Is anyone aware of any research being done on trigger fingers in diabetics? I never realized there was increased incidence with diabetes and hypothyroidism. (So, I get the double whammy!)
I had my first trigger release done on the middle finger of my dominant hand in 2005. Immediately after surgery, I developed a trigger on the ring finger of the same hand. Frustrated at the surgeons response (Well, we can correct that for you, too!), I ignored it for years.
Then the triggering affected my little finger as well. So I went be to a new surgeon, had the two releases done (2017), and within 2 weeks after the surgery, my index finger developed the trigger.
Now it’s difficult to grasp anything in my dominant hand. Signing my signature is a ludicrous effort. I need to get it released, but fear that it will just move to my thumb.
This jumping inflammation is disheartening.
Has anyone found successful relief?
