You may have rheumatoid arthritis or gout or it may be a symptom of an auto immune disease. Usually blood tests are needed to determine the exact cause so that it can be treated correctly. Anti-inflammatory medication like deep heat and neurofen may help for the pain but will not treat the underlying cause. Please see your doctor.
