I am having pain/swelling inmy metacarpo - phalangeal joint of my right thumb (it is the jiint closest to the tip). Blood tests said no to arthritis, so I guess that is good. I am guessing it is a ligament tear that may need surgery. It has been sore for a few months and I have been to physio. Anyone with this?
