Anyone with ulnar drift? Please share the first definitive signs.
This had easy to read signs of early drift:http://www.mmarmedical.com/category_s/765.htm
It is possible to have ulnar drift from PsA. Here are the key parts from the piece:
Ulnar drift is a progressive disease. The first signs may include
- swelling at the knuckles
- difficulty fully straightening the fingers at the knuckles
- slight indication of the fingers drifting to the little finger side, particularly the index and long fingers
- gradually diminishing finger grip and pinching strength, along with hand function
Later signs may include
- deviation of the wrist
- inability to touch thumb to the index finger
The symptoms seem accurate. I have slight drift in my left hand. It started just like it says up top and in my middle & index fingers. You will know if/when it happens.
