Starting over a month ago I found myself waking up at night with intense pain in all my fingers. Once I started wiggling and moving them, the pain disappeared. I had an x-ray and the doctor told me there was no evidence of arthritis in the bones. The pain continued every night but was not present during the day.

I take glucosamine - I am slight of build - I tried wrist splints to keep my wrists and hands straight as I slept - I had a nerve test to ensure that all my nerves were talking to all my nerves. Nothing helps, nothing has been diagnosed.

This past week I have noticed that now the fingers all swell up while I am sleeping, in addition to hurting. The pain disappears as soon as I move the fingers. It takes a bit of time in the morning and then the swelling is all gone.

I have full mobility of the fingers.

Now, my left shoulder has started hurting all the time, I cannot sleep on my side, it is too painful. I cannot extend the arm out from my side, it hurts just in the shoulder area.
