nerve deadening

I have chronic pain in my hands from a repetitive strain injury that would never get better, just worse. I am able to move my hands and fingers normally but everything hurts, even using a fork, or flipping a page of the magazine. This is being written with speech recognition software.

What about deadening the nerves that go into my hand? Is that possible? I know it would be dangerous because I could not feel pain if my fingers were being burned,... But I live like Mr. Rogers and if it is possible, it seems like the danger would be far outweighed by the benefits of not being in constant pain.
