I have found Nettles 1600mg/day (I used Dr. Christopher's organic Nettles 4 capsules/day) to be helpful for my hand & joint pain. Stephen Harrod Buhner recommends Nettles 1500mg/day for Lyme Arthritis.
Also a homeopathic remedy Causticum 30C has been very helpful for my hand/joint pain, restless legs, and wandering leg pains. I take 2 pellets as needed...usually only 1 dose clears up the problem for a while (days-weeks).
I hope this helps - take care,
