Index finger tendon

Common Questions and Answers about Index finger tendon

finger

In conditions like carpal tunnel syndrome there is tingling in hand which may be accompanied by pain and stiffness of wrist and fingers. Trigger finger can also lead to pain in index finger, knuckle and other hand parts. This occurs after repeated trauma to the sheath over the knuckle and tendon. There is inability to bend the index finger and straighten it back. You may take an over the counter anti-inflammatory medicine, such as naproxen for pain relief.
I lacerated the tendon between my fingernail and knuckle on my left index finger about 4 years ago.(on the top of the finger). I had surgery to repair the tendon and then had to have the internal sutures removed about 6 months later because they used a thicker suture and they kept poking through the skin. Since then my finger has a clicking sound when I bend it but as of lately it is very painful all the time and the pain shoots up my arm at times.
My right index finger has been swollen for a month now. the knuckle is painful to the touch, but i'm able to bend it. Any ideas what it could be?? Thanks for any help!
I took a puck off of my right index finger and didn't really notice any immediate pain. Over the next couple days I noticed that I couldn't form a fist because my finger was very swollen and hurt to bend that far. Upon further observation I noticed that my first finger knuckle had become very wide, but the rest of my finger remained regular size. It is also very sensitive to touch. This injury happened about a month ago, and I left it assuming it would just heal itself as most injuries seem to.
I have been developing numbness in the left index finger very recently,I normally take B12 pills in excess, does this have any influence or show any sign of any disease any kind, I eat a nonvergetarian diet, am slightly obese, I am worried about this numbness, I heard some sideeffects of overdose of B12 pills, can you post a reply regarding how to treat this numbness

