I developed left thumb pain that is now in the thumb joint, the base of my thumb socket and in my wrist the pain is unbelievable.... i have had this for about 8 months. About 8 week ago I woke up to a sore right thumb, now the joint at the base of the thumb is so painful.... I can’t Grip or put any pressure on them at all. I am now limited to how much I can use my hands. I’m under a hand specialist and due another telephone appointment on Saturday but all I keep getting told is I’m so young to be having this, I’m 40! I do also have osteoarthritis in my neck and lower spine as well as other medical conditions including fibromyalgia, benign liver tumour, intercranial hypertension and blood cancer which I am currently on chemo for. Is there anyone that has any experience of arthritis in their thumbs please?
Thank you kelly x
