I went to bed with no problem and awoke with painful, swollen hands and knuckles. The symptons deminish during the day and return after sleeping. There is also pain in my neck and upper spine. I was diagnosed with a degenerative disk about 10 years ago. Any ideas? Should I get an MRI or x-ray done of my spine?
