Sprain or strain....

For the past week the pain in my left hand.(the better one)..has brought me to tears..& believe me I have a high pain tolerance level...every time I move my thumb it feels like hot needle inserted..takes my breath away for min..I've been to doctors who is phoning me today..to see if naproxen is working. As I said before do have morphine but want alternative...I have to say no..as still get 2hrs sleep a night before agonising pain..anyone got suggestions?? As cutting off seems most thought action at min..😣😞😞
