My left hand MVP jointbis paining from the past few weeks, and has swollen up yesterday

Doctor's Assistant: Any recent injuries? How long have you been dealing with the swelling?

Now the pain has aggravated

No injuries that I can recollect. I haven't done anything to the swelling. It started only a couple of days back

Could you tell me what the MVP abbreviation stands for? I'm sure I can help you out with this if I know the exact location of the swelling and pain.

I meant the MCP joint of my thumb
Health Professional: Dr. Mo, Doctor (MD) replied 1 year ago

Got it! Thank you. The MCP can develop swelling from a few causes. The most common is irritation of the joint from mild arthritis. I'm only 39 and I have a little arthritis in there myself. Other causes can be gout which causes inflammation and redness and sensitivity to the touch. Is it painful to move your hand?

It was mildly paining for a couple of weeks, but from past two days the swelling has started, and it pains if I move or bend my thumb
Health Professional: Dr. Mo, Doctor (MD) replied 1 year ago

It sounds a bit more arthritic. Something may have set off the joint. There are some great online exercises and even videos on youtube which you can follow which help you exercises and do range of motion movement with the MCP and get it to go back to normal. I don't think it's gout. Icing would be okay.

Will it normally be back to normal though? I just hope it doesn't remain like this forever!
Health Professional: Dr. Mo, Doctor (MD) replied 1 year ago

It almost never becomes permanent. That joint has a lot of surface area. Though it can ache for a few days at a time, usually with regular exercises or at least some stretching that will be alleviated and hopefully prevent it from ever coming back.

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
