For 6 weeks now the middle joints on the fingers of both hands have been swollen and extremely tender. I cannot knock on a door and it hurts if I accidentally touch a cupboard door with them. They are also stiff but mainly in my right hand. My thumbs and little fingers are unaffected. I have osteoarthritis in my big toes and my gp says that that is what is wrong with my fingers.
I am now allergic to nsaids and have been prescribed co-dydramol but it doesn't seem to be doing much. I am also so tired but I don't know if that is because this is starting to get me down.
Does anyone have any advice?
