My index finger on my right hand has gotten more and more painful since we got home from vacation last weekend. Yes, I'm right handed and its my mouse hand. I had no pain in it whatsoever before leaving on vacation. I had minimal access to a computer while we were away. I'm wondering if that rest did more harm than good. It already feels like its been hurting forever and will never stop, like everything else. The whole finger, joints, spaces between, right up into my hand - is very stiff and very painful. My wrist doesn't hurt at all though so it isn't referring pain to or from elsewhere.
The doctor suggested heat and if that doesn't work a cortisone shot; I don't think so pal, no needles in my fingers thank you very much.
So I guess I'm off to soak my finger. Ouch.
Don't you just love FM? A new pain to look forward to now and then; how comforting!
