Your not old! I just turned 49 last month, so I'm right behind you. We're not getting old we are getting better! I forgot what that commercial was that said that... .
I agree with omega about calling your doctor. It does sound like arthritis, but you need to let the doc check it out while its swollen and painful. Let us know what you find out. Hope it gets better soon. Take care and your in my prayers.
Love ya, Babs
