What causes swelling in hand?

The top of my right hand has been swollen for 4 weeks now. 3 weeks ago it was x-rayed to make sure it was not broken. Since then I have been on Naproxen and Codeine with a splint on my hand. It has not changed and now my thumb tip is numb. I do have Parkinson s could this be a symptom?

Hello,

Parkinson's disease is not commonly related to swelling of the hand. The swelling is related to accumulation of the liquids, usually due to an infection. I suggest to do a complete blood count for further evaluation to detect an infection in the system. Meanwhile, I suggest using anti inflammatory medications such as Naproxen to relieve the inflammation.

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

Regards,
Dr. Dorina Gurabardhi, General & Family Physician
