I also have an arthritis question. I am a 49 year old male with no history of RA but recently noticed that my mid-joint in my right index finger was constantly achy, feeling like an old sprain. At first, I thought I might have gotten bit or stung by an insect, because the joint feels slightly swollen. Mind you, it does not look swollen or deformed. I don't remember specifically injuring it and feel no pain or soreness in the other fingers or in any other part of my body - just this single joint. Is this how arthritis starts?
