Hello, Anon. Thank you for posting.

Hand cramps can be extremely uncomfortable and either sporadic or chronic. When your hand cramps up, you may have difficulty making a fist or bringing your fingers together. You might experience cramping in other parts of your body as well. While hand cramping isn’t dangerous in and of itself, it may be a sign of a larger issue when other symptoms are present.

The following are only a few of the possible reasons for hand cramps. Contact your doctor for more information.

Low magnesium
Poor circulation, over-use or repetitive motions
Rheumatoid arthritis
