Re: Both Hands Stiff And Hurt Every Morning

Thanks for the INPUT!!

DietDrPepper, As for new meds...not added recent . BUT, I am on Elavil (gained wt with this one, ), Oxycontin, Celebrex, Prevacid, MultiVit, and PRN meds Percocet, Nasonex, and Xanax. I've been on most of these for years or many months by now. Most recent addition, the Elavil.

My father is a in the medical field and he told me to sleep with my arms ABOVE my head at night....and this morning, I didn't have the aweful pain...just a little bit of stiffness. I thought I'd share that with all of you that have the same type of problem.

He thinks its from a muscle connected to the shoulders/neck....its either being squeezed by extra weight I've put on, or the muscle itself has gotten really big from me relying on my arms for a lot of work instead of my back.


But, I still need a Diagnosis, I have a Doctor's appointment in June, but I was just wondering if anybody has this and what a Doctor has said, what you have done to help it. ANY INFO HELPS!!!!
