I've been noticing this more and more the past year now. Every morning when I wake up not only do I hurt extremely bad in both my neck and low back where I've had spine surgeries but I also am noticing now my fingers right around the kunckles and the base of each individual finger to the hand are very painful and hurt to move. I also notice it in my toes primarily around the knuckles as well. My feet always hurt and are very tender & painful to even massage but it feels good to massage them of course how ever the pain don't stop! I have feeling I'm literally ate up with severe arthritis :( I have noticed it don't matter if it's 2 hours or 3-4 hours upon waking up they are very painful to bend,move and massage around the knuckles.
I did work in the oilfield industry and also building homes industry hanging sheetrock for many years before I was injured. I'm 48 now and my body feels like it must be 80.. I have been diagnosed with fibromyalgia but are the finger knuckle joints also affected ? I'm just wondering what else it could be?
