a few weeks ago my index finger suddenley snapped out of place and it looked at a really odd angle- as if it was hanging out of its socket!
It was also excruciatingly painful, i cant even explain it i was almost screaming.
After about 30 seconds it seemed to snap back into place. So i assumed i must have moved funny or something and accidentally dislocated it.
Anyway a couple of weeks later the same thing happened to the same finger. It looked like it was just hanging off my hand and i couldnt move it. And again it was really painful, and lasted about a minute.
My manager today was mentioning trigger fingers and it sounded a bit like that. But im only young!!
Does anyone know anything about trigger finger/thumb and how it can be caused? I use my computer a lot- could that be it?
My mum and my sister were both born with trigger thumbs, their thumbs were bent over and occassionally snapped back into "normal" position, which my mum claims was incredibly sore. It means that the tendon is locked and too tight for the thumb to move properly .. Both of them needed surgery under GA to solve it.
