Why does my finger joint hurt

Common Questions and Answers about Why does my finger joint hurt


Avatar f tn Are you diabetic? My brother has had two trigger fingers and was told it's a complication of his diabetes. Since hcv can bring on diabetes, you might want to check that out. And don't check it with a fasting blood sugar. You can have high blood sugars after meals for years before your fasting reading indicates any problem. Best to eat a carb laden meal and then test.

Avatar f tn I was cronically tired and was progressively mentally less sharp. My feet hurt and my hands and neck hert it has go to the point that I have had to give up my job. All the time I was going to my doctor and giving the symptoms to him. He insisted that I had arthritis Finally a friend suggested that I look up the side effects of lipitor on the net. It was all there and I had more than half of the symptoms on the list, severly.
284190 tn?1268329733 I have type 2 diabetes, heart disease, and am moridly obese. I am still active and my job does consist of standing and working with my arms so I would really love some help on which to turn.
Avatar m tn the pain was not constant, but i feel it periodelically. Besides that finger, more fingers started to hurt, my wirsts were mildly hurting and had 1 or two episodes or elbow pain. And of course the musles in my forearm (under the elbow) started huring. To top it all of I felt abdominal pain in the bottow left and right quadrant. I did a normal blood test (no hiv, cause i wasn't concerned at that moment), and the result was that my monocyte count was higher than normal, suggesting an infection.
Avatar n tn Its been 5 months and now every joint in my body hurts including my wrists. when i say every joint i mean my ankles, knees, shoulders, elbows, pelvis, and even my back. no type of acne is worth immobility. Theyve done every test you could imagine. ive endured the radiation equivelant to 50,000 x-rays, and take almost every blood test you could imagine. None of my 6 doctors can figure it out. Stay away from this drug.
745975 tn?1258964522 I'm noticing pain my my wrists, neck, lower back and in my shin bones, and radiates up my leg and into my pelvis. This is not constant, just dull achy pain that i notice way more at night when i'm laying in bed. i just want to know how the joint pain started for most of you. Was it all at once, or did it come on slowly...?
Avatar n tn It's been one year, almost to the date, since I began this forum...and still no change for the better. I did find it very encouraging though to see that I'm not CRAZY like all the doctors would like to believe, and that other people are also experiencing these bizarre symptoms. It has begun to "spread" to my hands and hips now. My finger joints hurt when I'm using them in a repetitive manner for a period of time. But they also hurt more when it rains or when cold weather sets in.
Avatar n tn its the constant, if not painful joint cracking in almost all my joints. At my age it seems very uncommon and considering the other symptoms (fasciculations, occasional feelings of muscle twitching, carpel tunnelesque wrist and lower arm stiffness and occasional pain) I'm left wondering if they could be connected...
Avatar n tn I fractured my proximal phalanx left small finger on 07/24/08. The break was so bad, that my finger bend down, and so far over, that it could touch my middle finger with it. The break is apparently "one of the worst" places to break the finger. the break required surgery, including the insertion of 2 K-wires .035 (aka-pins). My recommendation to all of you is to research your hand surgeon before allowing them to perform the procedure.
568659 tn?1256143582 My first pregnancy was by far my easiest. My other two got more and more painful. By the end of my last pregnancy, I hurt all over and it hurt to walk. Sometimes I couldn't walk. My carpal tunnel gets worse also, and my hands and arms always fell asleep. Good luck on the external version! When my first was breech, I opted not to have it done. I just went with the c-section. I can't remember all the reasons I chose not to, but it was after having a long talk with my doctor.
Avatar f tn and I am desperately trying to figure out why I continue to break out in hives and have joint pain in my elbows, feet, hands and legs. I too started breaking out in hives after taking the antibotic Solodyn for acne. After a trip to the ER, it was assumed that I had an alergic reaction to the medicine. I stopped taking the medicine after only 3 weeks and needless to say, I am still breaking out in hives and have joint pain. I have been tested for allergies and that was negative.
476246 tn?1418874514 The pain, swelling and heat in my right index finger-big joint at the bottom, is what lead to my being diagnosed with Hep C. My primary sent me to the RA doc because my RA factor was slightyly elevated. Doing further blood work, the hep was found. My feet are also giving me trouble. I am just now able to walk comfortably after 16 weeks of dealing with plantar fascaitis (sp). And a bone spur. I am not taking any meds for either.
436713 tn?1408888330 Since then, I have developed bizarre joint pain in my feet, knees, wrist, fingers.. etc. Some days my left knee and right finger will hurt.. some days my wrist... it seems to move around, and doesn't necessarily occur on both sides of my body. I also have general fatigue, low libido, and my appetite seems to have faded. I'm 5'6 and 128 pounds and have a lot of muscle. (I lift weights and generally feel strong, but tired..) Definitely not having weight gain...
915277 tn?1252576713 My hands have been swollen and my fingers hurt pretty bad, especially both my index fingers at the first joint just past the nail, also on that joint is a blister-like bump that is very noticeable and extremely painful. What are these blister-like bumps and are they related to Osteoarthritis or Rheumatoid?? I have been diagnosed with Osteo in my knee...is it possible to have both osteo and rheumatoid?? I'd appreciate any comments and thanks in advance...
Avatar f tn Thank you for your response, Back in December and January, I had an EEG because of my migraines and seizures, I was put on Topamax for both, I told my Dr then about the burning in my head, the feeling of bugs or like bugs running under my skull, the intense pressure, the balance issues, my left pinky and ring finger has been tingly and numb since October, it's going to my left foot now, but no one knows. I was supposed to go to a 24 hour EEG, but that got cancelled due to me moving.
Avatar n tn I mean the biggest knuckle on my actua finger, not the one that connects it to my hand. It is my dominant hand, and I am very rough on my hands....however, none of my other knuckles have a ny soreness or pain. The Urgent Care told me to follow up this week- whick I am doing Thursday- with my primary Dr if the pain has not gone away. They said xrays would happen and blood work to look for Uric acid and i think RA as well. The swelling grew on Sunday but has since gone down.
Avatar f tn My Vitamin D level was 23 and my doctor suggested taking 1000IU of Vitamin D a day. When he rechecked my levels my D level moved up to 30. He stated that he would like to see my levels higher, but oh well. After some reading, I increased my Vitamin D to 5000IU 3x a week or 15000IU a week. This increased my vitamin D level to 40. I now as taking 5000IU a day/35000 a week. I have been so week and unable to do small tasks for years now. I just am wishing to have the old me back.
Avatar f tn I recently stopped taking a daily and have notice a tremendous change in my physical body. I haven't had an ulceration, BUT I have noticed my sacral region and my finger joints HURT!!! If you read the link, it is called viral arthritis. IT SUCKS...BAD!!!
Avatar n tn My right leg showed that I had problems coming from my L4-5 area where I have my problem. So that does explain the pain I get on my right side.I was supposed to have an emg done on my arms by my doctor but I didn't know if I was losing my job so I was afraid to run up any bills with my co-pay. I recently got my co-pay for my MRI and have to figure out how to pay that. The guy who gave me my emg thought I was crazy because Ilove shocks.
Avatar m tn I have 3 children to look after and they are upset seeing me unwell for so long. My joints are very easily hurt I went over on my ankle yesterday and its been useless since. My wrists are the same. My knees and elbows too.

