Probably not: Probably not, unless you slept in one position for too long and compromised the circulation or nerve integrity.

Ativan: Swelling of hands has been reported. Drugs.Com notes muscle pain can occur but does not specify where. I can not find anything that alludes to problems with hand joints with use of Ativan.