Any info anyone has is greatly appreciated My husband cut his tendon (not all the way through) in his index finger (one that runs along the top) 3 weeks ago (near the base of his finger)...he was treated in emergency where they stitched it together and gave him a splint to wear. He has been in a lot of pain since and had a lot of swelling that is still happening. He has seen our family dr a couple of times who doesn't think it's doing as well as it should.
When I try to make a fist or try to turn knobs, it appears that it snaps and dislocates. I can't put any pressure on my index finger. I went to the family doctor and she said to put ice on it and take naproxin sodium. She said that it was probably my tendon.
Some where between the 2nd after the 3rd operation e lost the ability to bend his index finger, he can only bend it at the first joint closest to the palm. he can not curl finger, it only bends flat from the palm. and is now unusually bending upward and towards the middle finger. First We were told it was due to the pins in his arm/elbow. now after a week of no pins no cast. we are told it may not ever return.
I had a serious accident on 12/5/10 where my middle finger was amputated between the 1st and 2nd joints (above the PIP) and my index finger was fractured (not sure what type of fracture, but it goes horizontally across my finger). Doctors were unable to save the middle finger, but they sewed up my index finger the night of the 5th (it was pretty much split open). I had surgery the following day and had 2 pins inserted into my index finger.
I was further dissapointed when he then said I should live with the dissability instead of having a tendon transfer from the index finger. He's made an appointment for me to see him in two months and suggested I make a list of reasons what I can't do with the thumb before he considers whether or not I should be put forward for a tendon transfer op.
There is a small nodule found at the distal end, towards the base of my right index finger. It started growing and now it is around 5 or 6 mm size. It is movable and firm, i suppose with no pain, only mild pain during pressure. no problem to use my hand for writing or others. could it be a lipoma? will lipoma occur there? any reason to worry?
i jammed my index finger playing basketball over 7 years ago. i developed a bit of mallet finger. it is not too severe, but it does not totally straighten out at the tip. will a splint do the job to fix it?
There could be various causes for the burning sensation in the thumb and index finger including neuromuscular and inflammatory conditions, infections, and diseases affecting blood flow to the thumbs. Diseases like diabetes, peripheral neuropathy associated with it can damage one or more nerves causing pain, numbness and burning sensation.
Tried stretching my hands and fingers before working but now experiencing quite severe pain and swelling in the joint where my index finger meets the hand as well as in my wrists and even up to my elbows. The most significant swelling in on the top side of the hand as opposed to the palm side. The pain is in both index fingers. I've been using ice and a gel which I've been massaging into my fingers. I use my hands a lot... typing, gardening, piano, cleaning.
In your case the problem may have been there for a long time, but repeated clicking of the mouse (thus injuring the tendon of index finger) could have triggered the pain now. Application of ice pack, anti-inflammatory drugs, wearing wrist braces, stretching and strengthening exercises when the pain subsides and modification of the way you click mouse goes a long way in avoiding further injury and treating the present symptoms. Try these tips.
I had surgery on my left middle and index finger because it was cut through a glass but anyways, it's been a little less than a month and when do you think i can play sports again? especially volleyball. And now I can pretty much bend my fingers but I can't straighten them out. It's still swollen but it's pretty much gone.
There is little to no numbness. The ring finger is the same as well. But my middle finger, index finger and thumb are definitely numb and slightly swollen. My index finger, though, is the only finger experiencing some pain along with the numbness and swelling. Things to note: I did not bang my elbow on anything.
Hi there, I had an operation to the tip fo my index finger, following a cut from the rays of a bike wheel. The cut was deep enough to require stiches to the nail bed, therefore an opearation was requested by the local doctors in France, under anesthetic of the entire right arm. The operation went well, the finger nail was raised to allow the stiches (3) to be placed.
The other day I picked up a log to put in the fireplace and heard a snap in my hand. Since then my middle and index finger have been sensitive to pressure. They hurt when I straighten them all the way and when I pick something up. It also seems to be bothering my wrist. I am not sure but think I may have something like carpel tunnel or tennis elbow, (I am a painter and do a lot of repetitive motions, and have forearm/wrist pain), and it seems to be bothering that.
He monitored the finger and advised he thought the tendon was not attached to the finger. In Dec 09 he performed another surgery. He advised that the tendon was not attached to the finger when he was able to open up the finger. He stated it was curled up around the joint. He reattached the tendon with what he described as a "grappling hook" and inserted a rod into the end of the finger to keep it im-mobile while hearling.
I have a very swollen index finger on my left hand . What can cause this? Iv had a mastectomy and all my lymph glands removed . Could this be the cause.?
I noticed when I made a fist or exerted force a tendon popped up in my good hand and it didn't in my cut hand and I could also feel an obvious difference. If you make a fist and follow an imaginary line between your index and middle finger down to your wrist you will see the tendon pop up. It is a very strong tendon. I am describing my dorsal wrist so you know.
A few days later I visited a hand specialist and was told i needed surgery which I had to repair ulnar nerve in thumb, index radial nerve in index finger and also thumb flexor tendon. I am still numb but on a recent visit to my Doctor he mentioned I also had severed an artery but that this wasn't repaired. Should I be worried.
this happened about 3 months ago and I can't feel half my ring finger, all my middle and index fingers and half my thumb, also I cant move my index finger. I have gone to a surgeon and was told I need to have surgery done. the thing is I am having a hard time getting coverage for the surgery, My question to you is...can the longer it takes to receive surgery effect how successful it will be?
My 87 year old mother -in -law has severe pain in her fingers, trouble straightening the index finger, it gets stuck then pops back up, She has had 2 cortisone injections and within a few days the pain is back. Anyone with similar problem??
They don't feel stiff and if I push them down with my good hand and let go they will pop back up. I noticed now my index finger, the joint closest to the nail, will not curl under when making a fist. If a few fingers don't work properly does it tend to affect the other fingers? I'll admit something.. I'm scared to seek help even though I may need it.
Hi I am Brian I cut my Index Finger 2 years ago, but there is still pain when I bend it tightly Cut Location = Index Finger on the left hand, a deep diagonal slash on the second segment of my index finger, the diagonal cut starts at the upper portion of the second segment and ends at the middle of the second segment of my index finger.
I'm a hair dresser for 14 years now, last Saturday my right index finger curled In and wouldn't move for roughly 5 mins. I had been spraying hair spray and such. It just curled in and I couldn't feel my finger or hand. No pain, no tingling, nothing. It just felt dead, like I would never move it again. Then after 5 mins it opened and was totally fine?!! I do yoga 5 days a week and the elliptical, so I'm pretty healthy. But what the what??!! Help.
Ever since then, she is unable to put her index finger down when bending her wrist. X-rays and ultra sound show the tendon is possibly fused to the new bone. We were told they could most likely just snip the tendon and she will be just fine. My question is, how common/uncommon is this and is there any other alternatives to surgery?
