Hi. I am new to this forum. Has anyone ever awaken in the morning with stiff fingers? Painful fingers and not being able to bend them for at least an hour or so. A doctor told me I had osteo-arthritis. Just wondering if anyone has had this and what did you do for a remedy? Thanks!
I have RA in my hands and have often had this problem. I use microwavable mittens on my hands on bad days to get them literally warmed up. I have also heard that holding a bar of soap helps, but have never tested that - would sure be cheaper if it worked!
