Trigger Thumb (stenosing tenosynovitis)

If it's not one thing, it's another. Frozen shoulders (note the plural), messed up elbow and now Trigger Thumb

It's been getting worse over the last few months - holding a pen to sign a credit card slip? Ouch. In the morning, it's a symphony of snap, crackle, pop when I try to stretch out my hand.

Finally saw my doctor yesterday, was diagnosed - so now have a referral to the hand doctor. *sigh*

My doctor is still pleased with me and my life style changes.
