  • Do you have any knuckles that get "stuck"?
    I've been having problems with my hands. I have one finger, especially, that the knuckle feels "loose".

    I woke up this morning, tried to move my fingers, and this one knuckle wouldn't even move. It was like it was tangled up inside the knuckle. It finally got unstuck. Very strange feeling. I guess it is arthritis hitting me. I have "popping" in the palms of my hands, that is knew too. Falling apart, Falling apart,,,,,

    Have you been doing any repetative motions. When I got Nintendo in the 80's, my hands were like frozen claws after some allnight sessions.

    Sounds like it could be trigger finger...look it up on google. Here is one excerpt

    "Trigger finger results from a discrepancy between the size of the tendon and the entrance to the tendon sheath. This discrepancy can be the result of localized inflammation or a nodular swelling on the tendon itself.
    When the size discrepancy between the tendon and the tendon sheath reaches a critical point, the tendon will experience resistance from the tendon sheath. At first, this is experienced as a snapping of the trigger finger when relaxing a fist. If the condition worsens, the trigger finger may need active force from other fingers to straighten, or may not straighten at all. "

    I don't know if what I experience is what you are talking about...or if mine is called 'trigger finger', but here's what happens to me.

    It's been going on for several years now, and at first it was only the ring finger of my right hand. I would be doing something such as making a sandwich, and my finger would actually lock up against the handle of the knife or fork tight...I could not release it, and dang! it hurt to forcibly use my other hand and unlock? my knuckle. Now I notice it is also in my other hand. I was holding something, and started to let go, and it was tight against my hand....again, only way for me to get it to let go was to force it. It doesn't happen often, and when it does, it hurts.

    I'm glad I'm not the only one. In about the last six weeks this has happened to me. It is my left ring finger. I type for a living, so I just figured it was from typing so much. It is especially bad first thing in the morning. I mentioned it to my doctor and told him I figured it was arthritis and he said there is nothing they can do about it.

    I had trigger finger at the same time as my carpel tunnel. My finger would get stuck and Ii would have to manually pull it in place. The doctor went in and did a small slice (while doing my carpel operation). was a piece of cake and have never had problems with it again.

    There is a quick and easy surgical repair for trigger fingers. I had two beside one another, had surgery, and no more problems.

    My sister had several trigger fingers, along with what was basically carpal tunnel (both hands), but it was all caused by nerve damage from chemo. The surgery helped, but it's still not completely right.

    I used to have this problem, but a friend suggested Vaseline, and now they come right out.

    My DH had this several years ago and here's what he did after a trip to the family doctor and a hand specialist. Bought a pair of tight-fitting golf gloves and wore them all the time for about two months, then discovered that his finger wasn't locking up on him any more. He doesn't know and neither does the dr. what it was about the gloves, but it did the trick for him, and it's never returned.

    JoBlank, my friend, a retired hairdresser, her fingers will lock into a fist, will mention the golf gloves. Surgery didn't help her.

    When eating, she says sometimes her fingers will lock around the utinsel, someone has to help her unlock them, it's terrible for her.

    Jo, I saw in one of those coupon booklets in the Sunday paper, these gloves that were suppose to be good for problems with the hands. No finger tips in them. I am thinking of getting me a pair. My hands, for a while, would hurt during the night. In pain a lot. It might be carpal tunnel. My sister and mother has the same problem though. They wear splints to bed.

    It is my right ring finger. It is hurting now as I type. THis morning, it was locked in a curved position, against my hand.
