Hi Anon

Thanks for your post.

There could be several issues here.

One is an injury but if it's both hands, that's unlikely. But is this possible do you think?

What do you do for a living? You may have carpal tunnel syndrome which is an injury due to repetitive motions - it  includes stiffness, pain, and numbing. Do you use your hands on a constant basis, doing the same thing?

You may want to be tested for R.A. - rheumatoid arthritis. Do you notice any swelling at all? Is this pain worse at certain times of the day or night? 

Please let us know more and we can help you further!
