Child: 55 years old
Location: Memphis, TN
Areas affected: Left hand
I was diagnosed 10 years ago. The disease has spread to other fingers on my left hand. On a scale from 1 to 10 for pain, 10 being the worst, the pain would be a 10. Just to touch my hand is very painful. I'm having trouble picking up things. At the time I was diagnosed, my doctor said he couldn't do a thing.
What I'm really worried about is movement of my left hand. I do a lot of typing and working in my garden. I have found that keeping heat on my hand helps for a while.
