Brief Answer:

Kindly upload an image for review!

Detailed Answer:

Hi,

I will appreciate that you upload an image of the hand to show where it hurts.

Also, tell me for hoe long you have had this pain, what makes it worse and what makes it better.

I will like to know if there is any particular event that might have provoked this and what the trend of the pain has been over this time.

With the above information, I will be able to provide a personalized and helpful response to you.

Without it, the response might be too generic and not helpful.

In the interim, take Tylenol at most 4times daily and Ibuprofen at most three time daily.

You could also apply icepacks to the areas that hurts. This will greatly reduce the pain.

To upload an image, simply click on the link to upload a file and follow the instructions.

I do promise to get back to you with more insights and helpful recommendations as soon as the requested information gets here.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Brief Answer:

I recommend you continue with the Aleve!

Detailed Answer:

Hi,

Without an image, it is so difficult to diagnose and manage the pain.

For now, I recommend Tylenol at most 4times per day.

If this fails to address the pain, add aleve to it for better pain management.

Should this fail to help relief the pain, there would be need for a consultation and evaluation.

With an image, I could have weighed in even more.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
