De Quervain Tendinitis? Anyone?

I've noticed a post from Tenn Gal who also has such problem. I would like to mail her but no mail is allowed.

So is there anyone else who has such problem and for how long?

I have it since beginning of this year and I still have pain. Just wonder how long it will take to be completely healed.

    I had it for about 6 months and it was very painful. My doctor sent me to a specialist who injected a few shots of cortisone which completely relieved the pain for about 2 months then I would need another shot. After the third cortisone shot the pain was gone for good. So the shots helped get rid of the pain in the mean time while it healed and no more problems now.

    Are you sure about the diagnosis? If you are, then consider having a steroid injection for it. It hurts a lot but the results are well worth it.
