Worsening of pain

Posted by joycelowe1 @joycelowe1, Jan 8, 2017

I have pain in my left hand, at the base of my left thumb. I was managing it with Blue Emu per Dr Phil. It worked fine until now. I know arthritis is not curable but does anyone have any advice about things to try? I’ve seen the omega XL commercial. Does anyone out there have any experience with these pills or have heard anything about them?

@joycelowe1, how long have you had arthritis? What does your doctor recommend?


Good Morning joycelowe1. Sorry to hear you are having this prob. It sounds like your “basal thumb arthritis” has gotten to the point you need more aggressive treatment. See an ortho doc, preferably one who specializes in hand treatment. He may want to splint it and or prescribe anti-inflammatory meds or give you an injection. If none of these work it may require surgery. Mine did, and it took care of the problem. Hope you get some relief soon.
