I was wondering if anyone out there could help. My husband is 41 years old and has been suffering from muscle pain and ankle swelling for almost a year now. It originally started out as joint pain only in his ankles and knees, but now it has manifested itself to his muscles all over his body and his ankles continue to swell. He is African American and has no family history of arthritis or any other condition that would make any sense. And, we currently don't have insurance so he's not willing to see a doctor right now. He has been taking Advil for pain, but that has also stopped working for him. Any thoughts out there? I would appreciate any help! Thanks
