The morning stiffness may be due to the lack of the physical exercise, also being overweight; diet is very poor, sleeping disorder. Exercising daily makes the blood circulation path smooth, poor diet causes weak muscles. In order to get rid of morning stiffness first you need to do is some kinda stretching while lying in the bed this will help to prevent muscle spasm and lead for better blood circulation, drink apt amount of water. Just keep into account a few tips so that the stiffness gets reduced.

Re: Morning stiffness? Need help

i have osteoarthrits in my left wrist, due to an old scaphoid fracture, and AVN. i usually have morning stiffness in my wrist plus pain. i can take ibuprofen, lodine, or some other type of nsaid to help with the stiffness and get some mobility back. it also helps with the osteo pain some. so i take hydrocodone for for the pain in the bone that is fractured and dying out..until i take these meds it is too painful for me to try and do exercises..after 30 min or so from takin the nsaids and hydrocodone i can move my wrist pretty good..i know ur pain is else where but if u even have otc nsaids it may help and if ur dr. writes u any narcotic pain meds, u could try that then work on an exercise.
