Arthritis in hands
Hi all. I have Arthritis at the base of my thumbs. In June last year I had cortisone a injection in my right hand and in August in my left hand. It helped unbelievably. But over Christmas they were both a bit sore. I put it down to being so busy. But beginning of January they both started becoming extremely painful. Especially the left one. I have a lump at the base of my thumb now. I am having to take pain meds 3 times a day and at night they are even worse.
Any ideas why this has come on so suddenly? Or what I can do to alleviate the pain. I am waiting to speak to Muscosketal clinic next month about more injections.
