Hello thank you very much
Could you elaborate on your question
Please give me details on the situation at hand
The thing is that i have a prominent tendency to crack my fingers joints, lately my left thumb is hurting in the joint the joins the hand, im afraid that I could be developing arthritis, i hope not, it hurts like when you have a joint flexed up for too much time, this also started when i started riding a motorcycle, so i dont know if that is playing a role i suppose yes as it started as soon as i started riding, my question is if in any case arthritis could be reversed.
You are too young so as to develop arthritic changes
oh, good, so it is a myth that if you crack your fingers you get arthritis?
It is not necessary that cracking fingers is arthritis
YOu should still get an X ray if this is bothering you
The pain you have can be caused due to strain
ok thank you very much doc! i will get it checked asap, thanks!
Does it hurt bad ?
not bad to bother me out of the blur, just when i bend my thumb down a little too much
That is okay
It can be caused due to strain and exertion
When you bend the muscle stretches too
It does not sound serious
the pain actually goes away sometime when my thumb cracks
It can be caused due to stiffness
ok, so nothing serious then? i should be worried?
You should avoid cracking your fingers often
No it is not serious but if the pain persists then just get an X ray
yeah i will try. (my small ocd)
You are fine
Do not worry
ok thank you very much doc!
You are welcome
Take care and god bless
you have been great! thanks!
I wish you all the best
thank you doc, likewise!
