Typing one finger at a time on my nook. Middle 2 fingers on right hurt bad. Ring finger feels like it is being twisted inside my finger. It feels stiff and is harder to straighten, but it can be done through pain of ~7. Ache in my wrist, and shooting pain in outer elbow. Shoulder begin to ache from holding hand at my chest.
Put a sling on, took vicodin and 800mg MO. Felt the pull in my finger relax as the meds kicked in and I didn't have to hold my arm up anymore. Decrease in pain followed.
I took the sling off for bed and I watched it tighten back up as I used my sholder and elbow again. Pain increased as it tightened and turned.

Woke up with it feeling really stiff, but not nearly as painfull. I'm typing with 2 hands. Slowly. Pain comes with use, straightening and tapping down, but it's gotta be worked out, right?
I've never had the "twisting" feeling in my fingers before. Sore, yeah. Shooting, yeah. Burning, itching, yeah, yeah. Twisting was new. It even looked crooked last night, but looks straighter this morning.
Kind of unnerving....
I thought the Rheumy said the innflamation was under control...
What is this?
