Our expert says:
It could also be osteo-arthritis- the wear and tear changes most of us experience. This also runs in families. Also remember there are about 60 different forms of arthritis and some are difficult to diagnose- especially if it is what is called a sero-negative arthritis. If this is really bothersome, I would suggest that you do in fact see your GP for some very basic tests and x-rays and probably a course of anti-inflammatories.
