does anyone have experience of trigger finger and what can be done to treat it. I had an injection about 6 months ago but the problem returned. I read somewhere that immobilizing the finger at night so it does not bend gives the tendon a rest and therefore helps recovery

How do you do this, does it help

    I had "trigger" thumbs and eventually had a the little op which took about 20 minutes for each thumb (performed at different times) and they are fine now. The injections did not work long for me either. I sympathise, it is most annoying and not too pleasant either, is it?

    Hi lotsofpain
    Sorry I cant really help, I do have the injections in my wrists and thumb, but like you say they do wear off..mine have lasted around 7 weeks at the min....like Elna say there is an op...I just hope that the resting will do the trick for you....take care x
