Have I got RSI


Hi my CTS was treated effectively by steroid injection earlier this year however i am now experiencing major pain in the palm of my hand. It hurts to touch and all fingers feel like the tendons have been shortened. The only comfortable way to hold my hand is in a claw-like position. Is this RSI or could it be linked to my CTS? Thank you


it doesn't sound typical of CTS but might be one of the other conditions which is associated with it - trigger digit or Dupuytren's contracture. There is a page of the site dedicated to a discussion of this - see 'The Triad'. JB


If it has come on quite quickly and all fingers are affected it could perhaps be inflammation of the flexor tendons. EK
