People may have seen from my previous posts that I've had issues with my hands. I've been curious as to whether the weakness I had was due to Carpal Tunnel, RA or the ongoing back issues I've been having.
One thing I can't deny now is that I definitely have Dupuytren's, and have been diagnosed as so...quite a galling prospect for a 33 year old.
My affliction has developed over the past year, no doubt accelerated a result of botched-up trigger finger surgery I had a decade ago (and probably some unnecessary stretching on my part). At the moment I have no contracture - only the occurrence of some rather large nodules which is stretching the skin quite badly. Usually I make a laugh of it and draw a couple of faces on (see 'Larry and Barry' in the new Mad Max!) But after seeing how white it was after an hour's run this morning in the cold, I've decided I need to start treating the damn thing. Really interested to gain some advice here...I've read on other website's that massaging the nodules with lanolin oil is a good idea?
Would really appreciate some advice on this if anyone has any info they can share.
