My left thumb is in deep distress, has been for at least a week. I don’t think I’ve been abusing it but I haven’t necessarily babied it either. I have unexplained stiffness in my hands. Last fall it was worst in my right index finger which seems like an obvious target for a repetitive movement injury considering I do a lot of crafting and computer work. It was bad enough I went to the doctor, no help.
Now it’s my left thumb. I’m right-handed but I do a lot with my left hand. I hadn’t realized how much. Not only is it affecting my crafting but it’s affecting my ability to make a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, which is a far worse state of affairs. Take care of your hands.
