Hi everyone, does anyone know anything about trigger thumb and trigger finger? I have severe arthritis in my fingers and I started getting trigger thumb a few months a go. It is better than it was but I fear it will get worse again since thats how it goes. One night I was carefully opening a zip lock sandwich bag and my thumb got stuck in the bent position for about 5 min it wouldn't straighten out it was so painful I couldn't do anything but pace until it popped back out straight this has happened a lot over the last few months. If I go to the dr for it I wonder if they can do anything for it? Ive read that it helps to put a brace on it but theres a lot to pick from. Thanks for any info you might have!

@Scat Thanks alot!!! Get this, I stopped taking Zyrtec about 3 months ago I had been taking it everyday. Since I stopped taking it my arthritis symptoms gradually got worse and worse then the trigger thumb and few trigger fingers never had that before. So, about 4 nights a go I started back on the zyrtec once again just to see if it would make any difference at all, it made a huge difference. I've tried that before to see if I was right and if there really was something to the zyrtec helping because I thought maybe it was just my imagination or something but this is at least the 3rd time its happened where it got better after I started taking it again. I just never went that long not taking it before.
