I've written about my achilles tendonitis in both feet and that I'm currently undiag, awaiting appt Aug 28....no my hands that have been aching are displaying these symtoms....
 
Left hand hurts the most, middle finger swells off an on, but now the knuckles at base of fingers hurt the most and ache deeply, they are swelling, not the fingers. There is a fluid buildup between the knuckles there and puffiness on the palm side too at the base of my fingers. If I massage my hand there is swelling from the base of my fingers down to the middle of my hand, on the palm side.
 
Does this make sense? Anyone relate? Tendonitis here you think? Is this doing damage? My grip is weaker, it hurts to hold the steering wheel or a book, etc....

Hey kaymac.. it does sound like a type of arthritis.. the appt you have on the 28th, is that with a rheumy? Have you tried taking anything like Aleve or Motrin to help with the swelling and/or pain? Hang in there, and please let us know how you are doing..

Yes, the appt is with a rheumy. A new one, so there are lots to address!

I'm on Relafin for inflammation, but occasionally take advil instead because it helps better with the pain.

I will keep posting. Thanks for replying.
