Is it just your thumb?
yes right thumb
Do you have normal color in your thumb?
its felt like this for about six days now
Okay, if you squeeze on the end of your thumb tightly for 5 seconds and release it, hoe long does it take for the color to come back?
not long at all
maybe 3 seconds
How many seconds?
Please count exactly
no more than three i dont think
Okay, this may be due to a compressed or irritated nerve
hmm ok what do I do about it?
You would need to have it examined, and likely need an EMG to determine where the nerve is being irritated
do I go to a general doctor or someone special?
You should go to a hand specialist
hmm ok any ideas about finding one? what is their title exactly?
Just google hand surgeon and put in your zip code
ok will do! do you think its something serious?
I don't think it is serious
Are you there?
im just nervous because I write a lot for my job and have to do it, and this makes me worried because it's never happened before
I understand, but there is little you can do until it is examined
ok I will call a place tomorrow thank you
