User :   I have increasingly intermittent pain in my wrist hand thumb and indsx and pointer fingers on both hands, right one is worse. It inhibits my ability to grip or keep ahold of things and is painful and difficult to bend fingers, there is minimul swelling and no numbness or tingling. I have had blood tests and xrays to rule out authritis. No injurys..I am currently trying a wrist brace from the dr but it is not helping and only supports my wrist not my fingers or thumb especially. I am an administrative assistant so am on the computer and phone a lot but do not play any sports.. Any thoughts?
