I have two fingers and one toe swelled for two years now. I'v been to 3 doctors and they don't know why. arthritis doctor says I have Psoriatic arthritis but when he did blood work it says I don't have it. My famliy doctor doesn't know he ran all kind of blood work my liver inzines are up. went to a new famliy doctor she said she didn't know and told me maybe the arthritis doctor is right. so I when back to my old doctor and had him run a blood test for Psoriatic arthritis and what ever he wanted and you guess right nothing. I'm running out of option here please if anyone can help. Thank you for your time..............................Garry

  • Have your doctor do a blood test to check for Hemochromatosis (Excessive iron in your blood). The iron collects in various joints, but particularly in fingers one and two (pointer and middle). Hemochromatosis also causes fatigue and weakness.
