Hand stiffness, recurring on lying down, not pinched nerves. Causes and treatment?

For a month now, my hand has started to feel very stiff in the mornings, to a point where I can t curl my fingers without it being painful. When it gets like that, and I try to make a fist, it feels like my fingers pop out of place. If I get up and move around for a bit, it subsides, but the stiffness always returns when I lie down again. I don t think it could be a pinched nerve because it s not constant; it s only when I lie down/sleep. I don t experience any tingling/numbness on a regular basis either.

Hello and welcome to HCM
Can you please tell me your age? Both hands or any other joint involved or not? Pain last for what time period?
As per your symptoms you might have Carpel Tunnel Syndrome of the hand. But needs to be investigated in detail for other causes also. The other causes which may result the problem are Rheumatoid Arthritis, Gout or Osteoarthritis. Consult your doctor and get rid from your problem.
Till that you can try Wrist band with thumb support, Local diclo gel application and some analgesic and anti inflammatory drugs.
Don't work more in computer and don't lift weight. Try some wrist exercise if it is not painful.
Hope this will help you.
