Thumb Pain

Experiencing severe thumb pain....not stiff in the mornings. The pain radiates up in the forearm. I have 2 small children and releasing their seat belts is very painful. Any suggestions?



Hi,

Sorry to hear about your thumb pain. Your symptoms are quite general and so it's difficult to determine the cause of your pain. As for suggestions I would first read my page on thumb pain:

Some of the basics discussed on the page includes utilizing ice, bracing, and anti-inflammatory medication.

Hope the information helps. Good luck!
