Oh no! Could it be a colitic arthropothy? Like arthritis? I would suggests lots of water and a parafin hand dip. I've had tons of hand problems in the past and the parafin treatment (at a salon or at home) helped to loosen things up.

Marty, this happened to me when I was taken off pred. Nasty withdrawl symptoms. Maybe the pred is causing yours...just a thought

Hmm, when I was hospitalized, my hand with the IV stuck in it got swollen. I thought it was cuz of the IV, but it's either the meds or my UC. wish I knew which it was. Also, the bottom of my feet get hot flashes, it gets pretty hot. I shouldve mentioned it to the doctor at the time. I will when I see him this Thurs. Hope it's not something bad.
