What Does It Mean When Your Fingers Lock Up
Trigger finger: Individual fingers can get locked in the flexed position when the flexor tendon gets caught at the a1 pulley in the palm of the hand just below the knuckle joint. Sometimes you can feel a knot right there. Treatment is rest and potential steroid injection if conservative therapy does not work.See 2 more doctor answers
Trigger finger: It sounds like you have trigger fingers. A nodule may be trapping your fingers in the locked position. I recommend you visit a hand surgeon. He or she will treat you with NSAIDs or injections that will help eliminate the problem. Surgery may also be an option depending on your history. Good luck. Http://orthoinfo. Aaos. Org/topic. Cfm?

Trigger finger: Generally, locking of the fingers or thumbs are caused by trigger fingers. This is a benign condition in which the tendon becomes entrapped around a structure called the A1 pulley. If this is painful, an injection or surgery can improve the symptoms. If this is not painful, you can live with this as long as you have full range of motion and full function.See 3 more doctor answers

The: The combination of a trigger fingers that often stays locked, arthritis in the small joints of the fingers, tightness and swelling in the fingers, and clinical deviation or deformity of some joints from more advanced arthritic changes can be overwhelming. Despite your fear of the shots you may want ot try again but understand that the injection alone may not solve all these issues. Even surgery, that can end the locking phenomena may still leave you rjoints stiff and sore for the other reasoons/problems I mention. Still do nothing and your not giving yourself a chance to get better antiinflammatories may help somewhat but are palliative not curative. See your pcp or see a hand surgeon, perhaps its time for reevaluation, new xrays another injection and possibly surgical treatment.See 1 more doctor answer

Cold fingers: You really should see a clinician to look at your hands. There is a large circle of patients who have a sensation of cold extremities; there are also a large circle of patients with cuts on their fingers from lack of moisture and minor injuries. Only a small group of patients have a rare condition called raynaud's that requires careful attention. This requires a physical examination.See 1 more doctor answer
Reynaud's Syndrome: Is and can cause blue fingers. If it is cold, or you smoke it can make it much worse. It has varying levels of severity from mild to digit threatening. It is a result of spasm of the blood vessels supplying blood to the fingers.
Carpal Tunnel: Syndrome can be a culprit as can pinching of the ulnar nerve at your elbow. In carpal tunnel symdrome typically your thumb, index, middle and ring finger are numb, in ulnar nerve entrapment your pinky and ring finger are numb. If your whole hand is numb it could be both or a metabolic issue like diabetes (most common).
See a dermatologist: It is difficult to make a proper diagnosis since I am not there to see the condition. I recommend seeing a dermatologist so that they can make a proper diagnosis and give you something to get rid of the condition or relieve symptoms. It could be a fungal infection.
