Hello. I'm a new member. My knuckles are becoming swollen on one hand - no pain - and my fingers beginning to bend. Any suggestions on how to help slow down this unsightly process?

    Hi there and welcome from me burleybrown :)

    There are conditions which can cause fingers to bend inwards
    My Ex-MIL had this one:


    She has had steroid injections into them 3 times now with really good results, although surgery is also an option I think.

    In your shoes I would visit my GP.

    Let us know how you get on if you can I hope it's fixable for you
