Hello! My father passed away last year and this year when it was 1 year of his passing I work up with horrible middle finger joint pain. It is just in one finger-middle finger at the top joint close to the nail . It only hurts in the morning, and if I move my finger. Lasts for maximum 30 minutes and goes away. I went to a doctor, we did all the blood work which came back good, and we did x-ray which is showing mild arthritis on dip join on the finger. I am 43 years old just to let you know. My right hand is my dominant hand because my left hand is 90 %paralyzed since I was a baby. I had accident where my nerves were damaged . I can’t move fingers at all on my left hand, so now experiencing really bad pain on middle finger on the right hand is frightening me. I read all the books from Dr. Sarno and I understand that it could be due to my emotions . I started journaling but no improvement. Yesterday I had slight pain in finger which lasted 2 minutes today it is really bad pain. I have to say that I got so scared I started having really bad pain in my left hand too ,which is paralyzed ,but in the base of the thumb and muscle pain all over the arm. My pain started on October 5th and my finger hurts every morning. I don’t know what to do If I have osteoarthritis in fingers, can that be TMS? Thank you so much!
