Our expert says:
Please ask your doctor to refer you to a rheumatologist who can do a thorough investigation and prescribe the correct treatment. I presume the treatment that was originally prescribed was anti-inflammatory drugs. If this really helped, you can also contact that doctor again. There are various types of arthritis and I cannot really comment on what you have. Osteo-arthritis is the wear and tear changes that we experience in our joints as we grow older and it is also very dependant on the type of activities we did(e.g sports etc). It is therefore not limited to "old" people, but get an expert to examine you. It cannot be nice for you not to be able to play with your baby.
