Swelling: Tendons swell in the morning, causing problems like trigger finger and pressure on the nerve, aka carpal tunnel syndrome. All tendons have synovial fluid surrounding it. It acts like a lubrication and has anti-inflammatory properties. When you go to sleep, you're not moving your hands as much, synovial fluid dries up, and tendons swell. You, "get the juices flowing, " ; less pain as day goeson.
