Finger swelling while sleeping

Common Questions and Answers about Finger swelling while sleeping


Avatar n tn I have swelling the area between my index finger and my thumb. I'm thinking it is the muscles & ligaments in this area. The area is hard and swollen and painful to hold and move those two fingers. Additionally, the range of movement for my thumbs have been reduced to 50% I cannot stretch my thumb back without serious pain and discomfort. This is the case in both hands and it just occured between last night while sleeping. What could have cause this. P.S.
Avatar m tn The following morning all swelling was gone. That evening I developed swelling in the genitals. Swelling lasted about 24 hours. I had a full day with no new symptons, and then my righ foot swelled up. The foot swelling was quite painful, but began subsiding after about 12 hours. Unfortunately my the swelling moved to my left foot. I also experienced some swelling in my left cheek during this same period.
Avatar n tn About 3 weeks ago this all started, where my right foot was swollen and my right hand was completely swelled up. My left hand had some finger swelling. This went down in 24-48 hours. Then a couple of days later my right knee became so stiff over a few hour period, it became extremely difficult to drive my manual car home from work. It was a nightmare pushing the clutch in. I have also had random episodes of both my bum cheeks feeling very hard at the top.
Avatar f tn The thumb could be swollen due to arthritis-rheumatoid, gout, injury (like thumb twisted while sleeping), inflammation of the sac of joint, a *****, insect bite, allergy or contact dermatitis to something, tendon injury or inflammation, clot in blood vessel, infection of the skin or pulp of the thumb etc. Dip your entire thumb in warm water to which a pinch of salt is added. Keep it in for 5-10 minutes. Do this 3-4 times in a day. Take an OTC analgesic and anti-inflammatory pill.
Avatar m tn There was no pain on BM but swelling and pain an hour or so afterwards and this swelling continues for the rest of the day. Probiotics has helped the inside but the outside is still very aggravated. It is never normal but is much worse when sitting and walking, much better after sleeping. A colonoscopy revealed nothing. Steroidal creams do not seem to help. Over the last few days there is a blue swelling around my anus that comes and goes.
387660 tn?1242600342 Hi There, I have been experiencing the same symptons while I drive. I don't have a problem sleeping at night and hardly ever wake up during the night either. Before I drive I am always well rested nor am I really tired, but I still doze off. I have tried music, having the window open, have the passenger talk to me, pinching myself, slapping my face but sometimes none of these work. At times I have just pulled over, but then I am completely awake again.
Avatar m tn it feels dry and it also hurts but not the point that its stopping me from using the keyboard or the mouse. what could this possibly be? maybe bad position while sleeping or something?
Avatar n tn I had surgery done on my broken pinky finger on January 1, 2008, which I broke while playing football, and I was in the cast for 6 weeks after that. After the cast came out, the doctor told me to go to therapy for 6 weeks/ 2 times a week to get rid of the stiffness in the finger. Now it is May 5th, 2008 and I have 2 more weeks of therapy left but still the finger is a little stiff. I can bend it but not fully and in terms of going back up it doesn't move at all.
Avatar n tn Not sure I am posting in the correct area. I have had a painful swelling in the upper right side of my labia minora. It is very swollen and painful. I have done a search, but the only thing I find is for a Bartholin gland cyst and my husband doesn't think it looks the same as my swelling is on the same part only on the upper portion of the labia minora. Any thoughts or suggestions would be appreciated.
Avatar n tn Then one night a few years later I itched the burning between my toes for quite a while till I had a little relieve with one index finger and days later I noticed the same index finger sweating or weeping spores of sweat lots. It later eventually hardened and now 22 years later it still has index finger, thumb and middle finger on both hands-*****!!! It travels through contact and things used daily-iPhone ,video game controllers , steering wheel, Mac book keys or CPU keys.
Avatar n tn “Compression at the elbow, known as cubital tunnel syndrome, causes numbness in the small finger, half of the ring finger, and the back half of the hand over the small finger. Initially, the numbness is transient and usually occurs in the middle of the night or in the morning. Most cases will be minor and tend to come and go with time. Common causes are sleeping with the arm folded up, so the hand is at the person's neck and the elbow is sharply bent.
Avatar n tn And i do use earphones while sleeping so is it just a swelling caused by the ear phones. Please do reply. Anything I could do other than a doctor's appointment.
Avatar n tn For me, it's a deep-rooted ache that develops in mid-spine area while sleeping that will not allow me to go back to sleep upon half-waking while turning over etc. At that point no position helps- only getting up and moving on with the day- which means I am not well rested and the other parts of the body suffer. In bed, the pain is considerably worse at the end of EXhalation (not breathing in) when the lungs are empty- this is when the pain is BAD.
Avatar n tn I've been reading several of the posts regarding numbness while sleeping but, none really resemble my experience. I experience severe pain and numbness in my arms (especially my elbows) and hands when sleeping. Sleeping is difficult as a result. I can sleep as little as 15 minutes before the pain wakes me or sometimes a couple of hours... (this is when the pain is the worst). I usually just change positions and feel relief after a minute or two allowing me to return to sleep.
496771 tn?1209698358 It helped with the itching and burning but the swelling got worse. The swelling moved to my face and eyes. Day 3, I couldn't open my eyes which got better after couple of hours. Stopped taking Atarax after I read the side effects and allergic reaction that could happen are itching and swelling in the face. I am not sure if the swelling in my face was from this medicine or hair color.
