Finger joint inflammation

Common Questions and Answers about Finger joint inflammation


Avatar n tn But when I am not having flare up i have constant very mild tenderness in my hands and shoulder. My chiropractor thinks it could be mild joint inflammation. Does this kind of achey pain sound like inflammation? If so what should I do to prevent flareups? Any other advice please?
Avatar f tn Since it's affecting your musculo-skeletal system, you are getting painful nodules on your knuckles, due to the joint inflammation resulting into swelling and arthritis. If you need any more information, please let me know, so that i can guide you better.
Avatar n tn It could be that the swelling just began with the finger. Other possibilities are arthritis-rheumatoid, injury, inflammation of the sac of joint, finger *****, insect bite, allergy or contact dermatitis to something, tendon injury or inflammation, clot in blood vessel, infection of the skin or pulp of the finger etc. I think you should discuss these possibilities with your doctor. It is difficult to comment beyond this without examining. Take care!
Avatar n tn When i woke up, it's stiffer than I think it should be and there is a ring of swelling around the joint, especially around the upper part of the joint. I'm fairly confident that the bones aren't broken. I am just worried about a joint injury. Should the swelling form a ring around the knuckle?
Avatar f tn For months and months I've been having minor pain in the smallest joint on my fourth finger on my right hand. Because I work seven days a week during the school year, I never saw the doctor. But it started getting worse. It hurts, if my fist is closed, to bump the knuckle from above. It also hurts to stretch my fingers out (laying flat is okay, but if I try to stretch them at all, it hurts).
Avatar m tn tumor appears at the joint between 2nd finger and third finger, grow up very fast, now it is very painful. It is pressing my joint. almost 2cm x2cm. Is it malign ?
Avatar n tn Hello, I would like to gain insight to causes, treatments and remedies of joint pain and swelling (currently wrists, elbows and shoulder). I understand it may appear similar to what arthritis suffers experience, however, long term degeneration of joints and collagen from diabetes may be responsible for the pain and swelling. Can the pain and swelling be reversed / averted? Can flexibility and mobility lost from swelling be regained? Can swelling be eliminated? - How?
Avatar m tn My right hand middle finger joint (the one between the first and second phalanges seens to dislocate or move out of place when I press it with my thumb. It seens to pop although I can´t hear any sound, unless I´m holding it very close to my ears. It occurs when I press the left side of the joint ( the one closest to my index finger) using my thumb. I don´t know if it is the bone or some kind of ligament or tendon that is actually moving, but I can fell something moves out of place.
Avatar f tn Yesterday I fell while hiking and broke my finger (right hand ring finger) Went to the ER got an x-ray that showed the break in-between the knuckle and the last joint on the finger. They gave me a referal to an ortho but he is out of town for a couple of weeks, so they said to call my Dr to get a referal for an ortho as soon as possible. The finger is severally swollen, bruising bad and I can't move it up or down.
Avatar n tn Other possibilities are arthritis-rheumatoid, injury, inflammation of the sac of joint, finger prick, insect bite, allergy or contact dermatitis to something, tendon injury or inflammation, clot in blood vessel, infection of the skin or pulp of the finger etc. I think you should discuss these possibilities with your doctor. It is difficult to comment beyond this without examining. Take care!
Avatar m tn I was on it long term meaning 10 years for pouchitis for j-pouch and now I have a lot of inflammation in my finger joints and who knows where else.
Avatar f tn any amount of swelling in a small joint such as a finger joint can cause quite a bit of discomfort. It sounds like you "jammed" the joint(s). It can take a long time to resolve. Like 6-9 months. You could try soaking it in hot water to loosen things up and try to pull and put tension on the finger to loosen up the joint. Pull the finger slowly, steadily, and gently straight out. I have found this can help loosen it up and relieve some pressure in the joint.
Avatar n tn It is also possible that you have infection, inflammation of the knuckle joint. It can also be a soft tissue injury. An X-ray is required to decide the course of treatment. Please consult an orthopedic specialist. Meanwhile cold compress and anti-inflammatory may help control pain and swelling. Hope this helps. Take care!
1024532 tn?1380061952 I have been experiencing swollen joints in right hand the index and middle finger are also swollen. I have also a stiff jaw and ankles are weak. I also woke up with a stiff neck. I have been tested for RA and thyroid. Gave me a shot in joint of cortizone and I had bad reactions and still swollen and red. I went to ER Monday and they gave me Vicodin for pain. Has anyone else had similar symptons and still negative results on blood work for rhmeutoid arthritis? Any help would be appreciated.
