Carpal tunnel syndrome occurs when the median nerve gets compressed at the wrist. Symptoms can include pain, numbness, or tingling in the palm, wrist, thumb, or fingers. The thumb can become weak. Possible causes can include making repetitive wrist movements (like typing for a living), obesity, pregnancy, diabetes and rheumatoid arthritis. Please talk to your doctor about an evaluation by a hand surgeon. ...Read more
Yesterday, I couldn't bend my thumb and today, every time I move my wrist too much, I get sharp pains where my thumb bone meets my index finger bone.
Thumb pain: A couple of thoughts... It could be an overuse injury, a tendonitis, it could be a flare up of arthritis caused by a previous injury. In these situations, I usually try to first rest the hand - no trying to "test" it to see if it hurts, or do any lifting or repetitive motions. I take Ibuprofen and see how it goes over a day or two. If it's improving on it's own great, if not, I see my doc! ...Read more
