Visiting from the Crohns and A/P forums. I have osteoarthritis as well as Fibro along with a 33 year history with Crohns. I have been waking up with really swollen hands and feet every morning. My hands are the worst. The skin on my hands gets really tender to the touch too and it takes a while for the swelling to go down. I will run my hands under warm water and massage them with soap to get them to ease up some.
Could osteoarthritis cause these symptoms or should I investigate a little further? My hands feel tingly like I have slept on them. I find that everytime I wake up my hands feel asleep and swollen. Just wondering if anyone has any idea whats going on?
