my work is officework. Tons of paperwork prepping(remove staples, organize)..it never ends. cause it’s like a hospital related company.
And also computer typing.
But this happened, months ago: I was going though a bunch of papers quickly and i grabbed one where i had to twist my hand quickly cause i wanted to turn it over. i felt a sharp quick pain but it didn’t last too long but i know that’s what caused my injury.
now months later, when i do the same kind of work OR when i type..my thumb hurts badly. Even if i dont do anything but usually is more when i work with my hands. and usually more when i do it quickly.
However, when i’m relaxed after work, and i don’t do that kind of work and try to bend and straighten my thumb…there’s no problem in doing it. I can bend and unbend. and there’s not much pain.
IN Sum going through papers/documents, and pulling stuff with that thumb and typing in the computer causes pain.
Is this tendon damage and what should i do?
It seems my thumb works, but moving it quickly even if it’s small movement, makes it hurt.
Should i go to orthopedic or hand doctor or what?
i’m male 31 with many other problems and i just hate i have more and more every year.
