What would cause my thumb to swell (overnight), abit numb & highly painful to move. The end joint moves like it is out of place..jerking & often freezing in place (where I have2manually push it open or pull it back down). I have #1-Spinal Stenosis #2-MS #3-Fibromyalgia #4-Reynauds D. #5-Osteoporosis #6-Traumatic Pancreatitis #6-Stress Fractures #7-Sciatica #8-Degenerative Disk Disease. Next wk my Pain Specialist wats to do a series of diagnostic facet injections (#6) & then possibly burn the nerves. I dont understand though 'What has happened to my thumb'?
You could have a snake bite, but you would probably know that. You could have a sprain, a dislocation, or a broken bone. It probably needs an X-ray to be sure. Ice may help with the pain and swelling.
Other people asked questions on various topics, and are still waiting for answer. Would be great if you can take a sec and answer them
