This flared up about a month and a half ago, and is in the middle joint of my right index finger
, the PIP joint. It has gone through cycles of being almost normal to....like today- more swollen
and painful than ever. The joint is tight, painful, and has a good amount of fluid over the knuckle. It is a sausage-like finger now. Warming it and slowly working it get some movement back for the day. There seems no rhyme or reason for what flares it up.
