Answer: bend you left index finger and place your right thumb between your index and middle finger nuckle as far as you can, bend you right index finger over your thumb whilst you other 3 fingers are straight out then place it over your bent over left index finger and have fun entertaining yourself from there.
Answer: Depending on your sucking style, that is, the angle of your thumb, the length of time sucking per day, the intensity, and length of time for your habit in years, you may or may not have any affects.The worst case scenario for active, intense thumb suckers is an open bite where the top and lower teeth do not overlap in the resting, postural position and/or some overjet, otherwise called "buckteeth". The best case scenario is no dental affects and a very calm disposition because thumb sucking has been proven to reduce tension and to even raise the levels of dopamine, a natural, body produced hormone, that elicits good internal feelings.The great majority of thumb suckers have no to minimal dental affects.
Answer: Swelling, pain, lack of total mobility, a feeling of hotness, contusions and discoloration from hematoma. Note that these are also the symptoms of a bad jam or sprain.
Broken thumb generally occurs near the junction of the thumb with the hand or the metacarpo-phalangeal joint. So a broken thumb is frequently accompanied with a dislocation or subluxation of this joint.
Unless the fracture is unusually severe, and you can see angulation of the extremity, or ends of the broken bone (which is rare), there is no way to tell the thumb is broken without imagery. An xray at least is required to confirm.
Answer: Hyperextension of the thumb can be treated in different ways, depending on the true nature and severity of the injury. If the hyperextension injury was mild, and caused no fracture, dislocation, strain, sprain, tendon/muscle rupture, or swelling, then the injury may be treated with initial icing and a release to regular activities. Unfortunately, this is rarely the case. I like to rule out the bad stuff first. I will usually x-ray the thumb to ensure that there is no fracture. If a fracture is present, then the thumb will need to be splinted or casted for up to 6 weeks, pain control with Tylenol or a mild opiate will be necessary, and the patient will likely need some eventual occupational therapy to regain any lost range of motion. If no fracture is present, I go to step 2 (below)... I will then test all the joints of the thumb to check for dislocations. If there is laxity (looseness) in a joint, I will either splint that joint for 2-4 weeks and then initiate occupational therapy, or I will sometimes refer for an MRI to check for severity of the associated ligament disruption. Surgery is sometimes necessary. If no dislocation is present, I move to step 3... I check the passive range of motion at each joint of the thumb to further ensure that there are no problems with the joints. I check the active range of motion to ensure that there are no problems with the nerves, muscles, or tendons of the thumb. Problems with muscles, tendons, or joints will probably require splinting for a number of days or weeks, ibuprofen, ice, and eventual possible occupational therapy. If this is all okay, I move to step 4... I will check the muscle strength at each part of the thumb to make sure that none of the tendons that run the thumb are disrupted. If they are, it is possibly a surgical case. If they are not, I go to step 5... Finally, I check the sensation and circulation in the thumb, to further ensure that no disruption of the nerves or blood vessels of the thumb has occurred. If there is one, it may be a surgical case. If not, then conservative management with ibuprofen, ice, and possibly a light splint for a 2-7 days should be sufficient.
The most common symptom in carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) is numbness and tingling.
Since CTS is caused by compression of the median nerve in the wrist, the symptoms that result show up in the distribution (area of the hand supplied by the nerve) of the median nerve: the thumb, index, middle, and half of the ring finger.
Carpal tunnel syndrome symptoms show up in the thumb because the median nerve supplies sensation to the palm side of the thumb.

Answer: I used to play basketball and have jammed each of my fingers several times. Usually my coach would pull the finger out if it had not repaired itself. Then I would tape the finger (individually for my thumb) and then apply ice. My mom looked it up online and I still have the link which provides a more "medical" approach to it though...http://www.sportsinjurybulletin.com/archive/finger-injuries.html
Answer: A useful principle but not intended to be reliable in every situation. Meaning the situation applies to everything because long ago the rule of thumb meant 1 inch equals your top of your thumb, so thats the rule of thumb. Over the years it has taken a more figurative meaning.
Answer: If a rat bites you on the thumb, you will feel pain and say "ouch!" or something stronger.
After being bitten, clean the cut with soap and water and use hydrogen peroxide or another disinfectant to disinfect the wound. If the bite came from a wild rat, you should see your doctor to be sure there is no infection.
