Why do my ring fingers lock forward when grasping?

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.

I would advise that you find a pain and weakness specialist (pm&r doc) to find out what is causing all three symptoms (weakness, tremor and trigger points). ...Read more
