View Full Version : Fingers curling in

18th January 2015, 23:23
Hi friends.
For a while now my fingers on my right hand have been curling in. Over the last couple weeks they have got really worse. I knew it would happen, what I didn't expect was the pain in my finger joints and even my wrist. I suspect that the joints are seizing.
As anyone had a lot of pain when this has happened to them.

Hi David
Paul's fingers have been curling in over the last few weeks & this has caused him rather a lot of pain & discomfort, I try to massage his hands a couple of times a day & they do loosen up as the day goes on. We also put the slide board across the arms of the wheelchair & put his hands flat to give them a stretch. Paul has the same problem with his toes too.
Hope this may help

No pain yet with my right hand or wrist David, possibly you are further along with the disease than me though? If my situation changes I'd come back and say so.

My fingers are curled into my palms completely now. When it first started the joints were very tender and painful. As it progressed the pain subsided and it's gone now, along with any hand function.

Thanks. So it's normal to have some pain, well that's a relief, NOT
i wish I could shout, I know a lot of swear words that I could shout from the tallest mountain. But that means another problem, I couldn't get up the mountain.

Sorry to hear of another hurdle for you David;

It's not nice especially if painful. Mine curl in a bit but usable and not painful yet.

Hope you find a way of getting it less painful.

Best wishes, Terry

I have no pain but my fingers are curling. I have been referred to have splints made to wear at night.

Hi David,

Jeans fingers started to curl in but we massaged them and then she wore a splint which kept them straight for an hour or so a day. It came from the physiotherapist.

Mum had a lot of pain and was prescribed among other meds Duloxetine and splints with physiotherapy. Duloxetine has many uses (including psychological) but it works well on musculoskeletal pain. Hope you get sorted.
