    My index fingers on both hands are bending, and I can't straighten them anymore. They lock up from time to time, and they are very painful when they unlock.

    Hi, Marilyn,

     

    I am not a doctor and can't diagnose you, but that sounds like trigger finger.  I have the same thing on both little fingers.  The doctor says he can fix it with a fifteen minute operation, but I haven't done it.  In my case, he says he will snip the tendon sheath.  Have you seen an orthopedic doctor?

     

    Peace,
