Please can someone help me, I am now 34 years old and still suffering with a rare joint inflamation. Since i was 18 i noticed days when my finger lobes would get swollen at the centre. this would come about only if i used the fingers with a little force or maybe just by knocking on someones door.

But it would effect only one finger at a time. over the years i have noticed that this has been happening to most of my joints but most often the fingers, heels and knees , Never two joints at the same time. As i am getting older there seems to be more frequent occurrances. I sometimes cannot put my heel down on the floor it hurts so bad. The heel gets inflammed just by walking more than a kilometre or by a little bit of runing or even if i just jumped a small stair or two. Never two heels at the same time!

I cry with pain. i have seen many doctors and had my uric acid checked many times but all results were fine.

What could this be ? Please help me, My number is 0726110101 or carlossone2003@yahoo.com.
