Trigger finger?: Trigger finger is a common condition in which the tendons on the palm side of the hand get caught as they slide through rings of connective tissue. This can result in fingers getting stuck in flexed position. Another cause of fingers locking is carpal spasm, which can be caused by very low calcium or hyperventilation. If persistent, see your doctor.
