Question: I have several lumps on bilateral forearm. the lump located on the upper forearm is very painful and when pressed on it causes my fingers to go numb. I have been seeing my ortho doctor, he believes the lumps may be lipomas
, I also am having a lot of pain on my thumbs, wearing spica thumb splints, cortisone
shot, but the pain is really bad. Its been going on for about one month and the pain is not getting any better. I see my ortho again next week but the pain is very bad. I have pain medicine but I don't like taking it, I take Tylenol
but not enough for pain. I have upper GI problems so I am unable to take anti-inflammatory meds. Can you suggest something else to relieve this pain?
