Ring finger is locking up Help!

Went to Primary care Doc. He says it is because of DM Type II and it is Dupuytren Contractures. I also have my right shoulder that is frozen up and my stomach is locking up anybody like that? If so, what kind of doctor handles this crisis?

Re: Ring finger is locking up Help!

Hi welcome to the forum . You made no mention of the ring finger in your post. Recently I spoke with a Hand/Upper Limb Surgeon, who mentioned Trigger Finger was seen in many Dupuytren patients. Do you mean this?

My right hand middle finger also locked. I went to my primary GP who sent me to an orthopedic doctor. This is all the food chain per my insurance coverage.

I had the TFR (trigger finger release) and I'm not sure if I made things worse. My next step is continue PT and have another followup.

I may seek a second opinion with a hand surgeon if needed.
