I am a 40 yrs old lady. I feel pain in my finger joints and also my back is stiff every morning I wake up. Infact I am not using pillow from last couple of months.

first of all u r talking of hand fingers or foot. It can be rheumatoid arthritis or gout. For that u have to consult near by physiotherapist asap. stiffness in back is due to muscle weakness of back. For that also u have to consult good physiotherapist. pillow is necessary for your cervical posture. Don't avoid pillow, but it should not b very thick. Thank you.
