I also have pain in my hands and feet. I don't have arthritis, but if I did I think this is what the pain in my hands and feet would feel like. I also have pain in my shoulders and my hips ache so bad sometimes when I'm sitting for too long. It will also wake me in the middle of the night hurting. Its either my hips or my elbows! There are times that my toes feel like I have a string wrapped around the middle of them. I drive 4 hours a day back and fourth to work and by the time I get home at night I am in so much pain I can hardly stand it. If I can make myself move around a little when I get home it eases the pain enough that I can survive without medication.
I hope you are able to get answers soon!
Laugh until your belly hurts and then just a little more!