Avatar n tn In warm water like in a bathtub or pool, the thick skin on your fingers and toes tends to absorb water and swell. But this swelling doesn’t happen uniformly. Instead, the regions of skin that are most heavily anchored from below will remain lower than the more softened and swollen regions. The result – those temporary wrinkles on your fingers and toes.
Avatar n tn I have been experiancing severe pain and numbness in both arms from shoulders to finger tips while sleeping! It wakes me up no matter what time of day I lie down or how I lay! I have to rub and shake my arms and hands to get any relief and take pain meds! One thing I have found out that helps is heat! I put a long sleeve shirt on or soak in tub or use heating pad. Hope this helps out! I'm going to my nuro doc at the end of month and I will ask him bout it and post what he says.
Avatar f tn About a month after Mayo my progress stopped and pain is increasing. While googling Levothyroxine and finger swelling I come across a forum of 25 women who have what I have. It is an old thread so don't get to ask questions. So I skip my Levothyroxine dose the next morning and by that afternoon pain is down and foot sweating stops.. Skip another dose and by that afternoon I am able to hold a paintbrush and did a little painting on a canvas. Stop taking Levothyroxine for good.
Avatar f tn I've noticed that mine only happen when I lay my head directly on the bed instead of a pillow while sleeping on my side. Mine only happens in the right inner ear. The last time it happened I stuck my finger in my ear to try and lessen the pain...kind of like an inner ear massage (hehe) and when I pulled my finger out there was dark orange, almost liquid ear wax. I know that sounds gross but after doing a bit of research I began thinking it either has to do with 1.) Sinuses or 2.
Avatar m tn A month ago I encountered a hawthorne bush and one of the thorns evidently entered the top of my finger leaving the thorn inside. The following day there was much pain and swelling and my doctor x-rayed the finger which failed to reveal any sign of a broken thorn inside. Finally after a month of discomfort, I squeezed a half-inch thorn which had been lodged in the flesh for more than three weeks. My question is, how might the x-ray have overlooked something this large inside my finger.
Avatar f tn It's important to get an accurate measure of how often your brain "forgets" to breathe vs. how many times you obstruct while sleeping. Central sleep apneas are commonly seen in people with heart failure, which is also associated with leg swelling. Talk to you doctor sooner than later about addressing these issues your issues.
Avatar n tn I am suffering from burning in urethra. My problem started on 25th December, 2008. In the Christmas week I felt some burning in my urethra, I was feeling like stone. And it was burning while I go to urinate and after urination. I was literally feeling like something is there in my urethra and strikes while urination. So, I went to general physician and he wrote me ciprofloxacin 500 mg for 14 day (twice a day). I finished that but I was feeling the same thing as before.
Avatar n tn I'm not sure if I hit my head while sleeping and didn't wake up. How long should I wait for the symptoms to dissapate.
Avatar f tn Mild weight gain even while dieting Extreme fatigue in the morning and throughout the day/napping GERD/Heartburn/chest pain constipation Abdomen swells for no apparent reason Depression forgetfulness/brain fog Neck/jaw pain/swelling/pressure Scratchy voice Very cold feet and hands and sometimes a feeling like ants are biting my feet Endometriosis (2 years ago – cured after one year of birth control) Irregular/heavy periods and menstrual-like cramping in between periods Voice is sometimes hoars
Avatar n tn Application of moisturizers, calamine lotions, oils etc should also help. While sleeping, elevate your legs on at least 3 pillows. Whenever you sit raise your legs to your buttocks level. If you need to stand for long, keep shifting your weight from one leg to another and keep moving your legs. Tight stockings or crepe bandage too can help reduce the swelling. I would again lay emphasis on your consulting a surgeon soon. Please do not delay things further.
454966 tn?1225162361 Please see a doctor soon as untreated sleep apnea can cause damage to the brain, heart and other organs. Apnea can even cause sudden death while sleeping. If you're battling daytime fatigue, you could possibly fall asleep behind the wheel and cause an accident. I hope that your symptoms are temorary and benign. Let us know what happens. Best of luck!
Avatar f tn At first I thought it was just a bruise, but I had no idea where I would have gotten a bruise like that while I was sleeping. It hasn't changed colors like a bruise usually does, and that's what made me look for other things. I am a 24 year old female, and I am overweight.
Avatar f tn It's on the inside, body side, immediately above the crease, and at the time was above as long as the first two joints of my index finger (5 cm) and about as big around as my finger. I can only see it when my arm is outstretched, I can neither see nor feel it when my arm is bent. It is painless, although when it is swollen there can be some general achiness in the area that I assume is due to the swelling.
268698 tn?1222557484 I have always felt this was all tied into that unusual bite at night while I was sleeping but can't find any history on this type of situation. Hope yours has healed in the last 6 mos. Let me know if you have learned anything.
Avatar n tn half-way through treatment, I experienced pain and stiffness in my finger joints along with swelling. This would occur while sleeping and when aroused would be quite painful upon opening or clenching my hand. I also experienced tingling and numbness in my right hand and arm, which was later diagnosed as borderline carpel tunnel syndrome. The pain and stiffness would subside approximatly 1/2 hour upon awakening. It was only as recent as 1 to 2 months ago that the swelling completely subsided.
