Hello Wr.Wb Doctor,

1 Answer:

Good afternoon, thanks for the question

Complaints of pain in the thumb to the wrist may be caused by the following conditions:

1. Tenosynovitis (inflammation of the layers of tendons and synovium)
2. Carpal tunnel syndrome (pinched of the median nerve)
3. Arthritis (inflammation of the joints)
4. Sprain (muscles around the sprained finger)
5. Overuse (excessive use of muscles)

While what can be done at home in an effort to reduce symptoms is to rest the joints and fingers, and avoid repetitive movements that involve the structure. If there are signs of swelling, it can be treated temporarily by cold compresses. If there are complaints of grasping becoming weak it is likely due to a pinched nerve, then you can use the wrist splint at night. Simple analgesic consumption can also help reduce pain complaints, such as paracetamol or ibuprofen.

To find out the exact cause and specific treatment, further examination with a doctor is needed. The examination includes a medical interview, general physical examination and localis, as well as additional examinations if needed. After the known cause can then be planned for further treatment, can be with oral medicines, injections, to physiotherapy.

That's all, hope you can help.
Wassalam.
