Dear Andrea
If you're not satisfied with the opinion you got from your doctor, you can ask to be referred to a rheumatologist who specialises in all forms of arthritis. It is probably a bit of osteo-arthritis (wear and tear changes as we age), but you need to have a physical examination and possible some blood tests done.

The information provided does not constitute a diagnosis of your condition. You should consult a medical practitioner or other appropriate health care professional for a physical exmanication, diagnosis and formal advice.
