I woke up yesterday morning with a sore thumb on my right hand. It was fine when I went to bed so I just thought I'd slept funny on it and went into work as normal.
By lunch time it was the size of a butchers sausage and it had that deep inside pain that I can only describe as feeling like tooth ache or ear ache but in my thumb.
I've broken a few bones before and started to wonder if it might be something more sinister and decided to drop Gareth a text .....
A quick trip to A&E at the Royal Berkshire hospital and an X-Ray later and I'm now sporting a black thumb splint type affair to protect the damaged digit as apparently I've chipped off a piece of bone from my knuckle - in my sleep it would appear. They've also mentioned that I have 'degenerative bone disease' in the offending thumb - arthritis
I suspect I've dropped a LOT of Wife Points in the last 18 hours
Pass the ibuprofen please.
