Hi !

Thank you for your query.


Looking into what you have given in history i think it is due to some muscle injury that you sustained during weight lifting . You havent mentioned what is the character of your pain , is it dull or it is accompanied with burning or pins and needles sensation , does it radiate anywhere or has there been any swelling anytime during this period

You said that it only occurs while you lift weight that is during a particular movement so there exists a possibiliy of tenosynovitis or tendinitis but it is very difficult to say anything just based on symptoms .

I advise you to go to an orthopaedician , get an X XXXXXXX hand done to look out for the cause whether it is bony or some muscular problems.

Hope you are satisfied with the answer.

Wish you good health.

Take care.

Dr. Shruti
