My wrist had an element of stiffness for a while in the early days which was MS related so it can happen.
Arthritis comes with a lot more pain, even with small movements.
The more common symptom involves nerves going down the arm to the fingers. There are 2 separate nerves, one going to your little and ring fingers and the other to your index and middle fingers. When it's a MS nerve issue you'll have sensation issues in 2 fingers at a time.
You're unlikely to have arthritis unless you've previously injured yourself in the area you're taking about.
My left hand has started tingling and it feels like something is tickling my fingers. Weird.
I'm going to have to type questions down that I want to ask my doctor!I am right handed and have basically lost the use of my right hand. My thumbs work good but my index finger has no coordination and my middle finger,ring finger and pinky are just there.if I hold my hand out straight those 3fingers bend down towards the ground instead of up at the knuckle joints. You can look at my hand and see that it's painful 💔
Thanks for responding. It has been fine for a bit now but will be back I am sure. So many different ways MS can show up.
I have extreme pain from the thumb to the wrist on both hands. The left hand is the one with the most pain. It's turned into arthritis, osteopenia or osteoarthritis. I say this because depending where you point on my body, it will have one of these three.
