Hi Anna Marie

It does sound as if you have a type of arthritis called gout - that is when the uric acid levels are too high and causing arthritis like symptoms. You need to limit/avoid the intake of food such as red meat, alcohol etc. Anything that can make too much acid should be avoided. There is also medication available to lower the levels, but you should see your doctor again.
