MightyMouse Posted October 8, 2007 Report Share Posted October 8, 2007 Hi all,Three days ago, the middle joint of my middle finger on my dominant hand became swollen and warm--and began to hurt quite a bit to move it. Now I have 2 other joints on the same hand but different fingers that have joined in the swelling and pain. Heat doesn't seem to help, nor does ice. Took some naproxen (oy, my tummy is really in for it--took some last week too for my neck/back) which helped a little bit. The skin around the three joints is taught from the swelling.Trying to figure out what the heck is going on; I will head to my doctor asap, but wondering if this is arthritis? Never had this happen before except to my knees, and for those, it was always from overuse when I was still running regularly. Anyone get this as an autonomic problem rather than autoimmune?Nina Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
