I have intense pain in my middle finger,right at the middle joint. It started overnight two and a half weeks ago. Im a 45 year old male,with a reasonable diet,nonsmoker,nondrinker,good weight,no family history etc.
It is very painful in the morning for 10 minutes--then better through the day. And I seem to be even more senstive to the cold and depressed. I cannot bend that finger due to the pain,buttoning my shirt is difficult,pulling off gloves difficult. I have a cold and wet job in a cooled warehouse and was raised in the cold wet Scottish Highlands. Im waiting and waiting for various tests to come back. I have a chance to go to a hot dryish climate near the equator. Should I go?
and WHAT DO I HAVE?
