Tightness In My Hands

Finger pain: Inflammation of joints or arthritis is one possibility, but simple overuse and sprain may be the cause. Arthritis symptoms would last longer and be accompanied by joint tenderness and morning stiffness may be present. If symptoms persist consult a rheumatologist for evaluation, advice and treatment. Try to avoid activities that stress your hands. Anti-inflammatory meds like Advil help, if you can

Tucking your chin back helps some control pain as well as having the affected arm over the head. Try traction with a therapist
