Just wondered if anyone could help? About three months ago my middle finger's second joint on my left hand became really sore and very stiff (especially in the morning). I had to use Voltarol to take the discomfort away and noticed that it was swollen and very sore to touch (but not full of fluid). Then it settled after a few weeks and I hoped it was just a random thing.
Then about three weeks ago a couple of finger joints on my right hand have started to do the same thing and I am waking at night with pain and a lot of stiffness. In the morning it is as if they are 'stuck' in the same position and after a little while they come back to life (although remain sore throughout the day).
Do you think it could be the start of a kind of Arthritis? Not sure if I should go to my doctor or just buy some joint vitamins or if anyone can help shed light? I eat really well and look after myself, take exercise and starflower and fish oil supplements.
