Topic - De Quervain's tendinitis....thumb pain

George Fisher - on 15 May 2013
I'm pretty sure I've got this problem with my left thumb. The finest physician in the land (YouTube) suggests so... It's perticulatly bad pushing up off things with my hand in a press up position. It collapsed under me this morning.

It's associated with gripping things with an open hand and as I've just laid about 1000 bricks in a patio that would make sense.

As a professional hitch hiker, this is going to be a problem, ( actually I'm a cabinet maker so it is a problem). Has anybody got it, had it, treated it??

Will a wrist support and Ibuprofen do the trick? Something specific? I might see a real doctor if it persists but I think it could just be over-use in this instance. Any thoughts??
