Swollen joints are not typically part of ANS dysfunction. Some people do get joint aches and pains (I'm one of them), and some also get swollen glands/lymph nodes. You should probably get checked by your doctor as there are a number of things that can cause joint swelling, including arhtritis, lyme disease, infections, injury, etc.

I didn't really have trouble with this until the past few months. Turns out that milk or milk-based products cause my hands to become stiff and sore and feel fat, adn eventually it spreads to my feet, then knees and hips. It took a while after discontinuing the milk, but now the pain is gone unless I slip up and again consume it.

Just something for you to consider.
