Inflammation: It sounds like inflammation of the tendon...did you injure it in some way? Have it seen by your doctor if it persists. In the meantime there are some simple things that may help. Homeopathic Arnica, Rhus tox and Bryonia (all three at same time) can help with the pain. Stopping gluten can also help...over time..that is not a quick fix.

Trigger Finger: Most likey reason is that you have a trigger finger (or two). An experienced hand surgeon can help. Sometimes antiinflammatories can help (oral or injectable), and if not, a relatively simple surgical procedure can correct it. The first step however, is to see a hand surgeon and get the correct diagnosis. ...Read more

Down on hands and knees installing flooring. Left hand/ wrist are swollen, pinky finger and palm numb, hand weak, can't open hand completely.

Down on hands and knees installing flooring. Left hand/ wrist are swollen, pinky finger and palm numb, hand weak, can't open hand completely.

Compression of nerve: which will hopefully be temporary. The usual position for a person installing flooring is to support your weight on your extended wrists. This compresses/stretches the nerves as they travel in your wrist to your hand. What you describe is serious, though. But if you stop injuring it, it should improve in a few hours...up to a day or so. Splint it. If it persists longer than 12-24 hours, go to ER ...Read more
