What part of the thumb has the problem, and is there any swelling? Can you better describe the sore all over/tired problem?
Hi Dr Chip, My right thumb is sore when I bend it, it feels like it's "clicking", forl ack of a better term. When I try to screw open o bottle top, Oh my goodness, that's when it really hurts!
As for the tired feeling I'll give you an example: last Saturday as I was walking from the grocery store and carrying a few bags of groceries, my legs felt weak of all of a sudden. It took everything I had for me to keep on walking. It's not the first time that I've had that happen to me.
No I haven't been to a doctor. I've tried taking OTC pills. I started with D3-2000 IU just this week. I also brought EXCEDRIN, Extra Strenghth. I've taken the Excedrins twice, and I stll have pain.
I was wondering if GERITOL would work for my 'tired feeling'? Or maybe Calcium Pills for my aching bones? I tend to feel especially stiff & sore when I wake up in the morni g.
I appreciate your honesty, but since you are a doctor, and I've given you some information of what's going on with me, I would appreciate you giving me your thoughts and any suggestions of what to do or what I should take until I do see a doctor.
Thank You very much for your thoughts. I really appreciate your thoughts about my thumb. I feel a lot better. So, should I even bother with buying anything from the drug store; i.e., Bengay or something of that nature?
About my fatigue, I know that it could be anything, so I WILL have to go to my physician and get blood work done. Again, Thank You so much for your time & expertise.
