It seems I may have trigger finger on two of my fingers (right thumb and left middle finger). It is pretty annoying and sometimes a bit painful.
My doc shared with me a resource that described the condition (the bolding is mine):
When one of your fingers gets stuck in the bent position, it is called a trigger finger. Usually a trigger finger will then straighten out on its own. Trigger fingers seem to occur more in people who have diabetes or arthritis or who have injured their hands in the past. Trigger finger also occurs in musicians and people who grip tools repeatedly. While a trigger finger can be painful, it normally is not a serious problem.
I found a few other topics about this on TuDiabetes from about two years ago:
Wondering anyone currently living with trigger finger: how are you doing? how you treated it? thoughts on cortizone shots, etc. etc.
Thanks for sharing.
