Believe me when I say I hate having injuries and there isn’t anything exciting about having a bummed thumb on your dominant hand. For me It began with me doing one of my unusual habits of stretching my thumbs backwards. And after that is when pain began and to be honest I basically convinced myself it was a sprain because I saw the swelling. So I go out that weekend and get myself one of those braces out of boxes. Then I go to open something with the brace on of course and something cracks. And it wasn’t one of those pressure relieving cracks it was more of those horrible cracks that are clearly no good. So then the pain has been at a constant 10 since then. Nothing helps. Pain medicine? Tried that. Nope. Icing it? Tried that too and nope. Then when just when I think things can’t get any worse I get the tingling in the tip of my thumb in addition to extreme pain and some swelling. It seems to me that when I hurt myself I do an amazingly good job of it.
So on this website that’s like a blog for people with rare and common illnesses can post with their issues and questions. So I post how I have tingling in the tip of my thumb and I’m kinda freaked. Someone says ‘you need to get that checked out it might be nerve damage.’ So then I go from kinda freaked to FULL FREAK OUT MODE. I mean I look up nerve damage and who the hell wouldn’t have been in full freak out mode.
Now today is the day I am going to see the hand surgeon. I feel bad for being excited but like It’ll make me feel like I’m not crazy. And maybe he can help me better than a cheap thumb brace from CVS can.
With that being said here is the website I stumbled upon in my daily worthless time wasted searching cute dogs on the internet.
