Re: swollen / stiff right index finger
sorry you haven't gotten any replies on this but its kind of hit or miss here with certain issues. if no one really knows what this is or has any clue at all they usually wont post, ya know what i mean? have you seen a doc about this in these two months since you posted this just to have it better evaluated? there could just be so many possible reasons for this to even be there its best to seek out help from your doc on this one. espescially since there is not actual pain from this at all? no area of our bodies should simply 'swell' at all without some reason behind it. it could be an overuse type of situation or a tendon/muscle type issue, nerve problem or something very directly wrong with that particular finger too. this is just where the doc comes in and by looking at it and palpating it, having you bend it he would know more about what types of testing to do to just find that diagnosis. it usually takes tracking back a symptom to possible triggers and then testing and ruling things in or out to make a real true Dx of any real condition or problem we are having within our bodies somewhere.
i do hope you can find out just what could even be causing this in that finger. let me know what you find out, i am curious now too. i just really do think you need to see the doc for this one. FB
