Hi all, my PsA affects all of my joints but it's the worst in my fingers. I've noticed in this last year that it's gotten especially bad in the morning. I can barely move my hands and get ready in the morning because of it. Is there anything we can do to ease the stiffness and pain right after waking up?

Hi everyone, how are you?
Do you ever experience stiffness in your joints in the morning? Does it make it hard for you to complete daily tasks? How do you cope with it? Is there anything that makes it better?

To relieve my hands, I usually alternate hot and cold and I do a lot of massage with the milking method.

@Courtney_J Hello Everyone,
Nothing helps me so I just relax and wait it out. It usually last for about 2 hours. I tried to make appointments for mid-morning .I take Humria it helps my psoriasis tremendously but not my R A.
