Hands in the morning

Postby Theresa34 » Wed Dec 24, 2014 7:48 pm

I just wanted to ask before I ring my nurse after the holidays. For those of you whose hands are a bit stiff in the mornings, do your knuckles look red? I have arthritis which I, told is in remission so don't take pills for it. I know you can have stiff hands with fibro but do your knuckles go red too?
I am a fibro fighter not a fibro sufferer. I will keep fighting from the minute I get up til the minute I go to bed.

Hi there...usually your knuckles would go red with arthritis. ....I have very stiff fingers in the morning and swelling too....but no redness.
The redness I would say is due to the inflammation in your joints , so I wouldn't worry x

Thanks hun x The last time I had redness and swelling was last year, which turned out to be arthritis. When i have the redness in the mornings it goes away after a while. I might check with nurse anyway, as i'm so worried the arthritis will return :(
