Will Knuckle Stay Swollen When Have Gout
Hurt my finger while sleeping. Painful when moving it, and the knuckle doesn't seem to work smoothly. Could it be sprained? Can't afford doctor.
Possibly: Not sure what you did during the night, but yes if something happened you could have jammed and thus sprained your finger joint. How long has it bothered you? And can't exactly interpret the knuckle not working right. Definitely can buddy tape the finger to the next: ice, rest, NSAID of choice (motrin/naprosyn etc), and see if that helps. ...Read more

The base of my thumb metacarpals hurt. They hurt more with gripping. What could it be? They have been hurting for years but has gotten progressively worse. It hurts down to the carpals and i can make it hurt with manipulation
Statistically, : Statistically, you are likely to be a 50-year-old woman with symptoms in your non-dominant hand. These symptoms are classic for arthritis at the base of the thumb. (basilar joint = carpometacarpal joint = trapeziometacarpal joint) 25% of women and 17% of men will have arthritis in this area by age 70. If you are not in this demographic, there can be other causes. After an injury, the beak (aka volar oblique) ligament can be torn. This should be repaired if there is no underlying arthritis. Ganglion cysts can occur in this area. Less commonly, the symptoms can be referred from scaphoid fractures, scapholunate ligament injuries, dequervain's tenosynovitis, or skier's thumb. An evaluation by a hand surgeon can be quite helpful. I don't always get x-rays if i know it is arthritis and we are not planning surgery. Otherwise, i would get x-rays. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
