Ever since I had my son, like 2 months ago, my left thumb has been locking up and hurting real bad. Today was the ultimate worst pain I have had in my hand. It locks up and will not bend, it hurts. I am only 20 and am wondering if it could be arthritis. I am not too sure. I have been trying to get an appointment with my doctor, but have not been able to.

  • Are you left handed? Breast feeding? I am asking because if could also be a cramp? or a lack of calcium? I have never heard of this before.

  • I am right handed and not breastfeeding. I take a calcium supplement every day. So I dont think that's it.
