Nerve pain in thumb
Hello.

For a few weeks I have been experiencing shooting nerve pain my left thumb. The pain/numbness occurs at the base of the thumb joint where it meets the web part of hand. Rubbing over this area, i can feel the nerve move across the joint. Pushing on the inside of thumb causes tingling/numbness but when I try to grip something I will get sharp shocking pain into thumb. I've been icing it but when I go ti stretch I feel the nerve being stretched in thumb which is painful. Is the nerve being impinged near the thumb joint or is it closer to the palm? Is it more than likely a caroal tunnel issue? Any treatment suggestions appeeciated. Thanks

Sounds like carpal tunnel. You can buy a wrist brace to keep it stabilized.
