DrThomasMd :

That is interesting

JACUSTOMER-vcolzq5b- :

Please asker

DrThomasMd :

However you still need to have the other problems checked

DrThomasMd :

in some people certain foods aggravate inflammation

DrThomasMd :

and you might have this provlem

DrThomasMd :

You should have an ultrasound or MRI of the fingers as these would pick up early arthritis

DrThomasMd :

going to a nutrient dense anti-inflammatory diet will help

DrThomasMd :

Find this in the book called EAT TO LIVE by Dr. Joel Fuhrman

DrThomasMd :

good luck

DrThomasMd :

You doc can run a lab test called a CRP to see if you have inflammation

DrThomasMd :

let me know if you have further questions
