I woke up Thursday morning and my thumb hurt really badly, whats wrong with it?
I have jra(juvinile rheumatoid arthritis)in my right wrist and I've had it for three years now, I'm 14The other morning I woke up and my thumb all the way down to the side of my wrist hurt really badly and I couldn't turn off the sink or hold a toothbrush, my dad said I proberly slept wrong on it so he gav me some aspirin( I think) and said it would get better in a few hours, it's been 4 days and still hurts what should I do?
Answers
Have your parents call your rheumatologist tomorrow and see what they say. If it's the same hand/wrist as you have the arthritis my guess is that it's related so the doc may want to take a look.For now maybe some advil and warm compresses would help a little?
