What Does A Broken Thumb Feel Like
Painful triggering: Trigger thumb is a stenosing (constricting) tenosynovitis resulting in inflammation and pain, often worsened by movement. When the symptoms are severe, triggering or catching at the thumb may be noted. Non-operative modalities include anti-inflammatory medication, temporary splinting, and corticosteroid injection. Open trigger thumb release may be warranted for recalcitrant cases. ...Read more
I have light brown lines on both of my thumbs and my nails are kinda bumpy like horizontal ridges?
Nails as a mirror: Nail and skin changes could be reflective of systemic or local diseases. When did you notice these changes? Are you pushing your cuticles down causing nail bed trauma? Do you have any other symptoms and/or chronic diseases? Is your diet balanced - are you taking enough minerals and vitamins? ...Read more
My thumbs move like they are frost bitten. Really slow. Just the movement not the cold feeling. What is this?
Both Thumbs Stiff: There are 765 known causes of bilateral thumb stiffness, but the top five are bilateral small joint arthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, symmetrical arthritis, osteoarthritis, and lupus, without further details, it is very hard to say, but you should definitely want to rule out lupus or another related connective tissue disorder. Does your work/avocation involve repetitive hand movements? Check w/ md. ...Read more
My wrist has been hurting all week and it feels like it needs popped, but it hurts to even try. Today it hurts worse and can barely move my thumb?
Need to examine: It is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion without examining you and your symptoms warrant evaluation by a physician. If Ibuprofen is not relieving the symptoms, it is particularly important for you to see your physician for an examination and may be some tests. ...Read more
I hurt my thumb on July 12 and almost a month later it is still hurting, it is on both sides, ucl and rcl,when I pull it I feel like it pops.Thoughts?
Depends: Thst depends on how bad the break is. If a bone is just chipped in a small area or even have an avulsed or torn tendon, the bone may look normal but jist not move right, while a large break may be comminuted and very misshapen. If there is a question, if you can't grip or squeeze things then you should get an x-ray. ...Read more
My thumb was pulled all the way back and popped. Feels like it's out of place and hurts when i hit it accidentally.
Have it looked At!: I would either call my doctor or go to er or urgent care center to have it looked at to be sure but I use my hands for a living. Hand injuries are not something to "wait & see" about in general. It could be a pulled tendon or ligament and may heal on it's own but let someone that knows make that call! ...Read more
Can a thumb size girth like 3" (which is much below than average size of 4.5-5") is enough for women ? I have heard girth matters a lot?
Size: can matter, although, too large can be a problem. Technique and other things such as foreplay can help stimulate and excite women, don't give up! Best of luck. ...Read more

Terrible bad!!!!!!!!: One reliable sympton of a broken bone is horrible pain. The broken bone just does not want to be moved at all. A bad strain could also give just as much pain, so that is why your physician often needs an x-ray to help sort things out. Some fractures such as an impacted fracture of the upper arm or a skull fracture may not be that painful, so we do not just go by pain. Go for an exam by your md. ...Read more
Gout vs Infection:
Classic gouty symptoms or infection. Usually a blood test and possibly a joint aspiration can prove which most of the time. You can get a cortisone shot in the joint when they do the aspiration. I find a shot (in arm or buttocks) of the NSAID Totadol gives 80% - 90% relief in 30 minutes for gout but not infection.
Either can ruin the cartilage, infection in 2 days, gout in a few months. Get checkd ...Read more
Both wrist lock like trigger thumb. They both get stuck. What could this be? Look at utube locked wrist &thats my wrist
Clicking and locking: In a wrist could be a ligament injury or tear, a looseness in the wrist causing a "clunk" when the wrist bones ar out of position and suddenly "catch up" and snap into place, a snapping tendon that is out of place and other things ( btw.. I looked up wrist lock on youtube and all i saw was defensive moves). ...Read more

My left thumb shakes after i make like a thumbs up like win it wants to go to an relax it shakes funny should I be worried? I'm left handed
Congested nose huh: Some meds for nasal decongestion will make you hyper and shake. If you are getting too much thyroid meds, may also be the reason. Blood test will determine if that is the cause. Your headache maybe related to sinuses or blood pressure. Sure would be nice to know that your blood pressure isn't high! seek evaluation. ...Read more
I have diarrhea and in the toilet saw a white, somewhat translucent bulb, about the size of the tip of a thumb. Looked like maybe a cocoon. Help?
Hello, the tip of my thumb is funny feeling like an asleep feeling but I haven't been laying on it or pushing on it. Is it something to worry about?
I've been experiencing a spasm in my left thumb, and I keep feeling a jerk like movement in the thumb. it's not painful, but is definitely annoying as?
Muscle spasm: or tic or fasciculation. Suggests some nerve might have gotten pinched or a muscle is not happy. Very unlikely to be serious unless something is also happening in your hand or arm or if it comes on at the same time as head/neck pain on the same side. If so, see a clinician. ...Read more
