Hi, I have been having something wierd going on with two fingers of my right hand since Tuesday of this week. I'm 54, female, in good health. A little background, several years back I had an ultrasound for a stomache issue I was having, and during the procedure the tech said that it looks as if I have osteoarthritis in my right hip. Huh, I thought, I was in my late 40s at the time and pretty active, without any pain. Still no issues there and I'm now a runner, no pain, wouldn't even know I had it. My mom had some arthritis in her hands. So back to Tuesday - I woke up in the morning and the middle and ring finger of the right hand, which were curled (along with the other fingers) while I was sleeping wouldn't straighten up by themselves. I had to use the left hand to straighten them. I've now noticed some weakness, and a wierd, not painful, sensation almost like a band has been wrapped around the topmost joint of both fingers. Now thinking back, there were two episodes over the last couple of weeks where I dropped things from my right hand. Don't know if that's related or me being a clutz.
I googled a bit and self-diagnosed trigger finger. I mentioned it to the nurse at work and she said with trigger finger, the finger actually shots back into place. That's not happening. She suggested it might be arthritis.
I realize I should see a doctor, but want to have a little more time to see what happens first. Does anyone have any ideas, or online sources that I could look at?
Thanks in advance!
A little long, any advice is appreciated....So I decided last week I wanted to get into photography. I picked a camera and decided to save up for it. He convinced me to get the more expensive camera (thinking probably that I would lose interest since it was 1,000 dollars). When he saw that I was still adament on the camera, he re-tried to convince me to get the less expensive one.I said I'm not...
Hi all,It took many months and unexpected delays, but my court return date for filing against my ex for "enforcement of ligitant's rights" is today. I called yesterday to find out the status, and the law clerk told me he "forgot" to call me this week (he's a real winner, this guy). Since my ex didn't respond to anything from me or the court, I "win". Just wondering from those who have taken...
