I have developed over the last 3 weeks a weird pain in my left thumb. It started as just a niggle, but has got to a stage now, when I get to the top of my backswing I get a sharp pain running through my thumb and hand, there is no swelling at all, but I cannot stretch my thumb away from my index finger like I can on my right hand without it involving a certain amount of pain. I'm also finding it difficult to grip things like full coffee mugs and my laptop with this hand.
I have got a wrist support and have taken some pain killers, I know the doctors will just say to rest it, so I was wondering if anyone else has had similar symptoms and if so how could I go about trying to repair the damage.
