Two weeks ago I started waking up with stiffness in one finger and pain if I tried to bend it. It would get better throughout the day, but now the finger is completely stiff 24 hours a day. It has spread to another finger quite badly, and I can feel it a bit in two others. No other joints have stiffness or pain, just the middle knuckle of the fingers. I started taking vitamins and Omega 3 from a highly rated "premium" supplement company 3 weeks before the problems started. Stopped taking all vitamins today after reading posts on fish oil. I also type on the computer frequently but can only use 1 finger now. Any ideas? Thank you!
