Just 'cause I'm curious.........Fingers
« on: October 25, 2005, 12:11:19 AM »
Does anyone else have a problem with their fingers, thumb and knuckles? Mine seem to dislocate at the drop of a hat or hurt alot and then I notice them sticking out at a funny angle!? and do they ache.

As I said, I'm just curious.....wrists come up quite often.....but theres more to the hand.......

Bridge

Yep, I dislocate my little finger the most and it comes out really easily, I've started not even going to the docs for it as I know how to strap it together with the finger next to it.  I find that my joint aches a lot at the base - probably got OA in it by now and yes it does stick out at a funny angle, I can't hold it together with the other finger (does that make sense  ???), its like I do the "spock" thing but with my little finger!

Perhaps you are both hypermobile. People with knee problems often have this sort of doublejointedness which may be fine if you are a circus artiste. Judey

Judey, I am hypermoile, its not a dx for my knees it justs adds to the problem. I was just thinking about other aspects of life it affects. Bridge

Judey,

I am also hypermobile and like Bridge its not the main problem with my knees but it sure doesn't help.
