Automatic finger twisting
My mother has a weird problem when a finger automatically twists and doesn't return to it's normal position. Especially happens when the fingers are moving. To get it back to the normal position, very slowly the finger has to be pushed back to its initial position and it is extremely painful.

Trigger finger usually is treated by excising the nodule made in tendon sheath,but sometimes it gets dissolved by injecting steroid in it.If she is diabetic,blood sugar level will have to be controlled before injection or surgery.God bless.
