Clicky locky fingers!

Hello, I noticed that there are a few pretty old posts on this topic, but just wondering if anyone found a solution to the clicky fingers? Some of my fingers were starting to deform, and I was advised to wear finger splints. It has been about 3 months since I started wearing these splints. My fingers wouldn't click and lock as much before that. But now they seem to lock in a straightened position, and I have to unlock the joint with my other hand to make it bend again. It scares me because I wonder if someday I just won't be able to unlock the finger and it will be stuck like that forever! Any advice on how to reduce the clicking and locking?

I had my orthopedic doctor put a shot it my hand and it stopped my finger from locking and clicking. I had the shot over a year ago.

High, ampretty ne to the RA community, I don't know anybody else with this so i joined the NRAS to make to friends and companions, such a lonely world i am facing out here now, a recent MRI scan showed a lumbar cavity in my lower back, an asymmetrical spine apparently, now constant headaches, pains in hip joints and upper right arm seem to get worse every day, tiredness, the list goes on, if you are local to me, i live in Turnpike Lane North london, maybe we can get together first hand and experience things together. How about it?
