Popping and pain in thumb
About 4 inches from the tip of my thumb at the joint my thumb keeps popping and it hurts BAD. I am thinking tendonitis or carpal tunnel, but I can't get to the doctor until next month.
I just started back dealing blackjack in a casino, I dealt for about 7 years but have been supervising for the last four. I never had any problems back then. Now, after just 6 weeks of dealing, I am in so much pain! I hold my thumb as still as I can and try to use the other fingers (as with typing this) but I need to try to figure this out.
I have bought an Ace bandage and wrapped my thumb against my hand, but I can't deal with it on, I can't wear a bandage this large at work.
Any ideas or suggestions? Thanks!
