Lately my hands are in pain when not balled up.
And I often almost '' lock'' a muscle in which it doesn't cooperate in the movement, when has a similar pain to muscle cramps.
Plus I keep getting random muscle spasms or muscle tensing that hurt a f*** ton.
I'm trying to figure out to what extend this is the fibromyalgia.
And more importantly if I should press for further examination into it.
It's left me quite bed bound some days and unable to work other days.
Did you see the procedure being performed?
Yes I was. I chatted with the surgeon and his nurse while having it done. The freezing stung a bit but that was the worst of it.
We're you awake for the procedure?
Just one suture line for the trigger finger which is located on the upper location of my palm. The finger was sutured many years ago from an accident opening a mini box of cereal with a bread and butter knife.
The trigger finger procedure was done in 30 minutes. I think the freezing bothered me the most. It healed quickly.
Two suture lines; base of middle finger and in hand? What did they do on the procedure? Shunt?
It was a minor procedure about 6 years ago at the day clinic in our hospital, the surgeon is the same surgeon that removes cancer growths, carpal tunnel issues, etc. The surgeon made a small incision as you see on the palm of my hand below the finger and cut some tissue. I am not sure if it was a tendon that became tight. I was never bothered again with it. The surgeon said it was Trigger finger. Your Dr would know the exact name.
I find that my hands tire easily and get a bit stiff and sore if I've been painting or using a computer for an extended period of time.
What did they call the surgery you had?
I don't recall what surgery is done for this.
I have it in both hands. I got the most painful Injection I have ever had, twice! Oh my gosh. Had to sit still as he injected the nerve! He should have knocked me out. Then, had to do it again! That was 2016. Now, in 2022, I am getting twinges in the R. Hand.
There is a persistent ache. I think it is from so much Journaling, writing and typing.
