Thanks for writing in.
The one thing I would like to rule out in the absence of trauma would be rheumatoid arthritis
. Please visit a physician for confirmation.
Rheumatoid arthritis sometimes presents with stiffness
of the joints (small joints ) , especially early morning stiffness of the wrist , fingers etc. A blood work up and X ray
of the hand might be necessary.
For immediate pain relief, please take a brufen
after food. Apply hot fomentation on the affected joints intermittently.
Hope this helps.
