hi, im 27 years old and my right hand has been getting worse over the last few months,
my fingers are so still that i cant bend them properly and when i make a fist and open it out as fast as i can it kind of does it in stages as if my joints need oiling.
my knuckles swell up really bad to they dont really hurt but they ache a lot,
my left hand also does it but not as bad as my right.
i can hardley type thi sbecause it is aching so much, does any one know what this could be?
oh also my feet joints grind together as do my shoulder blade!

  • Probably arthritis, why haven't you had it checked out yet if it causes you so much trouble?
