No trama, and no symptoms on left hand.
Doctor: Edgar Rubio Villegas, Doctor replied 4 months ago

Dear *****ient, because of the symptoms you describe, this is a chronic inflammatory process of the hand muscles and tendons due to overuse.
Typically, these injuries become more evident over the years as they are accompanied by the muscular and physical deterioration that is generated over the years.
because of his work, the muscles are weakened because they are highly demanding, which generates wear and tear, inflammation, which compresses the nerves and arteries and generates pulsations or spasms.
In your case it is convenient to make an X-ray of the hand to rule out any joint wear due to overuse.
I also suggest starting a process of rehabilitation of muscle strengthening of the wrist and hand to reduce the symptoms.

I suggest the following medical treatment with analgesics such as Diclofenac 50 mg (1) a tablet every 8 hours for 5 days, plus a muscle relaxant such as Tizanidine 2 mg (1) a tablet at night for 10 days
