problem with thumb watch

    • Thread Starter

    the thumb on my right hand has become sore, not the actual thumb but the fleshy part (see pic)


    i can bend my actual thumb but when i move it any other way or put pressure on my hand IE getting up off a chair etc it hurts, also it aches and feels heavy :confused:

    i havnt knocked it or sprained it so anyone got any ideas what it could be? im not overly concerned but its my writing hand which im prob gonna need soon to apply for jobs lol

    before people jump on me saying 'go to the docs' well i cant cause its the weekend so i thought i would ask on here as i know there are people training to be nurses so thought they might have some idea

    EDIT: it also hurts when i push things with my index finger IE say something like a remote controle button or a toilet flush or something

    Are you sure you haven't fallen recently onto that hand? Or pushed something really hard with it?

    It sounds a little like a fractured scaphoid, which is the tiny bone in your wrist on the thumb side. If you move your thumb out away from your hand, like you're spreading your fingers, there's an indentation just above the side of the wrist. Does it hurt when you press on that?
