Since we live in the wonderful state of Co, you should get a Medical Marijuana Card. If your not looking/wanting the buzz but still want the pain relief, you can try tincture, They extract the THC and put it in a liquid solutions and put it in a bottle with a eye dropper, so you can put a few drops under your tounge and get pain relief without getting high. Taking that much Tylenol is so horrible for your kidney, that your really dont want to go that route imo

ajpz may be right, what I thought was carple tunnel was never diagnosed, but it was consistent with the symptoms I read about. The exercise I used that seemed to help relieve my problem was wrapping a packing rubber band around my fingers and thumb so they were closed/together. Then I would extend them stretching the rubber band. I did this for several weeks and it helped reduced my problems. This may not work for you, but may be worth a try.

I've been a full-time professional bodyworker (rolf structural integration, massage, craniosacral therapy, etc) for 12 years, and as it's been mentioned, it's often an issue of some type of nerve impingement or entrapment further up the nerves (shoulder, neck). If you can get in to see a good manual therapist, they might be able to help right away...worth a shot. Good luck.

Thanks again for the feedback and good wishes. I've seen my massage therapist, and she did find some rather sore knots in my shoulder (upper scapula) on the side that I'm having trouble with. Still having some morning pain in the hand, thumb, wrist, along with mild numbness & tingling. Wearing hand brace at night, doing mild stretches, taking 12 days of prednisone, and upping my B6 a bit. We'll see how a week on Deso goes, but the hand is definitely feeling better. I'll get back to a regular schedule with my massage therapist. No worries, I won't have surgery unless it's the VERY Last resort.
