Hi, I'm 21 years old and suffering with joint pain, as well as muscular pain and tenderness. What's concerning me most is the swelling, which isn't concurent with Fibromyalgia (which I've been told I have). I get a swollen neck, hands, knees and feet. However, this doesn't seem to explain my joint pain nor my stiffness. (I'm awaiting blood test results to rule out any other conditions.) My fingers kind-of lock as do my hips. Could it be arthritis? I've been examined by a rheumatologist. Would/should it have been picked up by him IF it's arthritis?
