um... do you feel hot when you wake up? i know fingers tend to swell when it gets really warm. or maybe you're laying on your arms and cutting off circulation? i don't really know what else it could be

I have the same thing and usually due to my bending my arms while sleeping, my arms are painful to straighten as well. I have inflammation in my joints from arthritis and bursitis and tendinitis in my arms near my elbows. I have had injections, in my ankle, foot, both shoulders, neck and lower back since 1996 for pain. Now I am thinking it has caused the inflammation more so than the others aliments. I am only 54 not on a lot of meds and going to an arthritis specialist. Until then I exercise my hands and arms before bed with 3 pd weights and it makes a big difference. Muscle weakness can also cause pain.

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
It could be due to rheumatoid arthritis, hyperuricemia, hyperparathyroidism or eczema.
Consult rheumatologist to evaluate you.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
