Hi all - wonder if you can advise me. Last night at big choir practice I go to the woman sitting next to me (don't know her) suddenly got her hand tugged her pinky right back and then did same with other fingers - all loudly snapping. Then she tugged her forefinger really hard so it seemed to come out of the joint and then pushed it back into the joint with equal force - all made very loud clicks. I had to move away and sit behind her for the second half it was unbearable!
My fingers won't even bend back let alone be snapped about violently in this way. Might there be a medical explanation for this behaviour does anyone know? It really made me feel quite sick when I'm trying to protect and cherish my own poor fingers - I wanted to tell her to stop or she'd end up ruining her hands but couldn't course. If anyone knows of an arthritic condition that means this is a good idea/ necessary please do tell me. Meanwhile I will avoid sitting next to her ever again! Tilda
