In Pain

IMG-20131011-WA0024I generally have high tolerance for pain but last week, I couldn’t move my left thumb and felt a shooting pain as I try to move it!  Reading up (as I would for everything!), “mommy thumb” came up;  wikipedia says it’s called de Quervain syndrome.  Basically, it’s the swelling of the tendon on the thumb side of the wrist from overusing the same part.

It started soon after I gave birth to Little A.  At first I thought it would just go away on its own, but several months after, it’s just getting worse.  So off I go to find some medical help.  Hopefully, the treatment will work (as quick as possible)!
