I'm a 28 year old female.. I have been having joint pain that concerns me but because of my high deductible with insurance I don't go to the doctor unless it's absolutely necessary. About 5 weeks ago my right shoulder started hurting, a few days later my left shoulder was hurting too.. I assumed i was sleeping wrong.. the pain hasn't gone away.. about a week ago I woke up with both knees hurting, I can't squat down to pick up anything without pain and if I do its hard to get back up.. within a couple days I woke up with both hands, wrists, and elbows hurting and my fingers and wrists are tight feeling.. like the feeling i had when i was pregnant and holding fluid, but for the most part there is no visible swelling.. all of my fingers hurt, but my index finger on both hands is the worst and the knuckle at the base of both pinky fingers. The base of both thumbs and my wrists are pretty bad too. It's hard to open door knobs, soda cans, etc.. it hurts to pick up my 2 yr old and some nights I can barely pull the covers over me in bed. I feel like something is wrong but but of all the joints hurting me, only my index fingers look a little swollen and are slightly tender.. there is no redness or tenderness in any other joints, they only hurt when I move them. I'm just looking for opinions as to whether I should go on in to the doctor or wait and see if it gets worse since it's not an unbearable pain and hardly any swelling. Any input is appreciated.. thanks in advance.
