UPDATE - there is nothing wrong with me - apparently
So i went to the Docs and she told me she couldn't see anything wrong with my hands - no swellling or anything - and then she told me to rest my hands for a while and to put ibuprofen gel 3 times a day. I swear that she must have thought i was a complete idiot because thats what i felt like when i walked out. I hate the docs in my surgery they are all horrible.
To sum up I can still knit. So - perhaps you all can advise me on what to do now? Like how long should i rest my hands for? Cos i do rest them and when i don't feel any pain i knit but then that causes the problem again. And what can i do to AVOID the problem?
