Thumbs

For the last few days BOTH of my thumbs have been dislocating on the middle joint. What in the heck?!? Anyone else ever have this?

Not dislocating. Mines swelling and painful. 🙏🌼

Luvsdragracing, I think it's Arthritis. All my fingers are getting stiff in the mornings or chilled weather.

I know I have OA but this dislocation stuff is new and really annoying. I have an appointment with the rheumatologist Thursday.

Praying it won't be anything bad! (((Hugs)))! 🙏🌼

Luvsdragracing, I had that happen by the lower joint closest to the wrist. My right one dislocated so badly that it tore the tendons right off the bone and they had to rebuild the joint with wires, screws and tendon harvested from the same forearm. I had the problem from the joint being so degenerated that it just went pop. Do you have DDD? Perhaps that is the reason for the dislocations. It happens to my right shoulder now but since I've had 28 surgeries in the last 22 years, I really don't want to go through another if I can avoid it. I hope you can find out what's going on. They do sell thumb braces at the surgical supply stores and online. They are reasonably priced. Perhaps that would help. Sending my best wishes, {{{Hugs}}} and prayers your way.🌻🙏🏻