Avatar n tn I am a 37 year old mum of 1 (13) I was diagnosed with 3 spinal compression fractures and oesteporosis 3 years ago, over the last 6 months i have suffered increasing joint stiffness and pain, to the extent where I can no longer turn a key in the lock or lift a kettle to make a drink single handed.
Avatar m tn It seems you have some joint inflammation problem which can be arthritis, bursitis, synovitis (inflammation of synovial fluid in the joint) which usually becomes symptomatic during any activity/sitting. In addition, your high body weight may aggravate your symptoms. I would advise CT or MRI scan of the joint to rule out such inflammatory condition with the help of an orthopedician.
4982655 tn?1361984327 Arthritis or inflammation of joint that moves from joint to joint (migratory) can be due to Hepatitis B, Hepatitis C, rheumatic fever, SLE, HIV, Lyme’s disease, sarcoidosis, Whipple’s disease, Henoch-Schnlein Purpura, bacterial endocarditis and gonoccoccal arthritis. Hashimotos thyroidits is another possibility. It can also be fibromyalgia and or chronic fatigue syndrome. Since it started with great toe it can also be gout. At times an infection can trigger reactive arthritis.
284190 tn?1268329733 It is very common in adults older than 45 and can cause joint pain. Joint pain may also be caused by bursitis (inflammation of the bursae). The bursae are fluid-filled sacs that cushion and pad bony prominences, allowing muscles and tendons to move freely over the bone. For nonarthritis joint pain, both rest and exercise are important. Warm baths, massage, and stretching exercises should be used as frequently as possible. Anti-inflammatory medications may help relieve pain and swelling.
Avatar f tn Now he is still experiencing extreme joint pain in his hip and has swelling of a finger joint and has injured his knee somehow without his knowledge. He has gone from a strong fit man to someone who hobbles around in less than 4 months. Is the Lipitor doing damage to his joints as well as causing pain? Is there any other medication with less side effects?
Avatar n tn Hello, I recently woke from a bad night's rest just to find that I have a sore on my left pointer finger. Its mid-point on my finger preventing me from bending it all the way. When I attempt to bend my finger it hurts like crazy, this feels almost like a hair bump on the inside of my hand. Very uncomfortable. This bump doesn't have a head to it like other bumps I've experienced in the past.
Avatar f tn Hi-- I hit the outside edge between knuckle and first joint of my pinky finger against a hard object about a month ago. (I tried to vigorously shoo my dog out of the kitchen and whacked my hand on the tile counter) It was painful but never showed obvious (to me) sign of breakage. I had inflammation, pain, a small amount of bruising (I don't bruise easily) and it as been tender to the touch ever since.
Avatar n tn I think, since I'm so hypermobile and have such lax joints, that made the joint even LESS stable. It's like my ligaments/tendons are too loose to hold my joints together. I feel like I'm literally falling apart... I'm in constant pain, stabbing, burning, grinding. Sometimes it feels like someone stuck a knife in between my joints and won't take it out. At this very moment, I feel like I want to rip my head off and set it back on the way it’s supposed to be!
Avatar n tn Of course, I've had the usual side effects (dryness, depression, lethargy.) My main problem now is severe joint pain. I lift weights 5x per week. I don't want to stop working out, but my right elbow and both shoulders are killing me! Has anyone had experience with this and can you recommend medicine or treatment for the joint pain? I employ high intensity training (low reps, hight weight) but can change my lifting to lighter weight, with higher weights. But I can not stop lifting.
Avatar m tn I am now also feeling pain and stiffness in my right pinky finger. I am a 35 male and have been exercising 3 to 4 days a week until the neck pain started. I have Crohn's and take Humira injections. Any idea if this is a side effect to the injections or if this is something else.
Avatar n tn NOT including dietary zinc from food, I was getting 65 mg of zinc/day. (began 1 month before finger/joint pain set in.) My research showed that much zinc per day was WAYYYY too much and could create a copper deficiency. One symptom of copper deficiency is joint pain. 1.) Could my joint pain be caused by a copper deficiency? 2.) If not a copper deficiency, could it be the Elmiron? 3.) Could the IC and DIP pain be related (ie something like Fibromyalgia)? 4.
7562787 tn?1392206272 Hi. I have been reading/hearing about gluten allergy lately. I myself have stopped eating all grains except for corn tortillas. Yeah, I know, they are made from GMO corn - but since I can't eat bread and cereal - well, I have to eat something besides meat, fruits and vegetables. Anyway, seems that a gluten allergy can cause lots of symptoms, including dementia, fatigue, fainting, pain, and most of all an unexplained inflammation!
