Hand
History -

Early 1970's - My thumb joint was adjusted by a 45 MPH basketball direct hit on my extended thumb. Most of my joints are inflexible, but not this one, not since then. Has not been an issue for over 40 years.

Late 1970's - Ganglion cyst on top of wrist caused by repeated exiting of my 1964 Triumph Spitfire. It disappeared on the operating table. The surgeon did nothing because it had vaporized during the 3 weeks since I had last seen him. No hint of recurrence in over 40 years. I guess the threat of being sliced and diced scared the h*ll out of it.

Notes

I stopped taking my mega dose Vitamin B pills from Costco, several months ago, because of cancer risk. I had been taking them for years.

Could this reduced Vitamin B12 intake have resulted in neurological issues in my hand? I will start taking the pills again, but with smaller and less frequent doses. Time will tell. After ONE dose, I noticed improvement, which may or may not be related
.

I have bolded those items above which SEEM related to my condition.

I have eliminated AIN syndrome, because I CAN form an O with the thumb and index finger, AND I can make the "OK" sign.

"Doctor, doctor, tell me the news,
I've got a bad case of ...
... bad finger/thumbitis." Ha.

I woke up one morning in Jan. 2018, and I was unable to hold a piece of paper between my thumb and index finger, on my left hand. So I created this page to look into the problem.

The sole purpose of this page is to encourage further research on your part. I hope that you have found this Wikipedia index page helpful.
Thank you very much for your time.
