Sore thumb on arm when flexing

Thumb Other fingers
Number of phalanges 2 - proximal and distal. Number of phalanges 3 - proximal, middle, distal.
The wrist joint has a saddle shape. Leads and leads the finger along with the metacarpal bone. Wrist joint joints are inactive, form a solid foundation.
The muscle group consists of 4 short muscles - flexion, retracting, leading, opposing the thumb. The little finger has 3 muscle groups. Middle fingers of 4 worm-like muscles for bending of phalanges, as well as palmar and rear interosseous muscles.

HURT FINGERS OF HANDS IN FOLD: Types of joint diseases in the fingers and their symptoms |Active Turtle

Pain in the fingers, including flexion, can occur as a result of the stenosing ligament of the transverse ligament of the wrist.

However, not only individuals of age are concerned about the sensations in their hands. Unfortunately, there are a number of diseases in which discomfort in the phalanges of the fingers can manifest at any, and even young age.

The appearance of discomfort when bending fingers should not be ignored. And then, at first glance, such an insignificant problem as the inability to bend a finger, can lead to disability.

Let's consider in more detail each group of ailments at which strong discomfort in hands is felt. Remember that only a doctor can diagnose an illness. He must also deal with treatment.

Especially strongly affects this arthritis of the phalanx of the fingers. A distinctive feature of arthrosis is not affecting the internal organs and other joints. Basically - the thumb. The intensity of sensation is tearing, burning nature.

The patient is very painfully given any movement with his fingers, especially the discomfort of flexing. A pathology can span one joint or a set. And if you feel a crunch and pain in the joints, then you should immediately go to the doctor. You know when I started having problems with joints, then Don helped me a lot.

Causes of pain of this nature are usually diseases or damage to the joints and periarticular tissues. On the nature of pathology can be judged by the degree of damage - for example, in chronic processes, joints can not only ache, but also deform.

Osteoarthrosis or polyosteoarthrosis is a non-inflammatory deforming process characterized by thickening of the finger joints and restriction of their mobility. Stenosing ligamentitis is an inflammatory disease of the ring-shaped ligaments of the joints of the fingers.

Externally it may resemble rheumatoid arthritis, but with arthrosis there is no damage to other groups of joints and internal organs. This disease is associated with a violation of the exchange of purines - the products of protein metabolism, which leads to the deposition of uric acid salts( urates) inside the joints.

Pain with gout can be very intense, paroxysmal and have a burning, tearing character. Movement in the thumb( as a rule it is he who is affected) during a painful attack is extremely difficult or impossible.

Clinically, ligamentitis occurs typically: with pain during flexion and extension, and sometimes - with wedging of the finger in a bent state, when its extension is possible only with effort.

Treatment of pain in the joints of the fingers

Psoriatic arthritis of the fingers is a form of psoriasis. Along with the characteristic skin lesion, 10-15% of patients are involved in the process of joints, mainly - distal( nail) phalanges of fingers and feet.

May occur as a pathology of a single joint( monoarthritis) or multiple( polyarthritis).

Although, as the main pathological process is eliminated, the pains will pass. Often the pain is accompanied by swelling and redness of the skin around the joint.

To learn all the possible options, why the joints of the fingers are sore, read this article that will answer all your questions.

For the second year the big finger on the right hand

A special distinctive feature is that the fingers swelling become a form( form) of "sausage".Systemic symptoms in the development of this disease may be absent altogether. Determine whether the patient has a specific disease causing pain in the joints of the fingers, as well as appoint the right treatment will be only a trauma doctor or a rheumatologist.

The aim of the treatment of this disease is to reduce pain in the joints, improve the mobility of the fingers and achieve a long-term remission of the disease.

Diseases of the joints of the hands

Medical measures include ensuring the complete rest of the joints of the fingers and the introduction of antibiotics into their cavity. But in most cases, the disease can be diagnosed only when the damage to the joints has become irreversible.

Treatment of this disease is medicated. Find out what can be associated with pain under the knee during flexion and what actions to apply for recovery. In what there can be a reason of a pain in a waist on the right behind? Find out everything about back pain from an article dedicated to this ailment.

Periodically, during work, relax the hands and hold a massage. In this case, there are burning pains, or numbness, which affect all the fingers of the hand, except the little finger, more pronounced on the palmar surface of the fingers, without concentrating in any joints.

The development of this disease of the joints of the fingers is characterized by a rapid onset of pain, followed by a rush of heat to the affected area, as well as its swelling and redness. Oftentimes, osteoarthritis of the hands proceeds like rizartroz, when the joints of the thumbs are insensibly affected.

Pain in the fingers of the hands. Causes of pain in the fingers

Article of Dr. Evdokimenko © for the book "Pain and numbness in the hands", published in 2004.Edited in 2011.All rights reserved.

Most often pain in the fingers of the hand cause:

  • polyosteoarthrosis of the fingers;
  • tenosynovit de Cerven;
  • rizartrose.

In addition, pain in the fingers( along with numbness) causes carpal tunnel syndrome and Reynaud syndrome .In total carpal tunnel syndrome and Raynaud's syndrome give about 30-35% of cases of pain in the fingers.

