Good Morning.

I am newly diagnosed with this condition after many months of random aches and pains. Prior to this diagnosis II was a fit and active person. I was put on a short course of steroids for a month by a private rheumatologist but now waiting for an NHS appointment. The main issue is my hands atm. They feel stiff and useless in the morning but a little better in the afternoon and evening. Can anyone suggest exercises or advice for this? Thank you in advamce.
