Hands hurt when waking up
I'm 18, and for the first time this morning I woke up and thought I had really really bad arthritis.  It was weird.  I don't think I slept on my hands...  Because usually sleeping on my hands results in a numbness or what people refer to as ''pins and needles''.  This was a different kind a pain... My middle finger on my left hand still hurts when I try to extend it, but other than that the rest of my fingers seem ok now.  Should I be worried?  How can I prevent this from happening again?

Thank you for any response.

I don't know if this is the same as what you describe, but for a while when I'd wake up, my fingers really hurt, and there was like some resistance in the joints when I tried to close/open my hands.  But I crack my knuckles alot, and that may have something to do with it.  I think it is related to the blood flow being cut off, and I wouldn't worry about it if I were you, but what you're describing could be different.

By the way, I think you've got the wrong forum here... no worries, but you may get more info on another forum, like the arthritis or pain management forum.  Here people talk about other things.
