Why is my right hand often swollen when I wake up? It's not numb/tingling and I've had no injuries.

Positioning

Extremity-upper-hand
this is probably due to positioning, that is to say you maybe sleeping on that hand. Try to change your sleeping position and see if that helps.

What are some probable causes of swollen ankles and slight hand swelling with a tingling sensation?

Circulation?

Open-uri20130109-16606-nzkww9
If your blood circulation is compromised that would cause swelling in the extremities (feet more so due to gravity). Allergic reaction of some sort? Continuation of symptoms warrants a check-up with your MD. Good luck!

Dr. Barry Press answered:

The little finger of my right hand is swollen in the middle at the joint area and aches, why is this?

Probably a sprain

Open-uri20130601-13570-1dvrk8r
Sprains of the hand, especially sprains of the small joints of the fingers, are typically stiff, swollen and sore for a number of months-it sometimes takes a year or more for the soreness to go away, and sometimes the swelling can be permanent. It is a good idea to get a sprain evaluated early to make sure nothing else is going on and to completely understand the condition. See a hand surgeon.

Right hand is swollen and so much pain .pain runs down my right side of my body?

Not sure!

Extremity-upper-hand
Swelling implies some type of inflammation, or less likely a circulation problem. Radiating pain suggests a possible pinched nerve. Not common that these two things occur together. Many possible causes for these rather general complaints. Get it checked out by your doctor.
