In brief: Arthritic knuckles
Try hand exercises by relaxing your hand.
Start with your fingers straight and close together. Bend the end and middle joints of your fingers. Keep your wrist and knuckles straight. Moving slowly and smoothly, return your hand to the starting position. Repeat with your other hand. If you can, perform multiple repetitions of this exercise on each hand. Also try anti-inflammatory meds or splinting.
