Hi,

about once every 2 months I wake-up with fairly intense pain, localized swelling, tenderness, and loss of flexability in either right index knuckle or middle finger knuckle. The funny thing is is that the symptoms last only a maximum of 48 hrs, then I'm 100% again. I hope this is not a precursor to arthritis.

What is going on? Can anyone shed some light on this?

Thanks,

Mike

Well, it is definately arthritis, not a precursor to it.
You should see rheumatolgist to see what kind of arthritis it is.
It sounds very similar to psoriatic arthritis but it may also be gouty one.
Relax, it cat remain on this severity or even can remit, but it realy sounds like arthritis.
Tell something about your age, sex and general health status?

Hi, thanks.

I'm 27, white, male, healthy, really active. I will see a rheumatologist to see which type of arthritis it is, the next time it flares up I guess. I can't find anything online regarding any info. about people who have similar episodic symptoms (i.e. flares up so irregularly). Just want to make sure that if there is something preventative, I will get on it.
