Arthritis or nerve: Usually patients who wake up with stiff fingers have some early arthritis in their joints. Sometimes the nerve in the wrist can be pinched. If you have numbness and tingling in your hands in certain positions and wake up with stiff fingers you may have carpal tunnel. Xrays or a nerve study will give you more information. Good luck!
