I have OA in the middle joint of my middle finger and I found that when I sleep, it wakes me up when I bend it. I have tried using a pain cream before bed, wearing a glove and using a splint (which btw the morning after it feels like someone is taking a knife to that joint when I first bend it). Is there anything else I can try so my finger doesn't wake me up? I am already a chronic insomniac and I take Tylonel Simply Sleep every night (unable to use other sleep aids) and whatever rest I do get is much needed. So now that my finger is waking me up at night I am getting even less sleep. Any suggestions?