Probably, having read all the above extensive list, you now with horror think about what to understand such quantity of illnesses and to understand, which of them are caused pains in your fingers, it will be very difficult. But actually it is not. It will not be difficult to understand.

For example, two diseases immediately stand out from the general list - carpal tunnel syndrome and Raynaud's syndrome, they always flow with the numbness of the hands of . Therefore, if the pain in your fingers is combined with your numbness, read the article on carpal tunnel syndrome and Raynaud's syndrome.

If you have pain in your fingers, but there is no obvious numbness in your hands, you can safely turn off carpal tunnel syndrome and Raynaud's syndrome from the list under consideration. The remaining diseases of the fingers are so characteristic that it is not difficult to distinguish one disease from another. And below I will tell you about these characteristic symptoms. You can only carefully read and compare your feelings with my descriptions. So:

Polyostoarthrosis of the fingers, "knobby fingers"

Polyostoarthrosis of the fingers gives about 40% of all cases of pain in the fingers. People who are not younger than 40-45 years old are sick( people younger than 40 years are ill with this disease in extremely rare cases), but especially people with polyostoarthrosis of the fingers are sick aged 50-55 years and older. Women are sick much more often than men.

For the polyostoarthrosis of the fingers is characteristic the emergence of special nodules( the so-called nodules Geberden ) on the back or side surfaces of those joints that are closer to the nails. Geberden's nodules most often develop symmetrically, that is, on the right and left hands simultaneously and in the same places. At the same time they can be formed on any fingers of the hands, from large to small fingers.

During the formation of Geberden's nodules in joints, burning and pain may occur under them;sometimes these joints swell and blush. But in a third of patients the formation of Heberden's nodules is asymptomatic, without pain and burning.

In addition to Heberden's nodules, polyostoarthrosis produces painful nodules on those joints that are located approximately in the middle of the fingers( proximal interphalangeal joints).These are Bushar's knots. They are spindle-shaped, develop very slowly and with a rare exception they almost do not hurt.

Rheumatoid arthritis

Rheumatoid arthritis - approximately 5-7% of all cases of pain in the fingers of the hands. People of any age are ill, but more often those who are over thirty. Women are sick about 5 times more often than men. The disease develops, usually after severe stress or after a flu, severe colds, infections or hypothermia.

Rheumatoid arthritis usually begins with inflammation and swelling of the metacarpophalangeal joints of the index and middle fingers( ie, with inflammation of the joints at the base of these fingers, in the region of the protruding bones of the compressed fist).Inflammation of metacarpophalangeal joints in most cases is combined with inflammation and swelling of the wrist joints.

Inflammation of the fingers and wrist joints with rheumatoid arthritis is symmetrical, ie, if the joints on the right arm are affected, then almost the same joints on the left arm are affected. The majority of those who suffer from the pain are often involved in other joints of the fingers and toes, as well as large joints - knee, elbow, ankle, etc.

For rheumatoid arthritis, the most common inflammatory rhythm of pain: joint pains intensify in the second half of the night, in the morning. Day and night pains usually weaken somewhat.

Very often listed symptoms are accompanied in rheumatoid patients with a feeling of weakness, fever, slimming and chills, i.e., the disease often leads to a general deterioration in the person's well-being.

Psoriatic arthritis

Psoriatic arthritis - less than 5% of all cases of pain in the fingers of the hands. The disease affects people most often in the age of 20-50 years. In most cases( but not always) the disease develops in people who already have skin psoriasis manifestations - dry flaking reddish spots on the body or on the scalp( psoriatic plaques).

To defeat the fingers in psoriatic arthritis is characterized by the so-called "axial inflammation, when on any finger all of its joints swell at once. The finger at the same time turns red and looks like a sausage. A similar pathology is called - "sausage-like" finger.

In psoriatic arthritis, axial inflammation can occur in any finger. But notice that with this disease, the inflammation of the fingers on the right and left hands is most often asymmetrical, that is, the fingers, as a rule, are affected on one hand;and sometimes at once on two hands, but then on one hand are inflamed one fingers and joints, and on the second hand - absolutely others.

For more information on psoriatic arthritis, see Chapter 19.

Gout, or gouty arthritis

Gout , or gouty arthritis-less than 5% of all cases of pain in the fingers.

People call gout deformity of the big toe, which usually develops in women. But in fact it is not gout, but arthrosis of the big toe. But the "classic", a real gout( gouty arthritis) often happens in men. Women suffer from gout several times less often.

And although the real gout is really often( but not always) begins with long-suffering big toes, it can hit any joints, both on the hands and on the legs.

Gouty arthritis usually occurs at the age of 20-50 years. The first, as already mentioned, the joints of the toes or knee or ankle joints are more likely to become inflamed. On the hands of others, the joints of the thumbs are inflamed more often( but any other fingers, either on one hand or both) can become inflamed.

Inflammation of the joints with gout occurs in the form of attacks. In most cases, a gouty attack happens quite unexpectedly: it usually starts on a background of complete health, most often at night. Pain in the joints with a gouty attack is often very acute: according to the patients' stories, "she wants to climb against the wall".The affected joint blushes with such an attack, the skin above it becomes bright red or crimson and hot to the touch.

