    Since December 2012 I use my Vamo, getting alot more pleasure out of vaping. So much, that i leave the Vamo barely out of my hands.

    Yet that is quite a difference in weight compared with an EGO 1000mAh battery i use before that.

    Two weeks ago I began to have a problem with the thumb of my right hand. In the morning I could not stretch it easily and it seemed like it stretched with a 'nod' in the movement. Funny, I thought at first, especially because after half an hour it disappeared again.

    But since one week the pain stayed there during the day and, depending on the movement I made ​​with my thumb, it hurt a lot.

    Today I went to the doctor with the complaint. I described the problem with my thumb. And he soon came to the conclusion that I suffer from a so-called trigger finger.

    He asked me whether i overloaded my hand and thumb in the recent weeks with something. I do almost everything with my left hand, except vaping with my Vamo. Which is always in my right hand. Ahaa, cause found.
    The weight of the Vamo and the fact that it's almost the whole day in my hand, the muscles in my arm and hand are tense continuously. Pressing the button with my thumb was just taking the drop. Even such a small movement and load, according to the doctor, can cause a trigger finger.

    Now I got an injection with anti-inflammatory. In two weeks, the pain should be gone. Otherwise, the injection may be repeated one more time. If that doesn't help then a surgical treatment is the only solution. I think (hope) it will not get that far.

    I would almost call it a vapor's thumb. More people here with a vapor's thumb?? :)
