Yes, of course I will see the doc.
But meanwhile, do any of you know anything about CTS? And if my symptoms
include intense intermittent pain across the back of my hand, and
my thumb and index fnger sometimes refusing to behave themselves,
might CTS explain it? If not, is anything else a likely culprit?
I get something similar with my toes not behaving too, but in the night
not the daytime like the hand. I know about the arthritis in my toes and
the sciatica pains and I don't think they are related.
Am I just getting old and starting to fall to bits, do you think?
My arthritis in the feet manifests in struggling to walk when I first
get out of bed. By the time I've hobbled to the toilet and bathroom,
back to the bedroom, then downstairs, it mainly wears off and walking
to work is less painful.
The pain in my thumb is apparently down to my tennis elbow. I get
more elbow and forearm pain, but when my thumb hurts, it really lets
me know about it. My osteopath tells me to extend my arm and bend the
hand down at the wrist to ease it. Sometimes it works, other times, I
just swear a lot.
Lack of movement in any joints makes me hurt. If I don't get up and
move from my desk regularly to walk to the printer, I seize up, which
isn't any good for kicking people!
