If the joints are warm, red or swollen, you may have an underlying infection or inflammation ( could be an auto-immune problem) Some bacteria and virus infections can cause joint pain, osteoarthritis also usually start in the larger joints. Please see your doctor as I think x/rays and some blood tests may be needed to diagnose the exact cause. Treatment is usually with an anti-inflammatory and pain medication symptomatically, but cortisone, antibiotics may also be needed. You can try a combination of Neurofen 400 mg 3 times a day and Dolorol Forte 2 every 6 hours if you are not allergic to any ingredients for the time being
