Thanks Charlie. I started sleeping in a wrist brace. It is just a wrap with a hole for my thumb that wraps around the wrist.
Is there an even better brace I should consider..something for the thumb itself, or am I good.
Surprisingly I can do the diagrammed exercise without pain, but everything else that is described sounds accurate.
