Identify Trigger Finger Symptoms

Stiffness in Finger Resulting in Discomfort

If your fingers frequently become stiff and ache or throb, these are generally early warning signs that your tendons are enduring too much. Stiffness is nearly always associated with inflammation, and in this case inflammation of the tendons. While some finger and hand stiffness comes with age or arthritic conditions, excessive prominence should be examined by a physician.

Noticeable Noise When Moving Finger

The most telltale sign of trigger finger symptoms is the clicking or popping sound that a stiff finger makes when trying to move that digit. When the tendons swell, they will struggle to adequately perform in the sheath. This results in a popping or clicking sound as the tendons are forced to expand and contract.

Tender and Sensitive Joints

Sensitive joints are common with old age and can be further instigated by weather patterns and pressure in the air. When experiencing these symptoms, don’t just write them off as age telling you that your hands and fingers hurt. Get an examination to be sure that the tendons have not been compromised.

Finger Locks Up or Stays Bent

The surest sign that you should seek medical advice are locked fingers that remain bent in the same position. This is typically the result of fully inflamed tendons and connective tissues. The tendons have become so inflamed, in fact, that they are barely able to pass through the sheath. Such symptoms should involve an immediate trip to see your hand doctor.
