: Hi everyone,
: two weeks ago, I've cracked my thumb and ever since, it hurts when I try to hold something firmly with my left hand. It doesn't hurt when it's cold, humid, warm or anything...just when I try to hold something. What causes this? Did I it a nerve? What should I do to stop the pain? Thank you for any help given!!! Have a nice day!
Anything I say should not substitute for advice from your doctor. If you can move the thumb and hand well, you probably didnt break anything (although an X-Ray would be the way to find out for sure). You might want to see your doctor if it hasnt gotten any better yet. The doctor can more accuratly tell you whats going on.
