Some mornings I wake up and I can hardly move my fingers. When I try to they are stiff and painful. In some instances I have to crack my fingers to get them to move. When they are really painful, the knuckles are sore and between the knuckles go purple.
My mum suffers with Raynaud’s syndrome and I wondered if this was related?
It is possible that you have a genetic disposition to Raynaud’s. However, you need to see your GP and have further tests to establish a diagnosis and treatment. In the meantime you will need to manage the symptoms with pain relief, light massage and keep your hands warm.
