sometimes when i first wake up my hands are swollen for a few hours. i don't lay on my hands or my arms while i sleep. this has happened for as long as i can remember. does this happen to anyone else? what causes it?
Which reminds me... when I wake up my hands and feet have a slightly sticky, (extremely slightly) itchy, uncomfortable sensation. But there's nothing I can think of that would cause it. (And for those of you with dirty minds, it's not bodily fluids of that type either).Any ideas what causes it?
Firstly, i would not accept a medical diagnosis from an internet forum. Even if it came from someone as knowlegable and trained as our very own Dr Chris. I would seek proper medical advice from your own doctor, anyone can give a multitue of ailments from a given sympton but only your doctor knows you, your history and such matters.If you have had this problem for such a long time, i would definately be seeking medical advice.
I'd like to agree 100% with you, paul.fr.
But the real world is sometime different and things happen in an unpredictable fashion. Shortly, I cannot exclude that an Internet diagnosis made by Chris someday, somehow will save one or two lives.Times are changing my friend.Take careikodP.S.I know the rules, but I also know that in particular emergency cases where distance is a problem, good doctors can make proper diagnoses and suggest treatments by phone.No difference with this new way to communicate.Internet it's actually much, much better!
I forgot to mention an example of telephonediagnosis posted some days ago (as a joke!): http://www.thenakedscientists.com/forum/index.php?topic=7385.0
You know what House would say? LOL.. does anyone actually watch House.. well he would suggest Lupus because he always suggests Lupus. Of course for him it never actually is although Lupus does in fact cause swollen fingers in the morning although they are usually stiff and slightly painful at the same time.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0qNBOoDiG0w
