No trauma, does not hurt otherwise. The pain happens all of a sudden and it feels like a sharp stabbing pain. It is not like a dull ache. Once the pain stops it is gone until it starts again. Tried rubbing it, moving my hand around and stretching out my fingers and that doesn't seem to help. I also tried keeping it above my heart to see if that helped it and it didn't. I'm taking 1 Aleve in the am and 1 at night. That seems to work for a few hours and then it starts again.
My hand is better. Stabbing pain at night stopped over the weekend. Now it is sore and a light green bruising over that area has appeared. I saw my Dr. yesterday and she suspects a damaged tendon. Not sure how I did that, but anything is possible at my age..;) Still taking Aleve and now wearing a brace for the next couple days in hopes it will speed the healing along. Thanks!