Although in some patients, especially in women, seizures flow milder, without redness of the joint and without such acute pain. But in any case, the attack with gout arises unexpectedly and lasts from 3 to 10 days;then he suddenly passes away, as if nothing had happened. However, after a while, the attack also repeats again suddenly.

Here is a paroxysmal course of the disease and is the hallmark of gouty arthritis.

Tenosynovite de Kervena

Tenosynovitis de Kervena - approximately 5% of all cases of pain in the fingers of the hands. It is an inflammation of ligaments and "small" muscles in the region of an exceptionally large finger. Other fingers with tenosynovitis de Kerven are not inflamed.

Tenosynovitis de Kervena can occur at any age in both men and women. Characteristic symptoms: pain at the base of the thumb and under it, where the thumb touches the wrist joint.

Pain may occur spontaneously, "on level ground," but most often they appear when the thumb is loaded, when you try to press your thumb on something or when you try to grab something with your thumb and index finger. In addition, pain intensifies when the thumb is extended to itself, that is, toward the elbow.

For more information about tenosynovitis de Kerven, see chapter 6.

Risartrose - Thumbnail arthrosis

Risartrose - approximately 5% of all cases of pain in the fingers of the hands. Risartrose affects the joint located at the base of the thumb and connects the thumb of the thumb with the radiating joint.

Usually, rizartroz is one of the manifestations of polyointearthrosis of the fingers, and then the diagnosis is not difficult. But in about 20-30% of cases, rizartroz arises as an independent disease, usually in people who are constantly heavily loaded or once extremely overloaded the thumb. In this case, it may be difficult to distinguish between rizartroz and tenosynovitis de Kerven, since the symptoms of these diseases coincide by almost 90%.

In this situation, we will be helped to distinguish between rizartrosis and tenosynovitis de Kerven deformity of the bones of the patient joint, which is clearly visible on examination and is clearly recorded on the x-ray image( with tenosynovitis de Kerven on the x-ray, only soft tissue changes over the joint can be detected - and even that is extremely rare).

For more information on rizartrose, see the chapter on polyostearthrosis of the fingers.

hurts when bending finger on hand, not fully bent

Lika Chan

Maybe you broke it


Physical manifestations of
Fingers are moving parts of brushes: they can perform many different movements with great accuracy. Under the problems with the fingers, we will understand pain, loss of flexibility and perimeter.
Emotional causes of
Since fingers provide the accuracy of our actions, the problem with one or more fingers indicates that the person's striving for accuracy does not have a reasonable basis. This does not mean that he should not pay attention to details;rather, he should do it somewhat differently. Problems can occur when a person breaks his fingers( worries, worries), beats himself on his fingers( reproaches himself for an act), or blames himself for not having moved a finger( reproaches himself for laziness and indifference).Each finger has its own monodaosomatic significance.
THE GREATEST FINGER.This is the main finger, since it controls the other four fingers. He represents the conscious and responsible part of our personality. The thumb helps us push, promote. Problems with this finger indicate that a person wants to push someone, promote and is too worried about trifles. Perhaps this person feels that someone is promoting or pushing him or that he is pushing himself or someone to realize some idea, to make some decision.
INDICATIVE FINGER.This finger represents strength of character and determination. With the help of this finger, we indicate, give orders, threaten or explain our words. The index finger represents power. Problems with this finger may indicate that a person is too often indicated by someone who has power over him.
MIDDLE FINGER.This finger is associated with limitations and inner life. The middle finger is also associated with sexuality, so problems with it suggest that a person strives for excellence in this field and shows excessive sensitivity and sensitivity.
THE UNKNOWN FINGER.This finger very rarely acts separately from the other fingers. He represents the ideal of marital relations and dependence on another person in the process of achieving this ideal. Trouble with this finger indicates dissatisfaction, grief in intimate life. A person who hurts a ring finger is prone to bias, and it hurts him.
MUSINESS.The little finger represents mobility of mind and sociability. The ease with which he departs from the other fingers speaks of his independence and natural curiosity. He is also connected with intuition( "I sucked it out of my little finger").A person who has a pinky hurts reacts very sharply to what other people think about him. He does not dare to assert his independence and use his own intuition - precisely because he is too thirsty to be not like everyone else. This finger can hurt a person who blames himself for not even stirring his little finger( that is, he did not intervene in something, did not make the slightest effort).
If it happened with a finger FOLD, see also the corresponding DESCRIPTION.
Mental causes of
Generally speaking, all the problems with the fingers indicate that you should not be distracted by details that at the moment are not of particular importance or do not concern you at all. Your desire for excellence is not always justified. It is very good that you are able to notice small things, but you should strive for excellence only at the level of your personality: what you decide to do or have should help you to be in harmony with yourself and the world.
Spiritual causes and elimination of
In order to understand the spiritual causes that interfere with the satisfaction of the important need of your sincere Self, ask yourself the questions contained in the monadotherapy material. Answers to these questions will allow you, not only to more accurately determine the true cause of your physical problem, but also to eliminate it.
