That's an intriguing title! But I can tell you DeQuervains syndrome is very painful :( and I am feeling sorry for myself :( I am having problems finishing the painting on my wee witchy cottage and also doing some work on Lake View and I so wanted part of the witchy cottage finished for Halloween but I will try my best and Mr C is going to try and get the electrics in for me this weekend :(
When I was diagnosed I was given a wrist splint, told to take 2 weeks off work (which I didn't because of the workload and job security), given pain relief & referred to the physio department. Unfortunately I saw the same physio I had seen before who treated me for six months for a painful wrist and forearm and missed the fact that I had fractured my wrist!
I was told I required a steroid injection into the tendon sheath................AARRGGH - have a needle phobia :( Just because I work in a hospital doesn't mean to say I like needles!) and was told the physio doing the injections had a 'bit of a waiting list'! I really don't want this done at all :(
Sorry for the longwinded post but feeling sorry for myself today. I have been given some stronger pain relief from the doctors and hopefully can do some miniature work once they kick in:)
