can't really walk around with wires to earth me.

So ideas please. Both to test and if it is static to cure.

It is of course possible it's a mixture of cold and static. But I have now stopped stroking the cat!
