You will have to consult a doctor for an examination, blood tests and x-rays of all the affected joints. It is possible that you have a form of arthritis, which will have to be investigated and treated.

i know how you feel, i have been for tests, been from doctor right through to specialist - they have done all blood tests, x-rays etc and all they can find is that i test positive for heavy infection
no anti inflamatory or anti biotic helps - i can only use cortosone to make me mobile - internis told me it is dangerous to carry on with it
i am also waiting to hear WHAT NEXT

Hi, I started with the same pains 4 years ago, Especially in my hands and feet. I eventually went for blood tests and I was diagnosed with RA.(Rheumatoid Arthritis). I am now 45 yrs old. This disease is common in woman our age. Please go have it checked out soon as the pain will only get worse. All the best.
