My hand went into a cramp and my fingers curled

My hand went into a cramp and my fingers curled and my hand curled closed. When it finally relaxed and I was able to open it I had a raised knot under my little finger and ring finger. About 2 minutes later the cramp completely released and the raised area gone. Then it hit again, this time I pulled off on the side of the road afraid I was having a stroke. Dont know why that was just the first thing that came into my mind. I have cramps in my legs and feet all the time. I take 3 potassium pills everynight before I go to bed to keep from having them.

Yesterday, after a day of normal activity (no exertion), just above my left wrist into my hand, it began to cramp and my middle and ring finger began to curl. All was isolated no more than 5 inches above my wrist. My face did become a little flush and these were all of my symptoms. I ve had hand cramps in my right hand before, after a day of yard work. This was in my left after a relatively normal day. Just wondering....

I ve been experiencing severe hand cramps (both hands) off & on for several weeks. Generally they happen in the afternoon and are very painful. After they start I can t open the cramped hand with out using the other one to assist. They start with the thumb curling inward to the palm then the fingers start cramping up as well. At that point the cramping hand is not usable. I occasionally get woke up by pain full leg cramps (calf & lower leg, one side or both) requiring getting out of bed to walk them off. I get potassium from both bananas & POM pomegranate juice as I ve been told cramps can occur from low levels. I m 59, male, take Losartin 100mg daily to control blood pressure but no other meds. Any ideas on how to lessen or eliminate the problems? Thanks, C. A. Mc Call

MY hand and fingers cramping up, usually in the evening, and sometimes during the day, if I do some work that requires something holding tied in my hand , like a hammer, or a knife. It hurts badly when it happens, and I have to pull my fingers open to the normal position, and often it repeats itself serveral times. when my hand and finger cramping up like that , my hand looks so deformed, and it is very painfull. I know that I have arthritic all through my body, but what exactly is wrong with my hand and finger ??????? Sincerely Rita
