For the last couple of weeks I have suffered with pain in the first joints (closest to my nails) of both index fingers, I actually thought I had fractured my right finger as it was so painful. It started in my right hand and now both hands. I am also suffering with general pains in my hands and wrists and excruciating pain in my neck/shoulders.
I am 38 and my mum has severe arthritis of her knees.
I will be at the GP at 8am tomorrow morning to book an appointment.
I have made excuses for my joint stiffness for the last 18 months but so many joints now affected I need to get an expert opinion.
