I feel your pain, literally. I was diagnosed today with DeQuervain's
Tenosynovitis, with resultant injection or Marcaine and Kenalog. I will
be fighting the highs for about a week. I am in a splint and my Ortho
also gave me a script for Voltaren gel. I have used it for other joint
issues and it works well. He says it works well for DeQuervain's. Good
lucj with your BG's.
