Stiffness in the joints is a common symptom of arthritis. Examination by your healthcare provider and perhaps some blood tests may be helpful, but the exam is the first and most important step.
It is very possible that the cause of stiff hands is some type of arthritis, but you should see a rheumatologist to determine the cause. The treatment for this condition will vary, depending on the cause of the stiffness.
