I recently moved and opened boxes, lifted heavy objects and painted, now my fingers especially when i wake up are either locked or simply cant make a fist. It takes a while before i can but feel that my fingers are swollen. I wake up during the middle of the night sometimes and notice that one of my hands fall asleep. I am allergic to NSAIDS. Help

it sounds like you may have carpal or cubital tunnel syndrome depending on which fingers in your hand are effected. this is entrapment of the median or ulna nerves in your arm. your dr should be able to make the diagnosis by examining you. there are non operative means to manage this from splints and physiotherapy to cortisone shots. surgical decompression of the nerve can also be performed.
