Hi, I have been having something wierd going on with two fingers of my right hand since Tuesday of this week. I'm 54, female, in good health. A little background, several years back I had an ultrasound for a stomache issue I was having, and during the procedure the tech said that it looks as if I have osteoarthritis in my right hip. Huh, I thought, I was in my late 40s at the time and pretty active, without any pain. Still no issues there and I'm now a runner, no pain, wouldn't even know I had it. My mom had some arthritis in her hands. So back to Tuesday - I woke up in the morning and the middle and ring finger of the right hand, which were curled (along with the other fingers) while I was sleeping wouldn't straighten up by themselves. I had to use the left hand to straighten them. I've now noticed some weakness, and a wierd, not painful, sensation almost like a band has been wrapped around the topmost joint of both fingers. Now thinking back, there were two episodes over the last couple of weeks where I dropped things from my right hand. Don't know if that's related or me being a clutz.
I googled a bit and self-diagnosed trigger finger. I mentioned it to the nurse at work and she said with trigger finger, the finger actually shots back into place. That's not happening. She suggested it might be arthritis.
I realize I should see a doctor, but want to have a little more time to see what happens first. Does anyone have any ideas, or online sources that I could look at?
Thanks in advance!
Hi, Just joined the group, we have a 6 year old, soon to be 7, he is very intelligent but extremely disruptive at school and at home.

I can sum up my story fast: I am 38 and the single breadwinner of the family as a woman. I became pregnant with our third child and we decided to move from CT to Idaho where my soon to be Ex's parent's live for extra support (things were not great then). However, my job requires extensive national travel and after getting back to work after my short maternity, I realized that Idaho is very...
