I am so sorry you have new pain :cry: I know that we have so much old pain to deal with that new pain is not welcomed! I bet you are fed up with doctors and there whole run around bit they give you. It is exhausting just thinking about it :? I am with Saysusie, I will also go along and take pictures so we can post them on here and everyone can feel better just by looking at them I hate that all I can say is hang in there, I just wish there was more I could do to help. I am sending you gentle hugs and thoughts of a pain free night.
You mentioned that you type for a living. Have you looked into Carpal Tunnel Syndrome? My mom is an accountant and has used the ten key and has typed all her life at work. This syndrome is actually caused by excessive typing. It is just an idea. I am not sure how long you have been typing and if it is even a possibility. I will attach an website for you to look at and maybe it can help you either rule it out or even give you something to bring to the doctors attention.
Keep us updated
As I grow to understand life less and less,
I learn to love it more and more.
