Because of issues with my hands, I’m taking a short hiatus from the computer, except for checking email once a day. I hope to be back soon!
Tendinitis in my thumbs (old, recurrence) and carpal tunnel (new) — posture has a lot to do with it — computer, knitting, sewing — and who knows what all else has affected it. Pinch grip is sometimes painful. Can’t put much weight on it (no push-ups, bike rides, careful using rotary fabric cutter).
Sometimes right pinky and ring finger get tingly / numb — my hand therapist says to watch that and if it’s persistent need to get it looked at as it could become permanent.
My hand therapist, Manoj Kumar, is great — my Rx is for left hand only (right started only after I started OT), so we’re doing ultrasound, deep massage, sometimes ice massage, and a variety of stretching, gliding, and strengthening exercises. I can do the massage and the exercises at home, on both hands.
I wear carpal tunnel braces at night to prevent either wrist from getting bent forward, which aggravates it.
