I was having pain in my thumb and wrist while crocheting, in my gripping hand. I would have to stop for a while and stretch things out.
But, as of last night, I am in constant pain and it hurts too much to crochet.
Has anyone experienced this? It's a horrible burning pain, there is a little swelling in my wrist and thumb.
Any suggestions would be wonderful. I use the metal hooks, do I need to get ones with an ergonomic handle? Any suggestions?
Thank you so much. I can't live without crocheting!
OK. . . I guess I worded this wrong, because while I certainly appreciate the advice that I've gotten, and it is all wonderful advice, it's not *quite* what I'm looking for. . . Anyone had any success relieving crochet-related pain with a particular hook? I'm considering the new clover soft-touch handled hooks, because my problem seems to be when I use the smaller hooks while making socks. I'm working with a larger hook now and not having any problems. I've also adjusted my grip and am not working so tight.
