thumb extensor snapping/catching
About 20 years ago, I cut the interphalyngeal extensor tendon on my dominant thumb.  Sutures were place at the doctor's office, and it seemed to heal and be functional.  Now I have begun to have occasional sharp catching and snapping on release with flexion of the thumb.  It is frequently symptomatic when using a computer mouse.  I cannot think of any direct reinjury, however I do a lot of hard physical work and could have bashed it without being aware.  I am trying to avoid seeing a doctor about this problem, and am wondering if some treatment is indicated or if it is the kind of thing one shoud just put up with.

Most trigger digits can be managed successfully with local steroid injections and splinting.
