for about the last 2 year ive had pain in both my hands in all teh joints except my thums and is worse in my right hand. i also have mild swelling in the joints and is a lot worse in winter and is very very painful with even the slight knock on anything. ive been for an exray at the hospital and they say its not arthritis. ive been to my docter twice since then and i get fobbed off and basically told to live with it. does any one know anything it could be that i can look into and what my corse it.

thanks mark

  • thanks for the replys i should have told you i`m only 20 is that not a bit young to have arthritis. they are also a little stiff. havent noticed any redness or burning sensation. do you think i should try another doctor as mine does not seem to be taking it a serious as i am. i work repairing crashed cars so i use my hands all day and this makes it very diffcult. thanks mark

  • You could have aform of arthritis,which is why I suggested a panel of arthritis bloodwork,no matter that you're just 20.:)
