When i wake in the morning my midle finger will not staighten out. i hav to manipulate it to straighten it and it feels like it pops back into place. the joint from this finger in the palm of my hand is sore, swollen and feels ard. i have had bloods taken for all none arthritic, systemic, thyroid etc conditions with no abnormalities please advise.
I have the same problem with my ring finger of my right hand. I think it started after using a chainsaw for a long period of time, but it hasn't seemed to go away. Did you ever find out anything about your problem?
Hi, I had the same thing. Someone recommended magnets. I didn't believe in it but figured it wouldn't hurt to try. At night I tapped a magnet on top and bottom of the finger and left it there all night. I can't remember how long it took but it did work and never came back. Try it, you'll like it. LOL
It could be an inflamed tendon on the palm of your hand. Try icing it to reduce swelling. Also make sure you're not curling/clenching your hands in your sleep - many, MANY people do this so it's not unusual. Purchase an over the counter wrist brace that will keep your hands and wrists in a neutral position through the night.
Did you every find out what it was? I would bet it is trigger finger. I had the same thing and had never heard of it before going to the doctor. He suggested going to a orthopedist and I had a shot in the palm of my hand (VERY painful) but it did help the problem. He said that the tunnel that the nerve goes through gets irritated and won't release. Hope this helps.
