My hands feel swollen, painful, feel asleep, tingle and I have no grip. Is this a sign of an illness?

why does my hands feel swollen, painful, feel asleep, tingle, and I have no grip
? This has been going on since Thursday April 25. Also sometimes they feel like they are burning! They woke me up last night in sever pain. I applied ice packs it gave a little relief, I was able to fall asleep for a few hours, but when I woke up it was the same or maybe a little worse. Please give me some answers if any.


Thank You

Thanks for your query. The painful and swollen hand denotes inflammation definitely. It may be due to

Rheumatoid Arthritis ,since the pain worsened during morning.
Secondly it may be due to any crack or skin cracks.
The management of this condition - oral antibiotics and antiinflamm.atory drugs will resolve this problem.
