Have Medical Questions? Ask a Doctor Online!
Hello! My name is***** to JustAnswer. I'm a Consultant Rheumatologist and I am reviewing your question now, and will post back with your reply momentarily.
Sorry to hear about your health
This seems like an inflammatory arthritis
The reason could be a viral infection or more chronic arthritis like rheumatoid arthritis or a seronegative arthropathy
You should start taking an anti inflammatory like advil and make an appointment with your doctor for examination
You should have an ESR/CRP,Rheumatoid factor,anti-CCP antibodies and imaging of the hands to establish a diagnosis
Feel free to ask if you require any further clarification
If you are satisfied then do leave a POSITIVE RATING (preferably 5 stars) so that I may be credited for my work
