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!
I feel like my head is spinning in my shoulders. He knows I love him and uses that to make me behave how he wants. He says he needs to wait to file for legal separation due to our finances. He is okay sharing a home as long as he gets to go and do what he wants, when he wants and this includes calling and visiting the woman he kissed three weeks ago. I try every second of the day to be strong and...
So, my relationship is not officially over but it feels like it is overnight. Backstory, my boyfriend and I are very different. When we started dating a few months back I had my hesitations about him because he 32 and still uses drugs recreationally (cocaine, mollie, mushrooms, weed etc). I am very much against that and do not enjoy going out to the bars as much anymore.He chased me for a while...
