I 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)!
