In brief: Joint pain at night?
Pain in a joint occuring upon awakening or early morning usually signals inflammation.
Most of my rheumatic disease patients awake with some degree of discomfort or stiffness. This is called the gel phenomena. Patients with arthritis typically improve after inital activity. See your doc or rheumatologist.
