Thumb pain lasting over a year
I've been unable to get a unanimous decision from doctors so thought I'd see if anyone here can help.
I've been experiencing thumb pain on both hands, spurred on by bending or pinching with the finger. The pain is focused on two areas on each thumb, highlighted in the pictures below.
One doctor suggested Sesamoiditis and thought surgery to remove the bones would be the best idea, not sure it would explain the pain in the circled parts of the hand in my images. Though it would explain the X section in the pictures.
Cortisone shots have not helped, nor icing or rest. It's incredibly frustrating, I just want to be able to use my hands freely again. But don't know what action to take without an accurate diagnosis.
Any thoughts? I won't take it as gospel but any ideas would be appreciated to bring to my doctor.
