Trigger finger and painful thumbs

Posted , 3 users are following.

Not new to this site, but newly diagnosed with arthritis. Had had

An injection on two separate occasions for trigger finger one on

The left hand and one on the right. Was told no more injections

And talked about degree of pain in hands, weighing up if surgery

Would be replicable yet. Explaining up to 12 months recovery.

Also said arthritis in thumbs and he could feel crunching. This

Ending up with operations on the thumbs. Open 6 month appointment to ring up if any symptoms get worse. Pain relief Ibrufen,

But unable to take this. As have loads of other medical issues on

Going and have to be extremely careful medicine wise.

Since my visit last week have noticed that my right wrist starts getting a pain shooting up the arm, is th I s connected?

Any advice on any of the above would be appreciated.

    Have you tried voltarol gel that is what I use

    I have had 2 finger joint surgeries and now I am pain free and have some movement, no brainer... If offered surgery take it, anything better than being in constant pain.
