Intense pain in palm, little bruised, swollen. Unable to grip anything. Cause and remedy?

I have intense pain in my palm on my left hand . It felt a little bruised yesterday for no reason and now it hurts like crazy. I can t make a fist or grip anything and it is very tender to touch. It may also be swollen some. If i had fallen or something i would think it was fractured but i haven t done anything to cause this. This exact same thing happened about 2 months ago. I was going to make an appt with my doctor and it just went away. I am a 39 year old female.

Hi there ~

I understand your concerns. If the exact same kind of pain was present about 2 months ago you probably had tenosynovitis that healed by itself. It usually results in all your symptoms that are typical of someone with that condition. I believe that you should have yourself examined by a doctor, to rule out carpal tunnel syndrome.

I hope this helps. Take care and have a lovely day!
