Hi I am suffering from joint pain mainly in my fingers and toes. About two years ago I started noticing constant discomfort in my fingers and toes (mainly my middle and ring finger diggits) and it is becoming worse. At the same time my joints started hurting I became very lactose intolerant. By very I mean some people can switch to soy products, but my body can't seem to tell the difference. I have been to many doctors who just send me to get the same tests done and find nothing new. I found out I am vitamin b12 deficient. So I take weekly injections, which help with the joint pain for a couple days but doesn't help for the rest of the week, nor my other side affects. I think the lactose intolerance, and the b12 deficiency are tied together and might be a sign to something else. But the doctors I've been to don't do much for me, and don't listen. I'm only getting worse pain as time goes on and starting to loose faith in my doctors. So I am hoping someone can help me. I'm a male in my 20's and eat well, I'm fit, and try to stay healthy. Thanks for your time and giving me some advice and hope.
