Hello I am new here and I have a few problems that Dr's can't seem to pin point.
Let me first say that I have had deQuervain surgery in my left wrist already and
I tend to have tendonitis often but no Dr can fix the problems I having now. In Feb
I smashed my thumb on my right hand. I went to the ER and he released the blood
and also told me I had torn a ligament or tendon in my thumb. So I was casted for a
couple of weeks. I started noticing numbness when I would use my hand. It was in the thumb,
and most of my other fingers but not too much in my pinky finger. It also went into my wrist and
I had a stinging pain when I would turn my wrist on put my index finger and thumb together.
Well No one seems to know what is wrong. First they say I have CTS then it is my nerve
and it is either a pinched nerve or a damaged one. Man I am confused. When I use my hand
it does hurt some, kinda a boring pain but I do experience sharp pain sometime. Any thoughts
on this would be greatly appreciated. It is only getting worse and I do type on a computer some
but it isn't a job. I use my hands mostly in working with animals.( big strong dogs too) But I have
had jobs working on computers and as a cashier. As for the pain in my elbow. It is sharp and I
have less strengh in my arm. It comes and goes usually lasiting a few months at a time.
Thanks, Raven aka Deborah
