Dear Aubrey

Thank you for visiting health24.com.

There can be a number of reasons for his symptoms and signs. I therefore, suggest that he consults a Rheumatologist, in order for him/her to do the necessary tests, i.e. x-ray of both hands and blood work. Once this has been done, a diagnosis can be made.

Kind regards
