Re: [IP] Stenosing Tenosynovitis ("Trigger Finger")



I, too, have trigger finger in my thumb and middle finger of my right hand.
About a year ago, I had the same problem in the thumb and middle finger of
my left hand, and they eventually returned to normal on their own.  Once in
a while, I would stretch the tendons slowly, and this seemed to help.
