painful thumb

this is a long shot but i was wandering if there was anyone out there who could help me. for about the last four months i have had sharp pain in the tissue of the tip of my thumb. this only occurs when i do a zip up or put any pressure on it but when i do get it it is very painfull. i feel silly going to the doc.

Re: painful thumb

Just a guess but you may have irritated your thumb tip doing whatever and as a result developed a small neuroma. These things are a nuisance but not dangerous. You can either avoid all contact with that area (hard to do I know). It may settle down over several months - or take it to a doc who might suggest injecting it. Frankly, I'd get it looked at - no harm in that...
