The Little Finger Is Stiff Every Time You Wake Up?
HealthReplies.com, good afternoon.
Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. A stiff finger, regardless of whether it is a pinkie or other finger, can occur for a number of reasons, among them, especially in the form of joint abnormalities such as:
Dupuytren's contracture Osteoarthritis Rheumatoid arthritis Psoriatic arthritis Gout disease
To find out which of the above possibilities best represents your condition, we suggest that you check with your general practitioner first, to do a history dig, brief physical examination and supporting examinations such as measuring uric acid levels. Your doctor may give you anti-inflammatory drugs first for a few days, and if indeed the condition does not improve, you will be referred to an orthopedist for further evaluation.
Meanwhile, what you can do at home is every morning, do a kind of warm-up on your fingers by grasping and opening the fingers, squeezing your fingers together and avoiding lifting heavy weights first. So, hopefully it answers your question.
