I woke up during the night, with a very painful hand, locked into a ‘claw‘ position, managed to straighten it out, and middle clicked as I did it…being awake I tried opening and closing my hand a few times, result, clunk click every trip.
ETA, it is only my middle finger that was locked, the rest were just sore, I could straighten the rest quite easily.
Eventually got back to sleep, then woke up this morning with it locked again, once I got it straight it has behaved all day, just aches like an aching thing.
I see a few older threads about cortisone injections, and surgery, but nothing, in a quick search, about what to do on day one! Dr Google and I agree that it’s trigger finger, so ignore it and see what happens, go see Dr sooner rather than later, splint, or not to splint….any advice hive mind.
Also ETA, it was that painful last night, kind of scared about tonight!
