Both my thumb nails get painful to pressure for no apparent reason. This started when I was out in the weather for about 8 hours a day for 4 days while on antibiotics.I don't remember any trauma to my thumbs. It was very painful at first and I thought it may have been the result of sunburn to my hands due to the prolonged exposure and the antibiotics. It gradually subsided and went away. It's been about 3 weeks and it's suddenly returned;stopped the antibiotics about 2 weeks ago. The pain isn't as bad, but the fact that the same symptoms have resurfaced is a little disconcerting. I've no other symptoms that I can tell. I know there are people here with far worse problems and I hope they get the help they need!
