I have inflammatory arthritis affecting my hands,wrists, ankles and feet. The fingers on both hands are particularly affected. Over the last 12 months my index fingers on both hands “lock” in a bent position. This is painful but usually doesn’t last very long. For the last 2 days my right index finger has stayed “locked” and is very painful. I saw the Rheumatolgist a five days ago and she started me on a course of oral prednisolone to try to help with my painful fingers. I take Hydroxychloroqunine and Methotrexate. I am unable to take NSAIDS due to side effects Has anyone else had the “locked” finger problem and any tips or ideas. Thanks
