All I can suggest is to try Active Release Therapy and see if it works. Check out my posts below for more information on this and search the web also. It is non invasive so it's a good first try. Good luck

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
