I've had arthritis in my thumb joints for many years and it's been an irritation more than anything. I think I've been lucky that it's not worse. However, recently - and quite suddenly, it seems to have started in my left wrist and is quite painful. Fortunately, I'm right handed.

I'm not surprised that it's spreading, I sort of expect it to, unfortunately, but I'm wondering why it would seemingly suddenly start to affect another joint?
