Trigger Finger

Have had a number of occasions since summer where all fingers or just my pointy finger (not the technical term) locks uncomfortably when I try to straighten it and wont straighten without using my other hand to push it flat. After a long break of several weeks it has started to happen again, first to left hand when adjusting my zip and then a couple of days later, and for the first time to my right finger as I finished sliding a door bolt. Anybody else get this and in both hands and is it associated with MS?

Tbh, I don’t have a clue! Could it be spasms (in which case, yes, it could happen in MS)?

If it is “normal” trigger finger then I think that is to do with tendons rather than nerves in which case it would be unlikely to be MS. Could be talking rubbish though!!!
