So It seems I have tendonitis, or something similar. My doctor gave me some medication that is supposed to make the pain go away and help fix things. It doesn't do jack shit. My hand hurts more now than it did before. I can barely brush my teeth in the morning and I haven't shaved in a week (the idea of shaving with my left hand scares me, I like my face the way it is, thanks). I bought a thumb trackball thing to use at work in the hopes that it will help. So far it seems to be working, but it is taking some getting used to.

That is painful! A couple of summers ago, I had a flare-up and my fingers ended up looking like albino sausages.

would a wrist brace help at all?

I don't know. I'm going to try and see a specialist. I've heard horror stories about using braces unless needed.