Avatar n tn The cavity below my right ear lobe is tender when pushed Directly below the cavitity, there is a hard medium sized muscle (?) (I can move it when I move my jaw with my head tilted upward when trying to "wiggle" my ears) that is enlarged on my right side, not on my left. Massaging it does not make it softer, just sore.
Avatar n tn It's been almost a year now since my break of my PIP joint on my right pinkie finger. Since discontinuing PT at my doctors recommendation, the stiffness has not improved. On the other hand, it hasn't apparently gotten much worse either, so I'm resigned to the fact that I have very limited movement in that finger and it feels like it was injected with cement. It's got maybe 20 degrees of movement and is stuck at a very inconvenient angle.
16891434 tn?1452223072 For about 7 or 8 months I have been cracking the joints and knuckles in my fingers. Now when I lower my middle finger on my left hand there is a little pop and the finger moves down a bit. And since i had also been cracking my toes the toes on my right foot make a pop too. I am kinda worried because I am only 13. Please help.
Avatar n tn how to explain these joints pain that does not go away; my flu (or whatever) has not gone away quite yet, even after 7 weeks; I still cough. Please without dismssing this; these joint pains must be serious; you do not get joint after the flu?
798555 tn?1292791151 I have been fighting body aches, tiredness, massive weight gain, my ears itched so badly, I was always in a bad mood. my knees hurt along with my ankles and wrists. my hips and lower back hurt all the time no matter what I do. I am starting to work out again and trying to get my body to start working again but I don't know what is going on. It seems like everything is falling apart. Here are my labs. January 7th 2013 TSH 25.30 0.34-4.82 uIU/mL FREE T4 0.63 0.59-1.
Avatar m tn It feels like my brain is being over-protective of my eyes. Closing my eyes usually does not 'help'. The sensation of "about to be poked in the eye" is still there. Shielding my eyes from the culprit (putting my hand between my eyes and the fork) is a quick remedy. Belonephobia/Aichmophobia is the fear of Needles, Pins & Sharp Objects, but I have no problems giving blood, needles, or having the 'sharp objects' pointed or touching elsewhere at/on my body.
