Re: finger won't bend...

I was diagnosed with CREST Syndrone 4 years ago but since the disease has progressed, the symptoms are unlike CREST. Instead of them slowly curling, my fingers won't bend. In Jan. '08. I was reaching for something and I felt my left hand snap and suddenly none of the fingers would bend. They've been like that ever since. I can feel hard lumps in the palms of both hands. This is very debilitating. I have been treated since '04 by the Rhuematologist who diagnosed me with CREST. Any advise?
