The feeling of tightness and fluid in the hands is something I deal with every morning. It does ease up as the day goes on yet I still have a fullness or tightness even before I go to bed at night.

As for the legs, yes, I get joint pains in my hips, knees, ankles, even my toes.

I just think it is par for the course with this lovely disease.

Sometimes if it is bad a warm bath helps me and sometimes I have to double up on meds.

Sorry your having a day with pain. I hope it eases up for you. Do you take anything for inflammation? Maybe a couple of Advil, Motrin, etc...may do the trick.

Yeah a nice bath might do the trick elisabeth. I like the old Radox bath salts but they can be a bit harsh on the skin. Some porraige in a bag run under the tap is nice if you have sensitive skin :hug:

Hiya, yes I have sore tight hands most mornings, sometimes in ankles and knees too.. it usually eases off over the day unless it is because I overdid it the day before and its pay back day!! My body feels as if its made up of memory foam.. anything I work too much today... it remembers and pays me back handsomely the next day or so... you might find a hot shower helpful if you don't have a bath or heat pads can help too sometimes... otherwise its anti inflammatories if its bad and plod through with it..:(
