Hi, not sure if anyone can shed any light on this but I’m at a loss really as nobody can seem to help me.
I’m a 26 year old woman and in November I was diagnosed with ruptured ovarian cysts, had a scan for that and it has all normalised now. I’m December I was diagnosed with gallstones which were causing me a lot of pain so I am waiting to have the gallbladder removed. I then had a pain in my left thumb joint all of a sudden, it then moved to my wrist and then all into my hand, a chronic ache and throb and cramping. It then started exactly the same in the other hand, the same pattern aswell and is chronic in both of them! I have been to doctors multiple times who don’t know what it is, arthritic tests are all normal and as are xrays. I have been referred to a rheumatologist but the next appointment isn’t for another 6 months so I don’t know what to do. In this time around the same sort of time as the hand pain started, I had the Nexplanon contraceptive implant removed.
I had a test for PCOS and I am borderline apparently of which results were going to be sent off to an endocrinologist. I have a bumpy red rash which only appears on my palms, not sore or itchy just there. That goes with a steroid cream. My hands haven’t swollen or gone red or look any different, they are just so painful and cramp and achey to do anything and they feel weak. I haven’t lost any grip they just hurt. I have tried physio and acupuncture and nothing helps. They have been painful for 6 months now.
If anybody could think of anything or suggest anything I would be most grateful! I am at a loss of what to do next now.
