|i too have been waking up with my fingers really stiff. My doctor says it is probably arthritis, but didn't seem too concerned about it. It started suddenly and involves both hands. Every morning my hands are so stiff it takes awhile to loosen them up. I read somewhere that it has to do with fluid retention in the arms and hands while you sleep. Now my fingers are sore all the time. I wish I knew what is causing this and if there is anything I can do to keep it from getting worse or to stop it! :?:|

I wake up with swollen, painful stiff fingers. my fingers hurt so bad they feel broken some mornings!
...but yet my blood work is normal. blah
I'm seeing a specialist next month
|I noticed that I could not close my right index finger. It is starting to affect the next finger as well. Doctor said it was carpal tunnel or a form of tendonitis. Could be, as I type a lot and use my hands frequently for crafts.
I notice that as the day goes on, the finger loosens somewhat. I can force the finger into a closed position, but feel tendon pain when I do so. I can close the finger normally after forcing it.
I'll try the Acai juice if I can find it.
