I have Ehlers Danlos. I do have an issue with dislocations, but not in my fingers. I am able to do "magic tricks" with my fingers, though. I am only 41. Intermittently, my fingers, one finger at a time, will ache horribly deep inside the joint for hour
Finger Pain: One of the problems with hyper mobile joints is they are not made to move that way. Therefore, they wear out. They get arthritis. The joint capsules wear and the fluid that lubricates the joint leaves the joint. The best thing you can do is stop doing "magic tricks", use some NSAID's. Talk to your doctor about what else to do. ...Read more

Hey Hey Hey---TMJ---: Boy, that hurts. How did you manage to do that? You probably tore some small tendon and/or muscle fibers, which explains the soreness. Common sense should now prevail: soft foods, great care when you yawn, brush your teeth, etc. Use Motrin for the pain and see how it goes over the next 2 weeks. If not significantly better see an oral surgeon who specializes in the temperomandibular joint (TMJ). ...Read more

Is my finger dislocated? Lately I have been having pain in my thumb and it will pop when I bend it I can not remember hitting it on anything. At times my finger will not pop when I bend it but the pain is still there help!
Popping, clicking and locking is usually from a trigger finger or in this case a trigger thumb.
The tendon that moves the thumb is held inlace by pulleys or slings of thick tissue that hold the thumb down against the bone so that when you bend your thumb the tendon does not "bowstring" out away for the thumb surface. Think of belt lops on pants or the eyelets on a fishing pole that guide the fishing line and keep it in place.
The tendon can get inflamed form wear and tear, injury, or just because it can.
The pulley can get a little less flexible and take on stiffer characteristics
when these factors get to a certain point the tendon may then not glide as well as it ionce did and you get triggering
the range of symptoms can be pain, pain with a little click, no pain with a lot of click, even a t times locked down and not moving at all
early morning or may be worse. A lot of times once you get going int he am the symptoms go away
a hand surgeon will generally try to inject a trigger finger with corticosteroid to reduce the swelling.
Splinting may not work in that the finger may get stiffer but for thumbs in those who do a lot of hand intensive daytime activity, a soft neoprene guard or splint that is flexible may help get through the day
if conservative treatment does not work a surgical release may be offered.
The assh has a good brochure on this problem (see below). ...Read more

I dislocated my finger a few days back, and had it popped back in. Are there any exercises I should do to avoid loss of motion in the finger?
Finger Dislocation: John, you ought to get an X-ray just to make sure you didn't break a small piece of bone off which will make the healing longer and potentially decrease your range of motion. You also need it examined to asses the ligaments which often can be torn in this type of injury which also can affect your motion. At that point you are ready to discuss exercises. ...Read more

I dislocated my pinky finger and popped it back into place last week, how long will it usually take to heal?
Depends: It depends on the amount and nature of injury you had.

If there's a fracture, the finger must be buddy taped for a number of weeks (depending on the fracture) and then as above. ...Read more
